Please join us at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, Stafford, for Advent. As we make preparations for Christmas, we wait with anticipation for Jesus. We will light the blue candles of the Advent wreath each week. The color of the season is blue, for hope. We will light the white candle in the center of the wreath on Christmas. The color of the Christmas season is white, for Christ who is pure.
From the ELCA website: “One of the most powerful storms ever recorded, Super Typhoon Haiyan, crashed across the central islands of the Philippines. Your help is needed to make a difference in affected areas. Through partnerships and as a member of ACT Alliance, Lutheran Disaster Response is responding to the most urgent needs of food, water, clothing, shelter, sleeping material and medicine.” To donate go to: www.elca.org
From the Lutheran World Relief site: Why Quilts? Why Now?
“LWR Mission Quilts are valuable tools in Lutheran World Relief’s work to end poverty, injustice and human suffering. Making LWR Mission Quilts provides an opportunity for Lutherans in the U.S. to answer God’s call to love and serve our neighbors in need. To those that receive them, they are a tangible symbol of God’s love and compassion. And to our partners, they provide an opportunity to reach out to communities with important information and services.”
Do you love to quilt? Please join us every 2nd and 4th Wednesday at 9 AM at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, Stafford. Supplies and training provided.
