This Sunday we welcome in the first Sunday of our church year. During December, as we anticipate the coming of the Christ into the world, we will mark Advent by way of gathering and celebration. The choir will be helping us usher in the birth of Jesus Christ on several occasions. Please join us for The Sutton Place Annual Christmas Tree lighting December 3rd at 5:45, Christmas caroling on the steps later this month, and in our festive Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services.
In December our spiritual education includes approaches to welcoming the sacred presence of Jesus through integrating our minds and hearts in group spiritual direction. Guest Spiritual Director, Christa Gesztesi will join us for the first three Thursdays of Advent (December 5, 12 and 19) at 6:30 p.m.
Let us welcome the advent of the The Prince of Peace through the joy of giving. Please consider offering your service to the Community Meal on a Saturday. Robin Rule continues to lead us throughout the holidays in this very important ministry, at a time of year when income inequality is most explicit and egregious. Our Christian witness offers the strength and sustenance of community to others, as well as to us, during this joyous and sensitive time of year.
