Gifts ideas and a collection basket is set up in the Narthex.

Wednesday, Dec 13We celebrate the Advent season with our annual Christmas Luncheon. It will be held at the home of Rhonda Lanzi. Our favorite holiday guest, Robin Ideström, will share favorite Holiday songs and lead us in our traditional Christmas caroling. We welcome all ladies of Jesse Lee to come and join us in celebrating the coming of our Lord. Our Christmas Gathering will start at 9:30 a.m. with Robin’s musical program at 10:00 a.m. Carpooling will leave from the Carriage House at 9:15 a.m.
We need your coats, hats, scarves and gloves! Girl Scout Troop 50784 is collecting new and gently used coats, gloves, hats and scarves to give to those in need at the Dorothy Day House in Danbury. Last year we collected and distributed nearly 700 coats and thousands of hats, scarves and gloves to the Danbury community in need at Santa's Workshop, the Saturday before Christmas. Please spread the word to neighbors, friends and family - we are collecting donations of all sizes - infants to adults. (Important note: while all sizes are needed, we are in desperate need of children's outerwear!). There are so many in need of warmth! We have placed a collection box in front of the coat closet and ask for all donations to be dropped off at the church by December 14. If the coats are too heavy to transport to Jesse Lee, we would also be happy to pick up the coats from your home. Please contact Alexa Sasse 203-438-5168 or Lindsay Sierakowski 203- 438-8141to schedule a pick-up. Thank you in advance for your help.
Please support our charter Boy Scout Troop 76 by buying their Christmas wreaths under the portico on Nov 26 and Dec 3 after the 9 and 11 a.m. services.

7pm to 8 pmBible study can be challenging in part because the Bible was written in a different culture and time, and with a wide variety of literary genres. Poetry is heard differently than prose, or proverbs, and sometimes the assumptions about how to hear influences what we hear. Pastor Bill Pfohl will be offering a Sporadic Wednesday evening lecture/discussion series to address a central motif of the Bible. God working through people in order to save people. Learn more>>
