Prayer for the First Week of Advent 

“All-powerful God, increase our strength of will for doing good that Christ may find an eager welcome at His coming and call us to His side in the kingdom of heaven, where he lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit one God, forever and ever, Amen”.

Angel Tree & Christmas Hampers

Advent … a time for waiting and anticipating; a time to prepare our hearts to receive God’s gift of His Son, Jesus.  To help us experience the loving act of sharing and giving to those less fortunate, we invite our community to participate in our Advent outreach project: The Angel Tree/Christmas Hamper Campaign.
