Advent begins on Sunday, November 27 and King Street Church is excited to offer you some options for your devotional time during the advent season. This year we will offer copies in the lobbies (not online) of “This Will Be a Sign For You” by Henri Nouwen and “Joy to the World” by John Piper.
Our next baptismal service will be on New Year’s Day, Sunday, January 1, 2023. If you would like to be baptized, or would like to learn more about this step of obedience, attend the class Sunday, December 4, in M31 at 11:00 am. Want to participate, but can’t attend the class? Contact Molly Shull.
PrimeTimer Christmas Luncheon
We will enjoy a delicious meal of stuffed chicken with all the trimmings on Wednesday, December 14 at 12 noon in the Baker Center. Cost is $20/person and is due by Monday, December 5. Contact Frances Humelsine at 717-263-8633 to reserve your spot and make arrangements for payment. Don’t miss out on this special event!
Supplies (and toothbrushes!) Needed
OMM’s next Community Distribution is Saturday, December 10. In addition to the supplies that they usually collect, they would like to bless their recipients with toothbrushes. If you can contribute supplies or toothbrushes (single, 2-packs or 4-packs), place your items in the collection bins in each lobby by December 7. For a full list of what they need, see the Messenger.
The Street Student Christmas Party
Students in grades 6-12, grab your ugliest Christmas sweater and come for our party on Wednesday, December 7 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. Doors open at 6:45 pm. We’ll have food, games, prizes, worship and a time of sharing from God’s Word.
Cold Weather Drop-In Shelter
The shelter opens December 1. In previous years, King Street Church has provided volunteers and food each Wednesday evening from December through March. This has proven to be a great ministry to the homeless in the Chambersburg area. If you are interested in volunteering and/or providing food, call John Comerer at (717) 372-3725 or sign up online at Service Central.
Order Deadline: Monday, December 12
You can dedicate a Christmas poinsettia in honor of or in memory of a loved one ($10 for a 6-inch plant). Beginning November 20, you can pick up a form in the lobby, sign up at the church office at 56 N. Second Street, or pay online here.
