Sharing HOPE Night, Sunday, December 3, from 4 – 5:30 PM

A NEW Event celebrating the first Sunday in Advent and the New Christian Year by sharing HOPE serving others and warm fellowship. We will begin with stations where we can create, assemble or wrap items to benefit those around Richmond. Activities will include making dog toys, assembling ornaments for retirement home residents, creating cards for the homebound, wrapping socks for the homeless, building boxes to take home as reminder to bring foods for Shearbourne, tying & stuffing fleece pillows for kids. We will be able to take an Advent Prayer Walk through the halls. Around 5 PM we will gather to share a wassail punch and winter soup & warm bread.

The event will close by gobbling our own decorated cookies. $3 per person/$10 per family. Contact Leila Denton


In preparation for the event, we are asking for donations to help us share:

  • Socks
  • Left over Halloween candy
  • Tennis balls
  • Pinecones
  • Large pieces of fleece
  • Fiber fill for pillows

All of the groups began to understand how much is lost in each of these dire situations. This time spent learning about different ways to #LoveJusticeDoMercy gave us a new perspective on what we can do in our community.

Teens, nowadays! It’s not a new phenomenon that adults are befuddled by the choices teens make.
