Behold is a brand new event at Annunciation! On December 22 from 7-9pm, join us for a night of Eucharistic Adoration with praise & worship, followed by a time of fellowship in the hall. There will be a talk from Fr Joshua, and confession available throughout Adoration.

This is the perfect way to prepare your heart for Christmas and the coming of Christ. All are welcome. We hope to see you there!


POINSETTIA DONATIONS

If you would like to donate a Poinsettia to help decorate Annunciation’s sanctuary and grounds for Christmas, you can bring your purchased flowers to the church on December 23. If you drop off the flowers earlier, please leave them in the hall and ensure the soil is moist. We ask that you do not bring donations any earlier than December 21.


ADVENT OUTREACH – THANK YOU!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Advent Outreach! Your generosity will bring joy to families in our community this Christmas.

In the book of Luke, Jesus says that even the number of hairs on our head is known to him; his care for us is deeply personal, down to the specific, even mundane, details. We know that his love for our sponsored families is personal. He knows each one by name, and he knows their exact needs.

In addition to the 37 Christmas Dinner hampers, we needed 189 gift cards in order to provide for every family that requested our help this season. That’s a big ask! But when we counted up the gift cards received, we were amazed to find we had exactly 189. God is so good! After that count, we received additional gift cards, bringing the final number to 204. We were able to provide for every family on our list this year!


THE HOUSE – YOUTH GROUP

The House will resume on January 13, 2023! Have a Merry Christmas!
