The Faith Journey Continues...

 
Prayer is Grace

We cannot force God into a relationship. God comes to us on his own initiative, and no discipline, effort, or ascetic practice can make him come. All mystics stress with an impressive unanimity that prayer is “grace”— that is, a free gift from God, to which we can only respond with gratitude. But they hasten to add that this precious gift indeed is within our reach. In Jesus Christ, God has entered into our lives in the most intimate way, so that we could enter into his life through the Spirit.
Advent Study
God Came Near
Thurs, Nov 12
at 7:00 pm via Zoom

Adult Education team announces an Advent Study on Thursday nights at 7:00 pm via Zoom.  The meetings will be based on RightNow Media's video God Came Near by Max Lucado.  There will be a short discussion following the video.  Dates are Nov 12, 19, Dec 3, 10, 17 and Jan 7.

In the midst of the gloom of winter, the darkest and coldest of seasons, Christians still wait with great anticipation for the happiest season of all, Advent. Travel back in time and relive the coming of Christ to Earth, as He gives up His throne next to God the Father to enter this world as a baby born in a manger. Filmed at England's beautiful Blockley Church, join acclaimed author and pastor Max Lucado as he provides insights on the season of Advent.

Please scroll down in this email if you have not visited the RightNow Media collection for a link which will take you to the site.  Once there, you can explore the thousands of videos and resources available to you.

Thanksgiving Dinner Delivery
Thurs, Nov 26

In recent years, Kyong Hee Cho (Pastor Cho's wife) has organized a Thanksgiving Meal at Fairfield Grace, open to all.  Since we cannot gather this year on Thanksgiving Day, She will be putting together homemade Thanksgiving Dinner Boxes for anyone who would like to receive one.  These dinners will be delivered or they can be picked up from the church by 4:00 pm.

Let us know by Friday, Nov 20 if you, or any of your friends, would like a meal (delivery or pick up) by contacting the church office at 203-374-6528 or fairfieldgrace@sbcglobal.net

If anyone would like to contribute homemade baked goods, individually packaged, for this meal delivery, contact co-leader Lee Del Vecchio at 203-374-2130 or leedelvecchio@icloud.com by Friday, Nov 20.

God calls us to focus our lives on him rather than on ourselves. Whether in church, in the workplace, or at home, we want to see disciples of Jesus loving God and loving others.
