Prayer of the Day for the first Sunday of Advent: “Stir up your power, Lord Christ, and come.

Amen.
Springboro Christmas Parade Many thanks to all our people who helped with our parade unit at the Springboro Christmas parade. It was a great day and the rain held off until after the parade was over!!! Can you believe we have been in this parade for seventeen years.....every year in this century!
CPAM was with us for a full week and the place was full of activity. CPAM stands for Children’s Performing Arts of Miamisburg and they were working on the show “Winnie the Pooh”. Albrecht Hall was full of excitement every day and they gave three shows at the end of the week on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
A good piece of scripture Here is some scripture we would like to highlight this week: Luke 21:34....Be on guard so that your hearts are not weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of this life, and that day does not catch you unexpectedly, like a trap.”
