Advent Calendar Pick up Today

We’re handing out Advent calendars for children at worship this week, but if you worship online or miss it we’ll have them ready for pickup in the office on Monday. We also have Advent calendars for families, one per household.

Coming of the Messiah
Isaiah 9:6-7
The wonderful season of Advent begins today and we begin our exploration of the Coming of the Messiah by diving into Isaiah 9:6-7. This week we'll start by discussing Jesus' role as our Wonderful Counselor.

Poinsettia Tree Dedications

If you would like to purchase a poinsettia in honor of or in memory of a loved one and have that recognized on the church’s slides and in the bulletin, there’s a google form on the church website to fill out. The poinsettias will be used to decorate our Sanctuary during Advent. Poinsettias are $20 each. If you prefer, you can contact the office. Deadline for your dedication being recognized in the slides or the bulletin during the Christmas season is December 10th. You can pick up your poinsettia after the church’s final Christmas service of the year on December 25th. If you have any questions, reach out to Debby in the church office.

Christmas Bazaar coming December 3

The Crozet United Women In Faith’s Christmas Bazaar returns December 3! This is a great opportunity to shop locally and support the United Women in Faith’s mission work. There will be vendors spaced out throughout the fellowship hall, a cafe offering breakfast and lunch as well as home-baked and prepared foods for sale from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. Come out, grab some gifts and goodies and get into the Christmas spirit!

Jump In and Step Up Challenge

As we head into the final quarter of 2022, we’re asking you to prayerfully consider jumping in or stepping up to the challenge of helping Crozet UMC reach its goals this year. Here’s an update on our giving/donations goal for Sept - Dec. 2022 of $175,575. As a congregation, we’ve made significant progress towards that goal, as of Nov. 13 with giving of $102,381.50. That leaves us with $73,193.50 to go before the end of the year..

For more detailed information, check out the email from September 23.

Angel Tree

In the back of the sanctuary there is a tree with tags for items for our friends at English Meadows. The tree is up starting November 28 for people to take a tag or tags. Items include body wash, toothpaste and other hygiene items. This is an excellent chance to bless and assist our neighbors who are part of the Crozet Community. If you have any questions, you can reach out to Bonnie Gibbs. On the church blog next week we’ll have information about how to order items online and have them shipped to reach their destination. The deadline for bringing English Meadows items to the church is December 18.

Save the Date: December 9 Methodist Day with Habitat for Humanity

Coming up Friday, December 9, is Methodist Day with Habitat for Humanity, 8:30 am-3:30 pm. Habitat will provide all the tools and safety equipment needed as well as the expertise. There are six or seven projects going right now for Habitat including the work in Southwood out on Fifth Street Extended. A ton of folks answered that they wanted to work with Habitat in our Small Group Survey and this is a great opportunity. We’ll have details as we get closer to the date on where you’ll get to work. Email Bart to let him know you’d like to come out and help be a part of the housing solution in our community.
