SAXTONS RIVER -- Christ’s Church will be celebrating the Second Sunday in Advent on Dec. 8 by lighting the Second Advent candle, the Candle of Peace.

The Rev. Roger Daly will continue with the "Journey to the Manager." The scripture readings will be from Psalm 42:1-3 and John 7:37-39 and will form the basis for his meditation, "A Thirst or an Itch?"

The service will also welcome Robbie Wierzbicki from Vermont Family Services who will speak about the work Family Services provides and how they might best be supported. The Missions Committee has sponsored several "Partners in Missions" Sunday visits which have given the congregation a better understanding of the services various local community agencies offer and the opportunities there are for support through materials and volunteering.

Blue Door Community Soup and Bread Suppers continue on Wednesday evenings from 5:30 to 7. There is no charge for these suppers, however any donations given are going to support Our Place. All are invited to come and enjoy a good supper while visiting with neighbors and friends.

Christ’s Church is handicapped accessible and all are welcome. Worship service begins at 10 a.m. and is followed by an opportunity for coffee and conversation. For further information, call 802-869-2340 and leave a message.
