Hey TD!

Our annual Christmas celebration, “A TD Christmas,” is this Friday!

Please come to my home at 6:30 p.m.  We will be leaving shortly thereafter to go Christmas caroling at the Care Center. Afterwards, we’ll have a great time together celebrating Christ’s coming with fun, games, food, etc.

Sandra will be making her famous, once-a-year, irresistible chili dip.  Feel free to bring any Christmas treats, snacks, food to share!  You don’t have to, but if you’d like to, it would be welcomed!

Dress Christmas-y and we’ll see you on Friday! – Arthur

Come Celebrate Gwen’s 98th at SOS Saturday!

Hey TD!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! One of the best ways to give thanks is to give back.  Jesus calls His own dear children to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. Well, when I or one of my family members has a birthday, we celebrate!

TD’s dear friend at the care center, Gwen, is celebrating her 98th birthday tomorrow.  She is a gem – so with it, so polite, so thoughtful (crocheting little Hannah a vest), and so classy (as Angela puts it). Come join us as we try to surprise her and bless her on her big day! And if you want to bring her a little something, feel free!

Meet at my home at 9:30 a.m. as usual.  See you there! – Arthur

Hey TD, it’s time for another edition of Serve Our Society Saturday!  This Saturday, we will once again visit our friends at the So. Pasadena Care Center.  Our visits mean so much to them that we cannot NOT go!  They really look forward to our visits.

Meet at the Hsiehs’ at 9:30 a.m.  and get picked up by noon. There will be no lunch this week due to a meeting.

Make the time to do what’s good and right, TD, and you know God will bless you as you do!

TD Sat. – Come to SOS SUPER Saturday!

Hey TD!

We will not only have SOS Saturday this weekend, but we’re having an SOS SUPER Saturday!  What’s a SUPER Saturday?  It’s a double-header, two opportunities to keep cultivating the all-important Downward component of our Christian lives!

Care Center Ministry – 10 a.m. – noon.  Meet at my home at 9:30 a.m.

Come minister to the elderly at the So. Pasadena Care Center.  They are gaining lots of momentum ever since they got re-certified and converted back to making the elderly their primary focus of care.  TD has been ministering here since 1989.  Our last two visits were very special.

These are folks who have been largely forgotten and who need to be valued and reminded that they are still loved by God and still have much worth.

“You shall rise up before the grayheaded and honor the aged, and you shall revere your God; I am the LORD.” Leviticus 19:32

Orphanage Ministry – 1 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.  Meet at my home at 12:30 p.m.

On the other spectrum are children who also have no one to really call their own.  They don’t have parents!  What would you do if you grew up without parents?

These are darling kids who face a very uncertain future and need to know they are valued.  God has a heart for them, part of which they can experience by being with us.

“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” James 1:27

 

True Downward service is so crucial and essential to a true Christian life, so please take advantage of the opportunities to fulfill His calling for us through our SOS Saturdays.
Let your small group leaders know if you can make either ministry or both this Saturday! – Arthur

“How was it?” I asked

“It was WONDERFUL!” Sandra replied.

Sandra and Angela had just returned home from visiting the Care Center yesterday energized and enthused. They wanted to go back today.

If you need a little “Wonderful!” in your life right about now, I invite you to come over to my home at 9:30 a.m. as we go visit the elderly at the Care Center.  It will be a blessed time for them and for us.  Ask you small group leader if you have any questions.

See you tomorrow! – Arthur

Join SOS Saturday!/No TD Fri.

Hey TD!

For our first Serve Our Society (SOS) Saturday of the year, we will be visiting the newly re-opened South Pasadena Care Center (904 Mission St., 91030) to minister to the elderly residents there. from 10 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. Meet at the Care Center at 10 a.m. and expect to return by 12:15 p.m., or around 1:30 p.m. if you plan to have lunch with the group.  This does count towards your high school service hours requirement!

We will be adding more SOS opportunities in the months to come, so stay tuned!

Convalescent Home Sat./No TD Fri.

Hey TD,

Just a reminder that we will have our monthly convalescent home visitation on Saturday, from 10 a.m. – noon.  This is an essential ministry for TD, one that we’ve been doing since the 1980’s.

Come be a part of the legacy of ministering to those who have walked before us, the elderly.  They need us and we need them!

Meet at my home at 9:30 a.m. – Arthur
