Seeking leaders for Advent Morning and Evening Prayer. Volunteers are still needed to lead Morning Prayer on Tuesdays or Fridays or Evening Prayer on Wednesdays or Fridays. Each of these short services, held Monday – Friday at 9am and 7pm in Moore Memorial Chapel, offers a time of quiet prayer and a disciplined way to offer God the gift of our time and attention during this busy season. Please use the signup sheet on the narthex table or contact Deacon Helen to volunteer.

Give the Gift of Education with our ShopRite cards. Available in the narthex following all services in denominations of $20., $50., and $100, the cards never expire and can be used up to the last penny. The 5% profit we receive on the sale of these cards helps ensure the continued education of Redemption School's youth.

IOT sales of Fair Trade Gift Items and Advent Calendars help pay faculty salaries at Redemption School. Please find our team members in the narthex following all services this weekend and next. Calendars are available for $4.50 each; most gift items are being sold at our cost. Thank you for your support.

Please bring in new 2018 calendars, unused Christmas cards and unused Greeting cards for us to package for the Evergreens Nursing Home in Moorestown. Please package cards in separate rubberbands.
