Children, Youth & Family Ministry Upcoming Projects:  

There are two projects needing your support in November, both benefiting Triangle Community Ministry. The first is the flu care bags which we have done in the past. Help us create Flu Care Bags for residents of the Triangle Ministry Neighborhood. Deadline to bring in is Sunday, December 1st.  Items needed:

  • Gatorade (20 fluid ounces – smaller sizes are also acceptable)
  • Soda crackers (one sleeve)
  • Low sodium chicken noodle soup (one 10 – 15 ounce can)
  • Cough drops (one small bag, e.g., 25 – 30 drops)
  • Tea (5 – 8 wrapped bags, ideally chamomile, but anything will work)
  • Hand sanitizer (“personal size,” e.g. 1 – 2 ounces)
  • Bleach wipes (small container of 20 – 35 wipes)
  • Tissue (“personal size,” e.g., 10 – 15 tissues)
  • Disposable Face Mask (5 masks in plastic sandwich bag)

The second project replaces the sock collection for the Triangle Community Ministry. (The current sock collection is benefiting The Road Home.)  This year Triangle Community Ministry is asking Messiah to become part of a new Christmas gift collection. They are requesting items for kitchen Christmas packages. Items needed include:

  • 2 new dishcloths, 2 new dish towels
  • 2 new pot holders
  • 1 Sponge w/scouring side
  • 1 Plastic/wood or rubber spoon, 1 spatula
  • 1 Small bottle dish detergent

Items can be placed in the plastic bins in the Collection Area as you enter the Community Room. Thank you for your support!!

Upcoming Events:

Christmas Program Preparation

We would ask parents and children to make Sunday School attendance a priority, especially for 3rd and 4th graders who will be in the play.

Children’s Musical Performances on Christmas Eve

Make a joyful noise on Christmas Eve! Children are invited to share their musical talents with the Messiah community during the prelude at the 7:00 pm Christmas Eve worship service. A sign-up is available on the kiosk.  We are also looking for youth that want to be a part of the Christmas Eve Choir at the 7:00 pm service – sign up on the kiosk as well.

Be Part of a Messiah Holiday Tradition
Help Messiah celebrate the season of Advent by leading the lighting of the Advent candles during worship. Individuals or families are needed to do a brief reading and then light the Advent candles that encompass the sanctuary at all of the worship services during the four weeks of Advent. A sign-up is available on the kiosk.

Mark Your Calendar

The Sunday School children will sing at the end of the 8:15 service on Sunday, November 17th.
