Daily Bread Christmas Devotional
From Our Daily Bread, Celebrating Jesus: 10 Christmas Reflections on Christ and Community brings focus during this special season on the oneness we enjoy because of Christ. Jesus made it possible for us to be right with God and live in harmony with each other. His invitation into the family of believers is for everyone. So let’s come together this Christmas season to celebrate the One who welcomes us all with open arms.
Pick up your copy in the Our Daily Bread bins near the church entrances.
Donations and Giving Trees
Choose an ornament from the Giving Trees and purchase a gift to help a local family.
There are still quite a few ornaments left on our Giving Trees and we’d like to see all of these gifts spoken for this weekend. Select an ornament marked with a specific item that you will purchase and then return to the church. We have extended the deadline to return the gifts to Tuesday, December 14. Our Mission Team will deliver them to the charities that we are supporting on December 15. Thank you for your generosity, FPC fam!
Alternatively, you can drop off or mail a check–clearly marked “Giving Tree Gifts”–to the church office. Your generous support benefits WEB, Shelter from the Storm Ministries, Christmas Angel, and Waunakee Neighborhood Connection.
We are also collecting paper goods for the Waunakee Food Pantry at the south entrance to the education wing.
