Let’s do some Holy Name-Calling!  We have so many names and titles for Jesus — Emmanuel, Holy Savior, Branch of Jesse’s tree, Blessed Babe.  Click here to join our Advent activity guide, a family devotional inspired by scripture and based on some of the names people have given to Jesus over the years, with new content each week. For a copy of a booklet with all four weeks, contact the church office.

 

Let’s Fill the Stable!  You are invited to share the journey through Advent with our neighbors in need. Each week, as we add characters to our creche scene — the Holy Family, the animals, shepherds, angels, and (finally!) the baby Jesus — we will also “fill the stable” with those things they will need. And we will do it together, sharing pictures along the way! This week, we are raising funds for Alameda County Food Bank. Click here to share photos of your nativity-scene-in-progress!
