Spirit of Generous Giving
Last Week our offering totaled $1,159.76! Thank you again for your generosity.
There have been some questions about where checks should be made out to since our tithe envelopes are provided by PMC. Checks can be made out to Andrews University, One Place or PMC and then placed in an envelope and marked for One Place on the envelope. The money will make it to One Place through PMC’s treasury department. Every dollar received directly impacts the ministries of One Place.
If you would like to donate to the One Place, please visit our online donation center website. To donate to a specific ministry, contact Japhet.
Thank you for your financial support.
One Place Advisory Meeting
Advisory meetings will be moving to Tuesdays beginning next week, December 11 at 6:30pm. We will still be in Campus Ministries. Please join us for discussions about how One Place will continue to grow.
Because of the increase in families attending each week at One Place, the pastoral team is sending out an all call to anyone reading this newsletter. We are wondering:
Is there is a need for the Sabbath School options to include an Elementary class (grades 2-5) for one of the remaining gaps (between Preschool and Middle School) during the 10:00am service?
If so, would you be willing to support it by sending your children?
Would you be interested in volunteering to assist in the classroom (teaching, games, etc.)?
If you enjoy having your children with you during the service, would you be willing to send your kids to Sabbath School while you attend one of the adult SS yourself during 1st service (this you'd still being able to share this worship experience with your kids by attending 2nd service)?
If you would like to help out by answering these questions and become a part of the conversation already in progress, please contact Ray Dixon with your answers/concerns/questions. Or speak to any of the pastoral team on Sabbath mornings in Buller Hall.
Toys for Tots Christmas Drive
The One Place High School Sabbath School group, in conjunction with Toys for Tots, is asking for your assistance between now and December 8 to collect new and unwrapped toys for our community this Christmas season.
Our High School teens will be rocking snow goggles this Sabbath to mark themselves as representatives of children who would otherwise go without gifts this holiday season. While they themselves may go home to a hearty bounty under the Christmas tree this year, they are collecting for someone who won't.
If you happen to come bearing gifts between 9:45-11:15am, please swing into our Sabbath School class (BUL 208) where the High School group will be meeting to say "hello" and to drop off your generous donations. Our community and the High School group thanks you in advance for making this a very merry Christmas.
