Weekly Update 12/9

THIS SUNDAY AT 10:15AM - We are excited for you to join us in person or online this Sunday at 10:15am! We are celebrating the Christmas season with Advent and a special sermon series titled "He Came." This Sunday, we are studying in Luke 2:10. We will rejoice in the coming of Christ to Earth as a helpless babe. When you check in on the church center app, be sure to select "in person" or "online", depending on where you are joining us from.

SEATING SPACE FOR GUESTS - Church family, we would like to ask you to help us make our building an even more welcoming atmosphere! We would love to care for latecomers or newcomers by leaving seating space available toward the back of our worship gathering. If you are willing and able to fill in the seats closer to the front, we would greatly appreciate it! 

NEW WOMEN'S MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY - We have started a new women's ministry called REFIT that will take place every Monday night from 6-7PM in the Community Center. This ministry will combine a dance workout with an opportunity for fellowship afterwards. This is a free event, and the Gospel will be shared every night after the workout! Invite your friends, family, co-workers, and any other ladies you know! ALL women of every shape and size are welcome! Find more info about this event HERE.

WE NEED YOU - We need your HELP...er...um... what we need is literally HELPER. Here's what we mean. Over the years we've collected tuna for Christmas Cheer and this year we are switching things up and collecting 'helpers' .. tuna helper, hamburger helper, and chicken helper. Please bring items to put in the Christmas Cheer barrel in the church lobby. We will collect through Sunday, December 19th. We love supporting Christmas Cheer as this organization recognizes, encourages, and offers food boxes to people in our community who could benefit from a little extra help on Christmas Eve. If you, or someone you know, would like to sign up to receive a food box, please sign up here. If you would like to help pack food boxes, please join us on Christmas Eve morning, 6:00 am at Polk County Fairgrounds.

CHRISTMAS GENEROSITY - Starting now through December 31st, you have the opportunity to contribute to a special Christmas offering. Your tax-deductible donation, above and beyond your usual giving, will be divided evenly in these three, great areas: Jumpstart our efforts to re-furnish & redecorate our children's ministry rooms, bless those in need in our community via our Benevolent Fund, and bless our missionaries with a financial gift. If you would like to make a donation that is above and beyond your ongoing financial support of our church, you can do so on the Church Center app (click "Give") or online at www.faithchurchdallas.org/give - please select the "Special Year-End" designation. You can also contribute via check, made out to Faith Church with "Special Year-End" in the memo line. Thank you so much for your cheerful generosity!

CANDLELIGHT CHRISTMAS EVE CELEBRATION - We invite you to join us for a one-hour, family friendly Christmas Eve celebration on Friday, December 24th, at 4:00 pm. Kids of all ages are welcome to join for the whole gathering! We can't wait to celebrate with you all! 

CHURCH OFFICE HOURS & CLOSURES - The church office is open Monday-Thursday, 12-4PM, and closed Fridays. The office will be closed December 27th-31st for Christmas and New Years. You can also contact us via phone, 503-623-8034, or email, info@faithchurchdallas.org.
