I hope this note finds you well. It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is this coming Thursday. I always look forward to enjoying the day with family and friends.
Next weekend we will be starting a new message series, “Come Let Us Adore Him.” We will basically follow the Advent calendar and the topics of hope, love, joy and peace. Advent is a season of preparation… preparing for the birth of Christ (Christmas) and preparing for His return. “Advent” literally means “appearing” or “coming.” I want us all to be prepared for both!
If you were part of Revive Dayton, I’d like to invite you to continue on that path of outreach and sharing the Gospel with us. You can join us at Food for Huber this Saturday, 10A at the Vineyard or meet us at 10:45A (ends around 12:15-12:30P) at Aldersgate United Methodist Church on Troy Pike in Huber Heights. We will be distributing groceries, encouragement, hope and prayer to over 100 families!
We are also planning a Time To Revive: Dayton outreach for the 2nd Saturday of each month in partnership with the other churches that participated in TTR Dayton. Saturday, December 10 at our Riverdale Community Site, 9A to noon. We are planning to have a TTR outreach on the 2nd Saturday of each month.
I wanted to let you know that we have a page on our website that has all the details for our Christmas Store. You can sign up to serve and donate financially to support our efforts to show God’s love by providing gifts to families in need this Christmas. You can also donate new toys and other gifts simply by bringing them to church with you each weekend.
Store Hours: Thursday and Friday, December 15 and 16, 6:30P to 8:30P; and Saturday, December 17, 11A to 1P.

Christmas Day falls on a Sunday this year… We will be doing ONE service at 10A on Christmas Day (and ONE service New Year’s Day as well.) Saturday service on New Year’s Eve will be at 5:30P as usual.
I look forward this weekend.
