Evergreen on Mission. 
Every year at Evergreen Church, a Mission Partner is focused on during the Advent season. This year we are partnering with Bloom, a non-profit foster care organization in Fayetteville. We can best support Bloom this season by assisting with the annual Christmas Party for their foster children and their families. They will see Santa, receive Christmas gifts, and enjoy a catered meal.

On December 9, we will be taking a special love offering to cover the cost of dinner for the event. We also will be assembling 90 goodie bags for the children and their siblings during our potluck luncheon. If you would like to contribute to the goodie bags, please drop off small Christmas themed party favors that will fit in a small bag to the church office. For a list of party favor ideas, click here.   

The ages of the children follows: 
10 babies ages 0-1, 10 kids age 2, 24 kids ages 3-5, 19 kids ages 6-8, 15 kids ages 9-12, 9 kids ages 13-18.

Blue Christmas service

On Thursday, December 20 at 6:30 pm we are hosting a Blue Christmas worship service. In the midst of the wonder of Advent, many feel out of step with the joy and excitement of Christmas. Some have lost loved ones or face the holidays feeling blue with grief or depression. This special service is open to the community. So if you or someone you know is hurting, please invite them to this special service.

Advent devotional

In order to seek Christ in every aspect of our lives during Advent, we are proud to announce a church-wide devotional titled “Always Winter, Never Christmas”. Written as a reading companion for The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, the “Always Winter, Never Christmas” devotional aims to help you and your family rediscover the wonder of God’s redemptive plan through Christ. This timeless story provides the perfect backdrop for personal reflection and intergenerational worship during the holiday season. 

To best follow the group conversation, pick up a copy of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and begin reading as soon as possible. Copies will be available at church for $7, or you may purchase a copy wherever books are sold. There will be assigned chapters Monday through Saturday of each week and a devotional created by Corinne Roberts, our Children’s Director, for you to work through on Sundays. 

Download the “Always Winter Never Christmas Devotional here.

We hope you #RediscoverTheWonder of the season as you explore the imagination of Narnia and the glory of Aslan.
