NEWS AND NOTES

Daily Advent Devotions

For your personal and family devotions as we prepare for the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. We hear often these days that we are living through unprecedented times. Our experience of time has been altered in recent months. Our routines and rhythms, milestones and rituals, are upended. As we enter the liturgical season of Advent, when we are to eagerly prepare for the birth of Jesus Christ and also anticipate his return, how will we mark this time? What will we do to be good stewards of our time? We will explore being aware of God’s presence in the moment even as we anticipate Jesus’ incarnation. These devotions will seek to help us recognize God’s kairos time within and working through our challenging chronos time. Written by Outlook editor Jill Duffield, each week includes a reflection, daily Scripture readings, suggestions for living out the Bible and a short prayer for each day.  We hope these devotions enhance your Advent preparations as you get ready for the coming of Jesus Christ.

 

IN-PERSON WORSHIP 4PM DECEMBER 24

We rejoice to announce that at their October 28 Meeting, Session approved an in-person worship service to close out 2020 (assuming California stays open):

Christmas Eve, December 24, 4pm in the south parking lot.

 

Communion will be celebrated

with individually wrapped elements.

 

Vitally aware of your safety, we will be diligent to provide as safe an outdoor experience as humanly possible and seek your help. It is hard, especially after time apart, but to honor every child of God, we have these common protocols if you are healthy and feel comfortable to come:

  • Everyone RSVP so we can plan – for worship and for childcare
  • Everyone wears masks before, during, and after worship – “from car to car” – the Palisades logo mask is nice;
    • Name tags (recognition can be challenging behind masks, sunglasses and hats!)
  • Maintain a 6 foot distance
  • Use the provided wipes touching handrails, door handles, and faucets
  • Use provided sanitizer often
  • Sit at benches with blue tape, family units sit together
  • Attendance is taken, confirm your contact information
  • IF YOU TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID19, LET US KNOW IMMEDIATELY
  • Inclement weather is determined 2 hours ahead. Cancellation notification via FB and email
  • We highly recommend you dress warmly and bring a blanket to cover the seat and back of the weathered bench.
