Event Information

Christmas Greetings!

Think back to when you were a child at Christmastime. Do you remember getting that special gift, that certain something that brought you incredible joy? At Christmastime, many children, especially those in affluent countries like ours, look forward to getting a special gift. For some, it might be a doll, a toy firetruck, perhaps a set of blocks. Some younger children seem happier to play with the empty boxes!

On Saturday, December 2, your ABCOFLASH family will be getting together to share memories, hear from one another, and set our hearts for the season to celebrate the greatest gift we’ve ever received: the gift of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

If you came to the event last year, you no doubt remember just how special our annual Advent celebration was. Many opted to exchange gifts from church to church. Perhaps your church will want to give a gift card for a neighboring church pastor. Or, your church might want to organize a youth clean-up project. Some choirs might want to bless another congregation with the gift of a song…the ideas are limited only by your imagination. Last year, it wasn’t the gifts themselves that was so inspiring; it was the act of giving. Or just observe and be blessed!

We are also continuing the opportunity to give to children in need in Southern California and Tijuana. You do not have to attend this event to participate in this giving opportunity. Click here to make a donation!

As we get older, we are less like the children that we used to be. Instead of being excited to receive a gift, our joy is in the act of giving. So, come, share the joy, and give us your presence. We’d love to see you! Personally, I can’t wait to get to know our ABCOFLASH family better. Also, Dr. Chetti will not be able to join us (It was previously said he was). Additionally, there will be the usual Christmas fare: good food, carols, fun, and great fellowship.

Most of all, we will get an early start to the Christmas season, a chance to more fully prepare our hearts to celebrate the greatest gift in all human-kind: the gift of Jesus Christ, God’s own son.

If you’d like to know more, or need help with registration, please feel free to call the Regional Resource Center at 818.839.6070. Please register no later than November 27th.

We hope to see you there!

In His Service (and Yours),

Rev. Andy Quient

Acting Executive Minister
