ADVENT PRAYER

“It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes or bags!… Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! “Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas… perhaps… means a little bit more!”

2016 CHRISTMAS OFFERING

BENEFITTING THE HIGHLINE AREA FOOD BANK
As the Christmas season of giving ends in December, donations to the Food Bank drop significantly while the need continues to be just as great. With your donations, the Food Bank can purchase large quantities of bulk items, including produce at reduced rates. Please help our mission partner continue to be well stocked for the coming winter months.

To donate, use the special Christmas envelope included in your offering envelope packet or mark “Food Bank Christmas” on the memo line of your check or pew envelope. You can also donate online via the website at www.jkpcusa.org.

RECYCLE YOUR TREE AND HELP THE SCOUTS

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 31 AND JANUARY 7 FROM 9:00 AM TO 4:00 PM
Bring your Christmas tree to John Knox for recycling. Boy Scout Troop 392 will chip it and turn it into mulch that JKPC gets to keep for landscaping. This tree recycling event is an excellent way to help the scouts, the environment, and John Knox. The event is a fundraiser. If you’d like to support the Scouts, checks can be made out to Troop 392.

Please take all the decorations off your tree: no flocked trees, no tinsel, and no nails. Thanks so much for supporting the Boy Scouts.
