Donations from the Reformed Church of Syracuse and other area partner churches have been collected and received by those who need them. Here is an update from Deacon Chuck Kinne:
I have an exciting update to our Joy of Sox mission campaign. Donated items are being used to support In My Fathers Kitchen (IMFK) and their mission of supporting the homeless community in Syracuse. With the extremely generous support of so many individuals and various groups, we have made a huge impact. We have been blessed to take over 400 pairs of socks as well as winter hats and gloves to IMFK. These items will now be available to help the homeless, many of whom are outside during our long hard winters. On behalf of the Deacons here at the Reformed Church, I thank each and everyone of you for your generous support. Blessings to you in this Christmas season.

The Advent season is traditionally a time of watching and waiting for our Savior to come. As we watch and wait, we are preparing to meet Him. God became flesh so that we could see Him face to face and have a relationship with Him, so that we could commune with Him. This Advent, we will explore how the Sermon on the Mount teaches us to prepare for communion with Christ, then conclude our Advent preparation by taking communion together on Christmas Eve morning.
