Blue Christmas (when Christmas hurts) - December 19th @ 7 PM

All are welcome to worship with us Thursday evening, especially those who find the holidays to be particularly hard to endure. We recognize the holidays can sometimes be painful.. we welcome you to worship the coming of our Savior, the one who brings life out of death, our one and only hope. *Please note that if you cannot make this service there is another local opportunity. Cornell's ecumenical Candlelight Advent & Christmas Lessons & Carols service will be on Wed Dec. 11th (6:30 - 7:30pm in Allee Chapel). This service names the themes named in the Blue Christmas; themes of: struggle, sadness, and uncertainty--always meeting people in the vulnerability to offer God's love and hope which came to us in the weakness and vulnerability of a new born babe.

Ongoing Opportunities

Care Packages

Seeds of Faith has traditionally sent holiday care packages to our military men and women, as well as our college students. If your family has a college student or someone in the military, please make sure the Seeds office has their current address. Also... we are looking for the following items to be donated for the packages: gum, mints, treats, post-its, pens/pencils/erasers, teas/hot chocolate/instant coffee, small coloring books.

Sign up to provide a weekly snack of cheese and crackers for Southeast Linn Community Center's After School Program!

For winter our special collection will be for WARM clothes! Particularly gloves and socks, but all warm items are welcome. We are also doing a special drive for laundry detergent, diapers, and feminine products.

Taking Down Hunger!

All food donations between now and Jan. 4th will be taken to Lisbon High School as they battle it out with Mount Vernon to see who can raise the most food! (We support both sides, but our address is Lisbon.. it's all in good fun and for a good cause!) This is put on by Food for Thought and SELCC and the food will go to the SELCC food pantry and pop-up pantries. Join us at 4 PM Jan 4th at Mount Vernon High School to cheer on our wrestlers and see which school raised more food!
