In last week's e-letter we announced that the theme for this September's Rally Day is abundance. We also began a series of weekly at-home family activities to prepare us all for Rally Day on Sunday, September 18. If you didn't catch our e-letter last week, join in!
Are you ready for week two's "Abundance Activity?" It's a little more involved, but also has more impact:
Count all the extra school supplies you have lying around your home, and consider donating them to children in need of school supplies through our School Supply Drive. Our collection box is next to the table at the back of the sanctuary, and we're accepting donations until August 20.
Here are some optional follow-up questions to talk about as a family: How can our extra things help other people? Are their lives still abundant, too, and if so, how?
Rally Day is Sunday, September 18. From 10-11am we're going to have a BIG celebration featuring a plethora of games, activities, and opportunities for children, youth, and adults that center on the theme of abundance. We invite you and your family to join us in worship at 9am or 11am and at the party in between to kick-off a new school year of community and ministry here at Advent.
