2019 Northeast Philly CROP Hunger Walk
Many thanks to all who donated and volunteered to walk in the CROP Hunger Walk. This year's walk raised almost $6,000 for hunger causes in Philadelphia and around the globe. Walkers from Faith Lutheran raised over $1,600. Our special salute to Deacon Dorothy Wilson who was our super fund-raiser!
This year's Women of Faith holiday bazaar is scheduled for Saturday, December 7. It will feature a craft sale, tasting table, raffles, bake sale, and a visit from Santa Clause for the kids (They get their picture taken with the Old Elf, too!). Our bazaar is from 9 am to 2 pm. Proceeds go to the many charities supported by the Women of Faith.
Delta Family service is collecting new or gently-used shoes to send to people in the developing world who are starting micro-businesses. If you have a good pair of shoes (adult or child) which you can donate, please bring them to church on or before December 8th.
The "Giving Tree" is now in the narthex for gifts for the children of Silver Springs/Martin Luther School (Soon to be Gemma Services). Silver Springs is a home for abandoned and abused children. You can help make such a child's Christmas brighter by taking an ornament from the tree and purchasing the gift written on that ornament. Please bring the gift unwrapped to church by December 8th and it will go to a deserving but needy child at Silver Springs.
The Hallelujah Singers, a choir composed of singers from congregations all over Northeast Philadelphia, will perform their Christmas Cantata, "Come and See, Go and Tell" at Faith on Sunday, December 8 at 3 pm. The concert is FREE, but a free-will offering will be taken to benefit a local women's shelter. Refreshments will be served after the concert.
Feast of Justice
Feast of Justice is expanding their ministry but is in need of volunteers and capital improvements to their facilities. You can make a monetary gift to Feast by writing a check to Faith and putting "Feast" on the memo line.
Women of Faith Annual Christmas Party
Any women who can read this is invited to Faith's annual Women's Christmas Party. this year the party will be a Lamberti's Restaurant on Street road at Bustleton at 6:30 pm on Thursday the December 12th. Cost is $30 per person. There will be the notorious "Bid 'n' Buy" as well as much food and fellowship. Sign up on the bulletin board at church.
Rejoice, It's Ugly Sweater Sunday
John the Baptist wondered if Jesus was the true Messiah. Jesus told John's disciples to tell John what they had seen and heard: the sick made well, the blind made to see, the poor having good news preached to them. The Third Sunday in Advent is a time to rejoice that our Lord is active in the world. Let's celebrate by wearing our most egregiously ugly Christmas sweaters and enjoying doughnuts and coffee after church.
Sunday School Christmas Play
"The Good News Flash" is the title of this year's Sunday school play. A story is breaking, and a reporter from the Bethlehem Times is sent to get the scoop. Come watch our youngsters tell the Christmas story. Saturday, 7 pm. Refreshments to follow.
