December 2018

At The Commons we give our selves permission over December to step our of our regular routine and try to be present in the moment for the Advent Season.

Here is where and when we will be gathering over the next month:

  • Advent Week 1: HOPE
    3pm – Sun. Dec. 2nd
    – For the first week in advent we will be joining with St. John’s Lutheran Church (the folks who own the building we meet in) for a gathering that is all about Hope & Unity. There will be lots of music and singing with snacks happening afterwards. We have discovered that St. John’s has some amazing German Grandmas who love to bake up a storm of delicious cookies and treats.¬† Location: Upstairs in 104 Hughson St. N.
  • Advent Week 2: PEACE
    4:30pm – Sun. Dec. 9th
    – Stories, Songs and Practical Activities of Peace. If you have an instrument bring it to join in on the Christmas Carol Jamboree.
    Location: Downstairs in 104 Hughson St. N. (enter off Wilson St.)
  • Welcome Inn Community Christmas Party.
    6pm-8pm Fri Dec 14th – We will be the house band leading Christmas Carols for our friends at this North End community center. Feel free to join us.
    Location: 40 Wood St E
  • Advent Week 3: JOY
    4:30pm – Sun. Dec. 16th – Share some joy through Aux Chords & Christmas Cards. If you have a song that brings you joy over the holidays feel free to share it with the group while we take time to write out some Christmas cards together. If you have an instrument bring it to join in on the Christmas Carol Jamboree.
    Location: Downstairs in 104 Hughson St. N. (enter off Wilson St.)
  • Advent Week 4: LOVE
    4:30pm – Sun. Dec. 23rd – Part of showing love is giving space for the hard feelings and hard times. Christmas isn’t all about candy canes and presents, and not all of us have great associations with the holidays. This week we will be giving room for people’s lament and grief around the holidays.

  • Potluck Supper
    4:30pm – Sun Dec 30th – Everyone is welcome (even if church isn’t your thing). This¬† is just a community meal for everyone to get together before the new year to share some food, catch up with old friends, make some new friends, and maybe play a little foosball or chess.
