Food, Faith & Sharing, November 27 2011 5:30PM to 7:00PM
An old Fashion covered dish supper in Community Hall for the Sunday evening after Thanksgiving will be our monthly Vesper Service. We will gather around tables of eight, share a meal and share experiences of memorable and meaningful Thanksgiving and Advent Season times in our lives. This is intergenerational, all ages included. We will have facilitators at each table to help the discussion and then we will conclude with communion at each table. We will design the discussion as a way to make the transition from
Thanksgiving  Weekend into the beginning of Advent, preparing for a more meaningful Christmas.
So, if you will be in town, join us for an old fashioned potluck supper, table fellowship, informal devotion and communion. For more information, please contact Dr Bill Tankersley or Sheri Nellis at sherinellis(at)bostonavenue.org
