CONNECT // GOING AWAY PARTY FOR THE BURNETTS
This Sunday, everyone is invited to say thank you and goodbye to the Burnett family at a gathering at Mike and Sue Burnett’s house (715 Dogwood Lane) following Sunday services from 1:00-5:00 pm. This will be a great time for our church family to come together to wish the Burnetts well as they take this exciting next step in their lives towards Flourish! Please plan to drop in for awhile, and to share notes of thanks and encouragement for them. If you are coming and are able, bringing a snack or dessert to share would be lovely!
ACT // CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR CHILDREN AT GERMANTOWN ELEMENTARY
Please consider sponsoring a child or family for Christmas this season! If you are interested in purchasing gifts for children in our school community, please go to www.cityofpeace.info and sign up! There are 56 children from Germantown who are a part of the City of Peace initiative, and we would love for our church to lead the way in helping each one of them to have a joyous and gift-filled holiday! This is a great way for us to love the families in our community, so please, please, please sign up today!
ACT // CITY OF PEACE INITIATIVE
This holiday season, several churches in our city, including Revolution!, are partnering together to make a difference. The City of Peace initiative invites members of multiple congregations, as well as others in our community, to share service opportunities, sign up to volunteer, and give back to our neighbors this Christmas. To learn more, check out www.cityofpeace.info today!
ACT // YEAR-END GENEROSITY & MATCHING FUND
Revolution has been offered a matching fund for year-end gifts this year, and it’s incredible! More information will be coming in the days ahead, but at present, Revolution has already received more than $25,000 in matching funds to help us end our financial year in an incredible position as we move into 2019. As you help us match that gift, your generosity is an essential part of ensuring that the ministry, service, and action of our church continues as we seek to see God’s Kingdom come here in the city of Annapolis. We expect 2019 to be an incredible year in the life of our church, as we finalize Kenny’s transition into the lead pastor role, continue to multiply our Groups, deepen the roots our Sunday worship services, build partnerships with the other churches of our city, and set out to give back to our community in some new and incredible ways. If you would like to be a part of this year-end giving event, please check out our Giving portal by clicking the link here, or at the bottom of this page. Thank you for your generous support, as well as your participation in the ministry of Revolution!
CONNECT // REVOLUTION MOMS GROUP
Our MOMS group at Revolution meets every second Wednesday of the month. The next meeting is on December 12th from 9:30 until 11 at the home of Cathy Miller (500 Wilson Road, Annapolis, MD 21401). The group will be discussing Jen Hatmaker’s podcast For the Love episode Dec. 11, 2017 so listen ahead of time! Bring a brunch item to share; childcare provided.
ACT // SUPPLYING A LOCAL FOOD PANTRY
A local food pantry has opened in the Harbor House community, and they have a need for paper grocery bags! Bags are often available for donation at local grocery stores, which is where you come in: the next time you go to the store, please take a moment to ask Customer Service if they have bags they would be willing to donate. You can drop off the bags on Sunday mornings at the Welcome + Info table, or you can give them directly to Edward Giard, who will be acting as our point person with this project. Lastly, this is an ongoing need, so even if you can’t help this week, there will be more opportunities to give as we move forward with this exciting and important initiative!
