My dear sisters and brothers in ministry,
We are again coming up to a busy time of year in the life of the church:  Advent and Christmas. 


I offer to those who preach or lead worship – in whatever community you serve – to an Advent worship service on Thursday, December 7th, at 11:00 am at the Bainbridge Presbyterian Church.  With scripture, prayer, song, and the lighting of Advent candles, we will celebrate the Incarnation.  There is nothing required of you for this service.  You will not be asked to lead anything.  You are invited to simply participate in the liturgy as you wish.
After the service, you are invited to stay for fellowship at lunch (cost $7.00 each).  If you would, though, please RSVP to me (revlisaheckman(at) or to Christine Rogalski (pmc(at) if you will be staying for lunch.


I encourage you, my colleagues in ministry, to carve out the time in the midst of Advent to feed your own soul in communion with others.
Grace and Peace.
