Friends:

“Why do we rush about…..looking for God who is here at home with us, if all we want is to be with God?  Let us fly to our beloved homeland – from the noise that is around us to the joys that are silent and present within.” St. Augustine

Please choose an Ornament from our Giving Tree this Sunday.  Your gifts will support:  our Partnership friends in Laurel Galan, Nicaragua and Lwamondo Parish in Venda, South Africa; or hungry families in need in our County; or homeless families who are staying with Shelter, Inc. in Concord.  Details will be given on Sunday.  The gifts will need to be presented at worship on December 18.

Those who can assist Diana Keller with transportation to worship on Sundays (she lives off of Crow Canyon) are asked to contact our church office.

We will have a Christmas Tree Decorating Party after worship on December 18.  Christmas Carols and festive goodies too.

The Sing-along-Messiah is presented on December 18 at 7:00 pm at the San Ramon Presbyterian Church on Alcosta Blvd.  Tickets are $10.  Go to www.srvmessiah.info for tickets or get them at the door.

Christmas Eve Worship:  Children and Family worship at 5:00 pm;  Candlelight and Communion at 10:00 pm.

Christmas Day Worship:  9:30 am.  Invite family and friends to join you.

Jazz at Peace hosts Anton Schwartz and Inga Swearingen this Sunday at 5:00 pm.  An utterly unique and daring sax and vocalist presentation.  You will be amazed.

Personalized M&Ms with a lovely cat face on them….do you think Annie has enjoyed her birthday?

Advent Blessings,  Pr. Steve
