Advent Reflections Devotional: The seasons of the church year are meant to teach us essential truths of the spiritual life.  The seasons offer us information about the spiritual life and also the opportunity to practice some of the key disciplines of our Christian faith and to do so in community.  The Advent season marks the beginning of the church year.  We offer Advent Reflections: Revive, Restore, Reveal  by Ruth Haley Barton as our Advent devotional this year.  They are available after worship in Gordon Hall or in the church office for $4 per copy.

Meet Human Needs

Gainesville Community Ministry are at a critical need of food and financial resources.  At this time, they are in desperate need of all types of nonperishable foods.  Please check the Publix Buy One Get One special this week.  When shopping the BOGO at Publix, you can use 2 coupons even though you are only paying for one item.  Thank you to all who have helped to Meet Human Needs.  Please remember that the need is great year round.

 

PARKING! Free parking is available in our big lot, in the grass lot just to the east of the big lot and behind the Salon Syx building to the west of our lot.  Using these alternate parking spaces first will leave our parking lot available for guests.  Vehicles must park facing west on the north side of the SW 1st Avenue (the street behind the church) or you will be ticketed by the city.

 

Blessings,
Dr. Robert Shettler, Pastor
