The eSojourner 

Chalice Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

We continue our Thanksgiving food drive the next two Sundays. Bring a frozen turkey or non-perishable item for the local food bank.

Questions? Contact Trista Sobeck.  

This Sunday is also Peanut Butter Sunday. Emergency Food Boxes continue to be needed by Chandler Christian Community Center. 

We'll eat Thanksgiving dinner together on Sunday, November 22. If you're wondering what you can bring, ask Carol Grisez, She can answer any other questions as well. 
Advent is coming! We'll have full details to share by next week, but here are some things you should note as Advent approaches:
  • We'll have fun, family-friendly after worship activities on each Sunday of Advent: November 29, December 6, December 13, and December 20.
  • Each household is invited to bring an ornament in purple, white, or silver for the tree on the first Sunday in Advent, November 29. We'll add to our collection with your offerings!
  • A grief workshop will be offered on Thursday, December 3rd at 7 p.m.
  • Enjoy a Parents' Morning Out on Saturday, December 5, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Kids of all ages are welcome; youth 6th grade and up will be helpers for the most part. If you'd like to send your kid, you should tell us. If you'd like to help provide parents with a morning out by helping with kids or helping with lunch for kids, you should tell us that, too!
If you're already doing holiday shopping, consider supporting Chalice in a few ways. 

First, if you're shopping online, do so using this link. You'll be able to access many online retailers, including Amazon, and at least 2.5% of the proceeds come back to Chalice. 

 We'll also be selling gift cards again this year. We'll have paper copies on Sunday or you can print your own. Just return them to Gary Emanuel by Sunday, November 29. 
East Valley Youth Group meets tomorrow night at First Christian Church of Mesa, 805 N. Country Club Drive.

We'll be there from 6-8 p.m. for dinner and a service project.
