Advent Readings and Decorating the Church: Today is
the 1st Sunday of Advent, as we anticipate the arrival of Jesus Christ on Dec. 25. Advent candles will be lit oneby-one and a passage read from Scripture by a pair of church members each of the next four Sundays. Also, today we begin decorating the sanctuary for Christmas. Feel free to help out after the service, if you can. We will place garland on the railings, wreaths on the walls, and set up the Nativity scene on the altar. Thank you!
NOTICE -Parking Lot Salting Schedule: Info for those who come to church during the week: This winter, the parking lot will be salted on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays only. If you come to church to volunteer for some reason or to attend meetings, keep in mind this schedule during weeks we have inclement weather as you may wish to plan accordingly and come on an ice-free day.
Cider & Donuts at Fellowship: We invite everyone to enjoy these two Fall favorites once again this week in the Mayflower Room after the worship service. The usual hot beverages will be served, too -coffee and tea.
Volunteers Needed to Go Through Rooms:We're almost done with the 1st floor, with only the room behind the choir loft left to be done. We're still looking for help going through the basement and garage. A sign-up sheet is on the card table in the sanctuary where you can add your name.
Downriver for Veterans & Pull Tabs/Lids: We're still collecting food, personal items, new clothing, and pillows for Downriver for Veterans in Wyandotte. Place your items in a plastic bag and leave in the bin or the basket behind the pews. Any and all donations are deeply appreciated by the volunteers at DFV! We're also collecting aluminum pull tabs and can lids for Ronald McDonald House which can be left in the container just in-side the tower entrance door.
Altar Flowers: If you'd like to dedicate flowers in memory of, or in honor of, loved ones or people in the church; or to recognize special occasions like an anniversary, there are two Sundays open in December. Just call the office (313-271-8552) or send an email (email@example.com) with the Sunday when you'd like flowers for the altar and details of your dedication. The cost is $15, payable to the church, which can be placed in the offering plate on Sunday or dropped off/mailed to the church. Payment should be made in

Position Opening - CLERK: The church has an opening for Clerk in 2021, taking the place of Diana Schilbe who has moved into the role of Treasurer, another Officer position.

Kroger Community Rewards: It’s been 22 years since our church became a recipient of 5% back on all purchases except gas, alcohol and prescription drugs made online or in the store. I hope to renew your interest in this free money that goes directly to our church each quarter. If you use a Kroger Plus Shopper’s Card (which we all do in order to get discounts) please register it online if you haven’t done so. ANYONE can register our church as a recipi-ent, don’t need to be a member. Invite your friends and family to register us. All your points for gas, coupons and everything else remains the same. Nothing special to punch in when checking out at the store. To be sure that our church is receiving the 5% back from your pur-chase, look at the bottom of your receipt and it will display Dearborn Congregational Church.
Go online to Kroger Community Rewards and follow the instructions to register. No codes are needed – just type in the name of our church and it will come up. When we first began the program we were receiving approximately $500 a year and other than registering once, there’s nothing more to do. Contact me if you have questions. – Diana Schilbe
Prayer List Update: We've updated the prayer requests listed in our Sunday bulletin. If someone's name has been removed and they are still in need of our prayers, please contact the church office at 313-271-8552 to have their name added back on the list. To keep our list current, we will date when the prayer request is received and after a month, unless it is renewed, it will be removed.
Downriver for Veterans & Pull Tab/Lid Donations: We are collecting non-perishable food items for Downriver for Veter-ans located on Fort Street in Wyandotte. Only in its second year, this organization needs on-going support to assist local resource-limited veterans with food and other needs. Some veterans are on disability income and don’t have enough to pay their bills and buy groceries. You can place your donations in the Totes of Love bin in the back of the Sanctuary. Please check the expiration date to make sure items have not expired. Thank You!
Attention Amazon Shoppers: If you currently have an Amazon account (regular or Prime) your purchases can now earn our church .5%. All you need do is sign into Amazon Smile and log in just as if you were on your regular Amazon account, designate our church as your charity and shop. Please share our Charity with friends and family – anyone who has an Amazon account can donate to us. See Diana Schilbe if you have questions.
