United Thank Offering for Advent – Begins November 27

  • Advent is a time of preparation and expectation for the coming celebration of our Lord’s nativity, and for the final coming of Christ “in power and glory.” This year, during Advent, we invite you to be mindful of your blessings and gratitude during this time of waiting. We will be collecting donations for United Thank Offering to help people all over the world. You can pick up a box in the back of the Sanctuary (Narthex) and give daily thanks to God for blessings great and small by putting a coin in the box. This is a meaningful practice for all ages and children are invited to participate. Every penny will find its way to help fulfill a need somewhere in the world.

Then, on Sunday, February 19 (just before Lent begins), bring your box to church and we will collect them at the altar. Donations go to the national UTO office where they will help people all over the world. You can find out more about UTO global work at THIS LINK. Thank you!

UTO Prayer
Gracious God, source of all creation, all love, all true joy: accept, we pray, these outward signs of our profound and continuing thankfulness for all of life. Bless those who will benefit from these gifts through the outreach of the United Thank Offering, and keep each of us ever thankful for all the blessings of joy and challenges that come our way; through Him who is the greatest gift and blessing of all, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.
