Advent News This Week
January 19, 2020
2nd Sunday after Epiphany
"Every Picture Can Tell God's Story"
They mark the moments, days, years, and decades of our lives. They commemorate special occasions and everyday events. They record the beauty of the world, as well as things that are not so beautiful. They express the gamut of human emotion. They help us to remember our history as well as the history of those who came
before. "They" are photographs. The six sessions of this new study are designed to open your eyes to new ways in which you can be a witness of Jesus using your own personal photographs and experiences.
The first session is scheduled for January 14 at 10:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. All women of any age are welcome.

The 2020 Flower Chart is posted above the Usher Stand in the Narthex. This year, the flower price has been raised to $22.00 from the florist. Please continue to purchase these flowers that decorate the Altar.
LOMO Camp Sunday
Plan to join us on January 26 at both services for CAMP SUNDAY. Jenny Franz from LOMO will be here as our worship leader and to lead us in a contemporary service with a "camp theme". Wear your flannel!
Souper Bowl of Caring
Advent's teaming up with
Lutheran Social Services of Central Ohio
to help put a tackle on hunger!
In any given week, 207,700 different Ohioans receive emergency food assistance just to get by. All donations of items and monies collected from this outreach go directly to Lutheran Social Services of Central Ohio Food Pantries.
How to Participate
During the entire month of January and February 2 (Super/Souper Bowl Sunday) whatever side of the sanctuary you sit on determines which team you are on.
You'll either be a Lightning Lutheran or a Pugnacious Preacher!
(please sit on the same side all month because if you switch that would be cheating and we might not notice but God will :-)
For every food item you donate, your team will get one point.
For every dollar you donate your team will get four (4) points.
This is because the LSS can stretch your $1 donation to $4 of buying power!
Each week Pastor Aaron will give you updates on the score via our weekly E-Herald.
For the past three years the Pugnacious Preachers have given much and tried hard, but the Lightning Lutheran's tradition of winning has just been too much. the Preachers made it tough in 2017, but the Lightning Lutherans were quick and right when it came to the half-time game.
On February 2, the Parish Life team is asking you to bring "tailgate foods" for the First Sunday Fellowship between the services. More information to come. See Susan Phillips for more information.
January 26, 2020
We are putting together a list of members who are willing to administer first aid when the need arises. Please prayerfully consider this opportunity minister.

For the next two Sundays or as supplies last, we will have available the free and new window clings to be used for your cars to "advertise" Advent.
Simply look for the AdventELC 2020 Calendar pens in the Narthex baskets and you will also find these window clings.
