Christmas Eve is one week away (I know it’s hard to believe). On Wednesday, we posted to our Facebook page our Christmas Eve service (if you missed it, you can find it here.)  We also have a simple PDF invitation you can send your friends and family here. We encourage you to share it on social media or forward it to family, friends, coworkers, etc.

This Sunday, we’ll celebrate the 4th Sunday of Advent with a story we normally here on Christmas day from John’s gospel.  We’ll sing the carols, Clare Dingus is playing the oboe, the choir is singing, and joy and peace can be found here.  Take time out from the craziness of the season on Sunday at 10:30!  PALS also meet at 9:30 in the Gathering Space.

Before I leave you, I have to share a quick story. Back in November we conducted a focus group with members who have joined the church in the past 10 years.  Out of 10 “family units” there, 9 first came to Faith Des Peres because of an invitation. Our invitations to others matter and can change their perspective on God and life. So don’t forget to spread the word and intentionally invite someone you think will find the church meaningful.  This is a great time of year to come!

Have a great Friday, and I will see you Sunday.
