Advent Serving and Learning (Intergenerational )

Sundays, December 3-17
9:45-10:45am in the Parlor
Facilitator: JoAnn Lytle-Olson & Guests

Advent begins the new liturgical year. It is a time for excitement and anticipation. It is also a time of great gratitude for the many blessings of life. Gratitude naturally calls us to think of those who are less fortunate and in need.

This 3-week class is designed to give adults, children, and youth opportunities to reflect on our blessings and learn more about how we are called to be God’s hands and feet in a hurting, lonely, and hungry world. Each week, we will work together to attach lists of needed food items to paper grocery bags. These bags will be distributed to members after worship in December. Members are asked to fill the bags and return them to the church. Our guests for class each Sunday will come from:

  • December 3 (with 1st & 2nd Graders): NC Central Food Pantry, which addresses food insecurity on campus
  • December 10 (with 3rd & 4th Graders): Society of St. Andrew, which salvages fresh, nutritious produce from American farms, delivering it to agencies that serve the poor
  • December 17 (with Senior Highs): TROSA, which helps substance abusers recover by providing comprehensive treatment, work-based vocational training, education, and continuing care
