P.O.W.E.R—Joint program with P’nai Or, Sunday, December 3rd, 7:00 p.m., Common Room
Come for an evening of learning about poverty in Philadelphia, and what we can do to create a more equitable city. The format will be a jeopardy-like game. Snacks and fellowship! Sponsored by the P.O.W.E.R. teams of P’nai Or and Summit, all churches in the NW Cluster of P.O.W.E.R. will be invited. Summit has recently joined Philadelphians Organized to Witness, Empower and Rebuild and we are excited about this first program that we’re hosting.

Christmas Decorating & Potluck
Friday, December 15th at 6:30 p.m. will be a festive evening at the church as we gather to eat together and then hang the greens in the sanctuary. Children will decorate goody bags for the Whosoever Gospel Mission. Volunteers are needed to supervise the children while making the goody bags. Many hands make light work, so please come if you are able. Contact Debra Lockwood, dplockwood1953 or (267) 997-7714 to let her know what you can bring to the potluck. General questions, contact Deacon’s Moderator, Evan Meyer at email@example.com or 267-226-7094.
Goody Bag Treats Needed!
Every year we fill 50 goody-bags for the men of the Whosoever Gospel Mission who often do not have families nearby. We fill them with candy and baked goods, but the homemade treats are what make them special. Please bring in wrapped cookies, brownies or other Christmas treats on Sunday, December 17th.
Share Christmas Eve Goodies
The Session hosts the Christmas Eve Coffee Hour, and invites members of the congregation to bring in baked goods to share with our many visitors and friends. Thank you!
As in past years, we’ll be participating in the Angel Tree project through Germantown Avenue Crisis Ministry, where we buy (requested) gifts for children.Gifts range from gift cards to toys and games for specific ages.

The Angel Tree will be available on December 3rd.
