If you would like to be part of decorating the sanctuary for Advent with the beautiful poinsettias you may order some at only $10 each and dedicate them to loved ones. Forms are on the Welcome Desk and need to be turned in to the office with your check or cash as soon as possible – no later than Sunday, Dec. 11th.
You can make a donation to 2nd Wind Fund and also cut your own Christmas tree at Carrie & Scott Fletcher’s on either Nov. 27th or Dec. 4th between 1:30 and 4pm. Please RSVP to them at 303-679-8288. They’ll also provide delicious hot cider, cocoa and cookies for that perfect Christmas preparation experience! Their home is at 9779 Beaver Pond Road in Conifer, and good tires are a must - all-wheel- drive vehicles are recommended.
Advent study groups began last week, discussing the book Names for the Messiah, which will provide the basis for the Advent sermon series by Pastor Gretchen. Everyone is welcome to participate – if you did not previously sign up please call the office.
Please plan to stay after worship service on Sunday, Dec. 4th for our annual Congregational Meeting and election and approval of the Terms of Call for Pastor Gretchen.
Things have certainly been all abuzz around GMPC of late with After Church, the new Labyrinth, hosting Presbytery, Tartan Tacos, Bagpiping, Sweet Street, and… I am so grateful to serve a community that embraces these new opportunities and approaches!
One of the best elements of the Christmas season is the music, and Sharon Blackstock has such a deal for us: tickets to a concert by her son Steve’s group, Columbine Chorale, on Sat. Dec. 17th at 7:00pm at Lakewood United Methodist Church: 1390 Brentwood Ave. (just east of 14th & Carr). Please see Sharon Blackstock to buy tickets at $15/$12 seniors/$5 students.
Mark your calendars so you don’t miss the poignant Longest Night (Blue Christmas) Service here at GMPC on Sunday, Dec. 11th at 5:00pm. This is a personal, contemplative service to appreciate and address the whole range of emotions of the Advent season. Four local Green Mountain churches will again collaborate on this service
Please feel free to enjoy the new Contemplative Prayer Area on the west side of the sanctuary, where you may relax in a chair or nearby pew for personal meditation and/or light a candle and write a prayer at the candle table.
