On the first Sunday of Advent, everyone will be making Advent wreaths to bring home and use. Our Table Talks will include the readings done in church and also in Sunday School, and each week as we light the candles there will be questions that you can use at home to discuss the meaning of the candles and how we can prepare ourselves to welcome the Lord.

2016 Missions Trip Prayer Suggestions

Things to pray for:

  • Safety on the worksite
  • For the YMO students, staff, and residents of the house(s) to discover or strengthen their relationship with God
  • That the community would be able to see God’s presence in the work of the YMO students
  • That the YMO students’ relationships with God would continue throughout their lives and not wear off after the trip
  • That our work has a positive impact on the community and the residents of the house(s)
  • That the parishioners of St. Paul’s and St. James will feel connected to what we are doing on the mission trip, especially for the prayer chain to be connected to the mission trip.
