Season of Service
Christmas Day Lunch
For the fifth year in a row, we get to spread a little Christmas cheer by serving a Christmas meal to our homeless and elderly neighbors in South Dallas on Christmas Day. This year will be a little different in that our neighbors will not get to “sit and dine” but instead be required to “grab and go”.
All RPC participants will drive their own vehicles to the kitchen. Masks are required for the duration of serving.
The schedule for the day is:
– 10:30a Arrive at Cornerstone Kitchen
– 11a-1p Meal prep
– 1-2p Serve & Clean-up
Sign-up at: rpc.fm/cornerstone.
Cornerstone is located at:
2711 S Ervay
A detailed follow-up email will be sent on December 21 with any final logistics and a map for suggested parking. If you have questions before then, please email Brandi Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 214-808-3117.

Advent Season This Year is November 28 – December 25
Advent marks the beginning of the Christmas season and the Church year for most Western churches. The word “Advent” means “arrival” or “coming” in Latin and represents the approach of Christ’s birth and the awaiting of Christ’s second coming. It is comprised of the four Sundays before Christmas day, starting on the Sunday closest to November 30th and ending on Christmas.
For Christians, Advent is a time of reflection about the amazing gift God gave to us in the person of His Son who came to live among us on earth. It is also an opportunity to restore Jesus to His rightful place as the center of our holiday celebrations. The prevailing themes of the Advent season, and the symbolism behind activities churches and families share, are expectation and hope, preparation and peace, joy and sharing, and most of all, love.
These themes are represented in the candles of the Advent. Here’s one example of the representation of the candles, along with a Scripture reference: Each Sunday, marking a new week in Advent, a candle is lit (including candles from previous weeks) until we arrive at the white, center candle which stands for Christ.
Hope (Romans 15:12-13)
Love (John 3:16-17)
Joy (Luke 2:7-15)
Peace (Luke 3:4-6)
Christ (John 1:29 & John 3:1-8)
All Advent activities and traditions are grounded in the truth of Scripture, even though the symbolism and stories surrounding them have changed over time. The focus continues to be the great news that the Messiah was and is coming and how we live out our heartfelt longing for both.
