WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS CHRISTMAS
Women's Gift Exchange
Join us for this highly anticipated annual event. Each woman should bring an item to share for lunch, as well as 6 unwrapped gifts (all the same item, though patterns & colors can vary). We'll eat, then have shopping rounds where you get to choose 6 gifts to take home. It's a great time of fun and friendship (Last name A-J, please bring a sweet dish. Last name K-Z, please bring a savory dish).
For many of us, Christmas is a time of fun and celebration, punctuated by the exchange of gifts. For others, facing financial hardship this Christmas season, the holidays mean stress and disappointment. Affordable Christmas is a ministry of Sojourn East where we come together as a church to alleviate the financial burden of purchasing Christmas gifts that many families within a short drive of our church will experience this year.
Christmas Service Times
This year, because Christmas falls on Sunday, we are doing things a little differently. We will have two services on Saturday, December 24, as listed below, with childcare for Infants through Pre-K.
On Christmas Day, we have decided to cancel Sunday services so that everyone - especially our band, volunteers and staff - can be at home with family on Christmas morning.
- December 24 (Saturday): 3pm & 5pm
- December 25 (Sunday): No Services
