Welcome Wednesday Update

Dear Stillmeadow Family,

 

ADVENT DEVOTIONS

In this season of Advent, we have provided daily scriptures to guide our hearts and lives in waiting on God. Follow the guide here: www.stillnaz.com/christmas2018

 

CHRISTMAS EVE WORSHIP TIMES

Let's join our families and our hearts in worship on Christmas Eve! We'll have a 4PM service at our 350 Chestnut Street Campus and a 6PM service at our 400 Stillmeadow Lane Campus.

 

THANK YOU FOR THE CHRISTMAS BLESSING TREE GIFTS!

 

We collected gifts for 150 children and 50 gifts for our brothers and sisters in the York County Prison. Your generosity is inspiring!

 

CONGRATULATIONS TO WADE AND ROBERT OUR DECEMBER PINEAPPLE AWARD WINNERS!

For the month of December we decided to honor those children among us who show God's hospitality. So we awarded a pineapple to Wade from our Stillmeadow Lane Campus and to Robert from our Chestnut Street Campus. We're so proud of these two young men and who they are becoming in Christ!

 

DO THE WELCOME YEAR CHALLENGE OVER CHRISTMAS BREAK!

There are three ways we are inviting you to become involved in the Welcome Year. We’d love to see as many Stillnaz peeps joining in the Welcome Movement. If you’re like most, you may find it helpful to choose a partner to do the following with.

1. 10:02 Prayers. Set your alarm for 10:02 (AM or PM) and follow Jesus’s direction in Luke 10:02 to see that the harvest is plentiful and to pray for the Lord to send out workers. 

2. Welcome Walk Wednesdays. Take time on Wednesday to walk through your neighborhood and pray for your neighbors. We encourage you to fast on that day too! If you can’t give up food, consider social media, sugary foods, or something else.

3. The 3 Minute Challenge. Take the last three minutes before worship (or small group or a business meeting or class) and the first three minutes after to reach out to somebody you are less familiar with and extend welcome to them.

 

END OF THE YEAR GIVING

THANK YOU-For your generous support to continue Jesus’    mission here in York, across PA and around the world! As we approach the end of 2018 you may be planning for your taxes. Our last Sunday offering will be received on Dec 30, 2018. Any gifts mailed by or texted or given online by December 31, 2018 will be counted as part of your overall 2018 gift.  We will mail out our annual giving statements by January 27, 2018. Again, no matter when you give, THANK YOU! No matter when you give, thank you for your generous support to continue Jesus mission to those here in York, across PA and around the world. For more instructions on giving: www.stillnaz.com/give  .

  

SAVE THE DATE: JANUARY 27

On Sunday morning during our worship services, we will present the highlights of what God has done in the past year and look ahead to where He is leading us as a church. And then at 6PM, we will gather again to hear stories from various ministries and install our newly elected board members during our "2018 Commissioning Service."

 

BLESSING FROM ADVENT WEEK 3

May we be a rejoicing people.  May our hearts always make room for the Lord of the universe who was born as a joy, and who remains a joy and brings joy.  No matter what we face we know He is with us, and may His joy in us bring joy to the world around us.  May His grace and His peace come through our expressions of joy even in our darkest time?  Go in the most incredible joy!  Joy in the Lord!
