God calls us to be disciples of Jesus, reaching out in service and fellowship
to share the love of Christ.
Romans 15:8; Acts 20:35; 1 Chronicles 29: 14-16
If we take a breath and stop there, then we are dead. Life is not giving or taking but give-and take. Breathing in and not stopping but breathing out, there is life. The same give-and take can be found wherever there is life. (David Stendle-Rast) Everything is given to us: life, redeemed life and giving life. God gives us everything generously and forgives sincerely in order to increase thanksgiving to God. In response to the love of God we increase thanksgiving to God by means of our giving to those in need and forgiving those who have offended us. In short, genuine Christian life involves giving, forgiving and thanksgiving in order to live life abundantly and fully. Thanks be to God for this privilege.

All Church Advent Study
Give your family a gift this Christmas -- take time out of the hustle and bustle of activities to join with others centering on the reason for the season. Learn how the story of Joseph provides the perfect example of humbly obeying God, even when we don’t understand, and faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides.
Join us for a four-week book study using Adam Hamilton’s “Faithful: Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph”. New this year: Sunday study groups for children and youth! Adults have the option of the Sunday Study group or the Wednesday Study group. For details or to register click the Information/Registration button.

For over 35 years, the annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service has been a Westford tradition. The community event, which is at St. Catherine’s Church this year, includes prayer, music, readings and refreshment. Attendees are asked to bring canned or paper goods to donate to the Westford Food Pantry. All are welcome!
Habitat for Humanity Build Days
Following are the upcoming dates for build days at the 2nd Humanity house in Juniper Hill. These are not specifically Interfaith Build Days but volunteers are welcomed and very much appreciated:
- Friday, 11/23 (day after Thanksgiving)
- Saturday, 11/24
November 18 - December 2
It's that time of year when you will see our Giving Tree in the back of the sanctuary. This tree is adorned with wish tags that represent the desires and wishes of local families and children who are having difficulties. Your donations show them the love of Christ that is working within our community. Please remember to bring your gifts to church, unwrapped with the tag on it by Sunday, December 2, to be blessed during service. Thank you for your commitment to this Ministry. Questions, contact Cathy Rowden.
Saturday, December 1
