ADVENT KINDNESS

  • Acts 20: 34-35 “You know for yourselves that I worked with my own hands to support myself and my companions. In all this I have given you an example that by such work we must support the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, for he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
  • Late last year Kathy Miller gave us the attached list but we were well into the Advent season and though it too late to start such a project. But this year is different—different in so many ways because of the pandemic.
  • As COVID-19 cases increase, we are all being more careful and doing less. Here is a chance to actually do more.
  • We invite all members of Zion to follow the Reverse Advent Calendar. The items that you collect while shopping in the coming weeks will be used in our People’s Pantry during the holiday season. You can imagine that our pantry is well-used during this time of great concern.
  • You can drop off your items at the church when in-person worship resumes; during the Blessings Thrift Boutique in December; or during regular parish office hours.
