Pilgrim e news November 27 2010
Welcome Advent! The Hanging of the Greens service is Sunday at 10:00. We have fun welcoming the holiday season as the Deacons dress up the sanctuary during worship. Child care for children up through 2nd grade. Older children can participate in the service and even help with the service if they like.
We’ll baptize Amity Hanlon and welcome her into our community. The congregation will honor her with gifts for infants at Safehaven–a shelter for women and children experiencing domestic violence. Gently used infant and toddler clothing, toys, and board books are great gifts as well.
Order your poinsettia during the coffee hour. Plants that retail at Engwalls for $25 can be ordered at Pilgrim for $20. In addition to your savings, the church receives $10 of each sale. Donate a plant to Pilgrim to beautify the sanctuary, or order a plant for your own use at home–or as a gift for someone. Orders are delivered to the church on Friday and can be picked up next Sunday.
Many thanks to all who volunteered this past week. We had eight volunteers at Damiano’s; plenty of soup on Tuesday; and a great meal at Harmony House on Wednesday.
Enjoy the snow. Charlotte
