When you shop using smile.amazon.com you can either choose Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church as the organization you would like to support or plug smile.amazon.com/ch/23-1578712 into your browser and Amazon donates .5% of your purchases to Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church.
BRAILLE EDITION…Please note that a Braille edition of the ELW is available to use for worship. Please notify the church office if you know someone who needs it.
GO TAIL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN! Throughout Advent, there will be a tree on the bridge decorated with ornaments to purchase gifts from the ELCA Good Gifts program. You can buy school uniforms and supplies, food for a child’s backpack, vaccinations, bees, chicks, piglets, goats and much more for people in need! Take the ornament with you and either decorate your tree at home or give it to a friend or family member as a Christmas gift. Your gift reflects God’s love, making a difference in people’s lives around the world. Your donations will support long-term, sustainable solutions that ensure that these good gifts last for more than a couple days or weeks. Please make out your check to Christ Lutheran Church, with ELCA Good Gifts in the subject line, and place it in the offering plate. Envelopes and cards are available by the tree.
ADVENT STUDY, God Coming in the first chapter of Luke, will be led by Rev. Dr. Mark Oldenburg each Wednesday (Dec 12, 19) at 10:00 a.m. at the Gettysburg Outlets Food Court. Everyone is welcome!
