Get to Know Your Community Partners
Advent and Christmas are often called the “Season of Giving.” As Christians, we associate the very idea of gift-giving to God, in that God constantly gives – love, new life, grace, and spiritual gifts. God’s love for us is pure grace, and the new life we encounter through Christ equips us with spiritual gifts in order to build up the body of Christ and transform the world. In Advent, we await the coming of Christ, and in our waiting, we have the opportunity to reflect upon how the physical gifts we give might become expressions of the spiritual gifts within us. During this season, please join us in St. Francis’ Hall as we discover ways we might use our spiritual gifts to give to our Community Partners.

Upper Room

Knit one Pray Too

Facilitated by  Rev. Jennifer Deaton, Susan Nix, and Anne Robertson

If you’ve ever wanted to give knitting a try, and learn how it is as much a practice of prayer as it is making loops of yarn over needles, join us in the Upper Room on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am.  No experience or materials necessary – just eager hands and an open heart! We will be making hats for our Tuesday Morning Breakfast Club.

Yelverton Room
