In celebration of both Epiphany and the beginning of a new year, we continue a tradition at Living Hope: Epiphany Stars. During communion on January 5, when you come forward to receive the bread and juice, you will also be offered an Epiphany Star. These are simple paper stars with words of spiritual disciplines on them to use as a guide for the coming year. The invitation to you will be to use that word as a way to orient yourself towards God for the coming year, giving you a potential guiding light for every day of 2020.
The Sunday School students and their teachers made arrangements to sponsor a family this Christmas through Christmas Clearing Council. Through the generosity of groups and individuals from Living Hope and Dickson Hollow, over $800 worth of gifts were donated to the family of seven. The students wrapped gifts and decorated cookies to take to the family and those, in addition to fruit, a Pick ‘n Save gift card and a beautiful poinsettia plant donated by the Deacons, were delivered on December 12. Thank you to all who helped to make this family’s Christmas a little brighter this year.
On 9-22-15, several of our Collaboration Planning Group, along with potential residents of Dickson Hollow, were able to participate in a ‘dusty shoe’ tour of the new facility. Here are just a few pictures. Thank you to Keith P. for the great photos!
