Table Talk About Mission Miracles:
The Gift That Keeps Giving
The 2020 Christmas Mission Project
November 29 through December 25
This mission project is designed to bring families and our church community closer together, while also learning more about the organizations we support locally, nationally, and internationally. Beginning Sunday, Nov. 22, devotional booklets and containers will be available in the Sanctuary, Souers Hall, and Church Office. Each day of Advent we will have the opportunity to learn more about a specific organization The Church at Litchfield Park supports, how our support makes a difference and is related to scripture. Each reflection is an opportunity to consider how God might be calling us to respond to the needs of others by exchanging consumerism for compassion by putting money in our containers.
Throughout Advent, our containers will serve as a visible reminder of the difference a few coins or dollars can make as we fill them. We invite everyone to bring their filled containers back to the Sanctuary, Souers Hall, or the church office anytime between Sunday, December 27 and Sunday, January 3. All of the monies collected will be divided equally among the organizations you learn about in the booklet.
November Food Drive
Thank you to all who donated food for the Thanksgiving Food Drive. Remember, that as we serve others, we serve a Mighty God!
We are looking forward to celebrating the birth of our Savior in unprecedented ways this year! The Church at Litchfield Park will be offering two drive-in Christmas Eve services in the dirt lot south of the church at 6:00 and 8:00 p.m., which will require a lot of help. Watch the weekly eNewsletter and announcements for more information related to registering, parking, and how you can get involved.

Thank you all so much for the sharing of your time, talent, and treasure during this difficult time. Your dedication and service has allowed the church to continue our missions, outreach, and services. Currently we are falling short on our 2021 pledge goal.
You have done very well in increasing the number of new pledges; but after 4 weeks of the 2021 campaign we are almost $95,000 behind the pledges received at this time in the 2020 campaign. Please prayerfully consider returning a pledge card as soon as possible.
