Hosting Family Promise


Each Sunday, we are reminded as we leave our worship together to “go in peace to love and serve our Lord.” Good news. The Church of the Advent Host Week for Family Promise is scheduled for January 3-10, 2016 at the Kennett Friends Meeting working along with St. Patrick’s Church here in Kennett Square. What a wonderful way to fulfill this message. One of the best lessons we can teach our children, as well as ourselves, is the gift of giving to someone who needs our help. At this precious time of giving, we are asking our Advent families to add one more item to their family festivity shopping list: Gift Cards from stores like Costco, Giant, Walmart and such to be used to fulfill last minute needs for this Host Week. Monetary gifts (Payable to: Church of the Advent) would be most preferred. It doesn’t take much to make a big impact. Those who wish can drop Gift Cards (as well as cash/check gifts) off at the Church Office with a note to “Advent Family Promise Supplies/Food”. Our Volunteers will use these cards to pick up food and supplies to host these families. “Thanks be to God!”
