Allred / Shoaf Christ Care Meeting
The next Allred / Shoaf Christ Care meeting will be held on Monday, December 4th at 9:30am in the Parlor. All ladies are welcome to join!
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been looking at what the Bible teaches us about financial management. We’ve considered how we make and spend money, how we deal with debt, and how we save and invest for the future. We’ve examined how God wants us to relate to our money and earthly possessions, and we’ve explored what it means to live a life of gratitude and contentment. We have studied and worshiped . . . and we have responded!
On Commitment Sunday, we received your personal commitments for the coming year. Thank you for prayerfully considering what offering you will make to God through our church in the coming year. Your gifts are an act of worship and an investment in opportunities for God to work through us. Our prayer is that you will find greater contentment and simplicity in your life as you put God first in your giving and your living. May we all experience the joy that comes from knowing that our gifts honor God and change lives!
Community Luncheon Roundtable
December 7 @ Noon
Join Religious Coalition for a Nonviolent Durham Thursday, December 7 at noon in the fellowship hall of Elizabeth Street UMC (1209 N. Elizabeth Street) for our final Community Luncheon Roundtable of 2023. To close out the year, we'll welcome good friends from Prescriptions for Repair, a (recently completed) pilot initiative using restorative practices to "listen and learn what gun violence survivors need to heal." We're grateful for a chance to offer space and voice to folks who've spent many hours in deep, intentional listening to 30 of our neighbors most-impacted by gun violence. Come expecting a fresh and grounded perspective on the truth of our violence, and the gift of our sacred attention. As always, a delicious lunch is free and everybody is welcome.
In December, the Justice Team will be meeting on Sunday, December 10th at 7pm on Zoom. We hope you can make it!
