Faithful Women of Good Hope
Serving God and Others



Brief Announcements November 28, 2021 The altar flowers are donated by Jan & Tom Gledhill as a reminder on this 1st Sunday of Advent that it is a time to reflect & prepare our hearts to celebrate the birth of Christ.

Ladies, WELCA Christmas Gathering is the place to be on Monday, December 6 at 12:30 in the auditorium. Lunch will be provided. Offering for the day will be gifts for Oesterlen. Please pick up a shopping list of needs from our WELCA cupboard in the narthex. Please sign up in the office by November 28 if you will be attending.

Join Us for a Soup Supper! Yes, it’s the time of Advent and as such, we invite everyone to join us in our dining room for a Soup Supper at 5:00 P.M. (immediately before our 6:00 Advent Worship Service in our auditorium). Soup Suppers will be Wednesdays—December 1, 8 and 15 with wonderful homemade soups provided by WELCA, Parish Education and Youth Committees. For those attending the worship service or participating in one of our choirs, it is a time to come together and enjoy a warm bowl of homemade soup with your church family. If you happen to be one who acquired a soup bowl from our Empty Bowl Project it time to fill them, so bring your bowl; for those who did not purchase a bowl, don’t worry, we have plenty of other bowls for you to use. So we can better anticipate attendance for these suppers, please contact the Church Office and let us know who will be there no
later than November 29.

Advent mid-week worship services will be held on Wednesdays— December 1, 8 and 15 at 6 P.M. in the auditorium.

Ladies, remember to turn your Thankoffering in by the end of this year. If need an envelope, pick one up on the WELCA display in the narthex.
