Advent is time spent preparing and waiting for Jesus birth. To prepare we will have a Advent Festival on Sunday, December 6th at 6:00pm. At that time we will have a service decorating the Christmas tree and the rest of the church.
Following the service you will have an opportunity to give the gift of giving also known as Alternative Gift Giving. You can donate to the Forney Food, Lone Star CASA, and/or Grace Presbyterian Village Caring Fund in the name of a friend or loved one. You will be given an acknowledgement letter to give the person/people letting them know that a donation was given in their name. The Forney Food Pantry helps local families, Lone Star CASA advocates for children, and Grace Presbyterian Village Caring Fund provides assistance for residents that have used all of their resources.
We will also be doing the Shoebox Christmas this year. Bring shoeboxes with lids (preferably wrapped). We will put items such as hand sanitizer, wet wipes, tissue, lip balm, razors, toothpaste and toothbrushes in the shoe boxes. They will then be taken to the The Bridge homeless shelter and given to those in need.
Pizza will be provided, and the wonderful cooks of the congregation can bring a dessert if you would like. Plan on spending your Sunday evening in worship, decorating, socializing, and helping others. It is a special and fun time.
