ADVENT & CHRISTMAS AT MPC
SUNDAY WORSHIP IN ADVENT, BEGINS 11/28
Join us for Advent worship as we anticipate and prepare for the Savior's birth! Throughout the season, we'll be making our way through a worship series titled "And He Will Be Called." Pastor Danny will be preaching on the four royal titles given to Jesus in Isaiah chapter 9: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. All are welcome!
Sundays at 10:30AM, both in person and live streamed on YouTube
BLUE CHRISTMAS WORSHIP SERVICE
Blue Christmas is a service of remembrance and hope, and a service that takes seriously the reality that the holidays are not always "merry and bright." And yet, there is hope because of Jesus, the light of the world, whose light shines in our present darkness. All are welcome.
Tuesday, December 7th, 7:00PM (in-person & streamed live on Youtube)
CHRISTMAS EVE WORSHIP: CANDLELIGHT LESSONS AND CAROLS
We are so looking forward to being physically together on Christmas Eve this year! We hope you will join us for this service of lessons and carols, as we recall the greatest story every told: the birth of Jesus Christ.
Friday, December 24th, 7:30PM (in-person and streamed live on YouTube)
ADVENT MISSION PROJECT: COLD WEATHER KITS FOR HOME PDX
Winter is here and temperatures are dropping, and our neighbors living on the streets are in need of clean, dry items to keep them warm. We are collecting winter/cold-weather kits to be distributed by HOMEpdx to the unsheltered population. The last day to bring in your kits is Sunday, December 19th. Complete kits are preferred but loose items will be accepted as
The preferred kit would include: a scarf, a pair of gloves, a hat, a pair of socks And, optionally: Non-perishable snacks or treats (nothing too hard, because of dental issues), chap stick, hand warmers, thermal and other blankets, hygiene supplies, personalized notes
Whenever possible, please choose items that would be suitable for both men and women. Please keep in mind that the recipients do not have access to laundry and may dispose of the items if they become too dirty, so these items do not need to be of expensive quality. Ideally kits would be dressed up a little with ribbons, bows, or tissue paper so that it feels like a gift, and bundled into a zip lock or waterproof bag to keep them clean and dry until they are opened.
