This is the time of the year
where members of Capitol Hill Christian Church (DOC) are called to reach out
and adopt a local family, from Garton Elementary School, who is in need of food
for a Thanksgiving meal, Christmas Gifts and food for a Christmas meal.
The family we are adopting this year is a family of
five with a son who is in third grade, a daughter in fifth grade
who both attend Garton, and an eighth grade boy who attends Goodrell
When the resource teacher gets us more information
about their needs, we will let you know through the Sunday reminder email, at
church during announcements, and the gift Christmas tree that will be put up in
the fellowship hall for Advent.
We will be helping the same family for Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving (and Christmas) Dinner Menu
Apple, Pumpkin and/or Pecan pie
Green Bean Casserole Ingredients:
3 cans of green beans
2 or 3 cans of crème of mushroom soup
can of fried onions
The Christmas meal is the same as above
with changing the meat to a large ham.
It is a blessing to
bless this family with food and gifts while they are going through a tough time
during the holiday season. As God has blessed us abundantly, may we bless those
in need in God’s flock this holiday season.
Thanks to all of you
at CHCC who are going to participate in the Adopt-a-family ministry for
Thanksgiving and Christmas. As we get closer to these holidays, I will communicate
through the Sunday reminder email I send out each week.
The Advent theme is the
need for prayer: Praying during Advent for Hope, Peace, Joy, Love and knowing
Volunteers are needed
to read the Advent meditations and light the Advent Candle at the beginning of
worship each week. Please let me know if you and your family would like to volunteer.
We will also have
Advent Bible Study and prayer time on Wednesday nights starting on Wednesday,
December 6 at 6:30 pm, December 13th at 5:30 pm, and December 20th at 6:30 pm.
And Sunday mornings from 9 a.m.- 9:45 a.m. December 3, 10, 17 and 24. Advent is
a time for us to get ready to birth Jesus into our hearts. A time to reconnect
with God. Here is an opportunity to do that.
