Advent is the church season before Christmas. In a world full of sorrow, we turn our hearts toward hope. This year, our Advent worship will be in person, as well as streamed live on our Facebook page! Join us each Wednesday evening in Advent (Nov 30 & Dec 7, 14 & 21) at 7:15 pm for Holden Evening Prayer, a 15 minute hopeful, gentle service of song and prayer.
Care and Serve
Giving Tree – Make a child’s Christmas joyful. POP members and friends are invited to purchase a special gift for selected students from Brown Station Elementary School. Use this link to choose your gift. Gifts should be wrapped with a sticky note with the gift number and description. Please bring your gift to POP no later than Sunday, December 18th. For more info or if you’d like to help with the project please contact Jennifer Maloney.
Help spread holiday cheer by purchasing gifts for residents at the Village at Rockville (formerly the National Lutheran Home) who could use something special at Christmas. Staff at the Village have asked for donations of throw blankets to warm the residents in the chilly months as well as wall calendars.
Participate in the Gifts of Hope program – These gifts support the mission and programs of area Lutheran social ministry organizations, camps, college or seminary, and our Synod’s companion synods abroad. Your Gifts of Hope purchases will bring hope to others while you honor those on your gift list. Gifts of Hope will be available at church after worship and online this year.
