Dear Church Family,
I know that those involved in the Flint Sunday School will be having some Advent Readings start this coming Monday. But if you or your family are looking for other ways to meditate on Christ this Christmas season, you can take a look at a short Advent Reading Plan on this website: http://www.focusonthefamily.com/parenting/holidays/making-meaningful-christmas-memories/celebrate-advent.aspx
Other Upcoming Events:
Advent Readings: For the next 4 Sundays, we will celebrate the first coming of Christ through Scripture Readings, the lighting of an Advent Candle, and prayer during our Sunday morning services.
Advent Sermon Series: We will be in Philippians 2 the next 4 Sundays of Advent. More info on this sermon series can be found here: http://cornerstone-marion.org/2012/11/27/advent-2012-series-unity-through-christ/
Cocoa and Carols, December 19: On Wednesday night December 19 everyone (young and old, musical and like me) are encouraged to go bless various residents in Marion with the singing of Christmas Carols. After the singing, we will share goodies together. Details to come.
Christmas Eve Service, December 24: On the evening of December 24 we will have a Christmas Eve Service at Cottage Grove Place (a senior center on the corner of 1st Ave and Cottage Grove in Cedar Rapids). More details to come.
A few other Christmas events are sure to come so please keep your eyes and ears open during church announcements and future Pastor Posts.
