You heard it on Sunday. The meaning of Christmas has been stolen. Lets join together at Peace and take it back. We are going to WORSHIP FULLY this year, SPEND LESS and GIVE MORE. See the list below for ways that you can grow our conspiracy this week!

BRING JOY TO A CHILD………It is actually quite simple. The Vina Moses tree is officially “up” at Peace. Select a tag from the tree and then purchase a gift for that child. A full listing of gift ideas for each age is available on the tree. Place the UNWRAPPED gift under the tree no later than December 10, 2015. We only have 10 days to cover gifts for 35 children–thank you for your consideration!

HOLIDAY CHEER…………..Thank you for your amazing response this week! We still have some more time to gather items for these hygiene baskets. Remember……all that is collected goes to Philomath Community Services and specifically for children ages 0 to 18 in need. We are well past our goal of 2 complete hygiene baskets, but lets continue to do the best we can! The final day to drop off your items will be December 9th. We need the following for each basket:

1 sturdy laundry basket
1 dish soap (sink not machine)
1 hair shampoo
1 hand lotion
1 dental floss
2 men’s deodorant
1 pack of men’s razors (dozen)
2 roll paper towels
1 liquid laundry detergent
2 hand soap (bar)
1 hair conditioner
1 toothpaste
4 toothbrushes
2 women’s deodorant
1 pack toilet paper (6 rolls)

MID-WEEK ADVENT WORSHIP.………..Worship with the Peace family in the form of Marty Haugen’s Holden Evening Prayer on Wednesday (December 2nd) at 7:00 pm.

CINDERELLA……………The best gift we can give to others is ourselves. Take a friend or by yourself and support our local youth at Philomath High School as they perform Cinderella. Shows are this week: December 3 at 7:00 pm, December 4 at 7:00 pm and December 5 at 1:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
