Join us for one or all of our
Advent Listening Sessions
St. Alban’s has four Advent Listening Sessions planned. We will meet at the church and all are welcome! Come to one or to all of the sessions.
· Tuesday, December 5 at 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
· Thursday, December 7 at 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

You may comment publicly or anonymously (on a form we will provide).
Purpose: To grow God’s Kingdom in our place, St. Alban’s must reach-out to our neighbors, and reach-in to our members. Worship and Community are where we come together to be fed and formed for our mission! We must do all these things to the best of our abilities, and well.
In our Advent Listening Sessions, together we will listen to God’s call.
Help us think about, and clarify what in our community, neighborhood, and church needs to be allowed to die (remembering we believe in life after death - resurrection), be watered or fertilized (pruned), or be planted.
Our discussions will be facilitated by Edwin Adams, recorded, and welcome to all. Vestry members will join us, and your comment may be public or confidential. Mark your calendars. Start praying, and dreaming now!

St. Alban's Advent / Christmas Project for this year is the "Spread the Love" Peanut Butter Drive.
Why Peanut Butter?
Peanut butter is fun and nutritious! Peanut butter is an excellent source of protein and serves as a great substitution or alternative to meat products because it is much less expensive, it is filling, and it contains fiber. Finally, peanut butter is jam-packed with nutrients like phosphorus, potassium, zinc, folate, and the antioxidant vitamin E and is easy to keep and store. Peanut butter is a popular food bank item and is always in high demand!
We will collect jars of peanut butter - any size or brand - from Advent 2017 - Epiphany 2018 and all our collections will go to the Foodbank of NELA. Please be generous and help us "Spread the Love!"
