Sunday, November 28:  Advent I ~ Hope

It is Advent, Jesus is coming, be alert.  In times of joy and abundance, we are ready.  In the midst of difficulty and danger, we are ready. In times of uncertainty and fear, we are ready. In times of apathy and despair, we are ready. With anticipation and with hope, we look for God’s long-promised one.  We will not be disappointed. We will not be disheartened.  Jesus is coming and we are ready.

(David Sparks, Summerland) B. C.

We are collecting mitts, hats, scarves, socks, etc. for the Salvation Army. They welcome items for all ages with a particular need for heavier weight men’s gloves.  A box is in the narthex. Closing date for donations is Sun Dec 5th.




Turkey Drive


We’re requesting monetary donations to help the Essex Food Bank and the Salvation Army offset the costs of their Christmas food baskets. If you choose to donate there are several ways you can do so – by marking Turkey on your givings envelope, use the envelopes provided by the collection plate, do an etransfer or drop a payment at the church office. Closing date is Sun Dec 5th.






for your continuing support of Essex United.   We rely on the contributions to cover ministry costs, and our bills.  At this time, we are still facing a prolonged closure, and this makes it more important, if you are able, to give faithfully and regularly to the church.
