The year-end calendar does its mischief!

So many things happen this time of year.  It is difficult enough to tend to them in the conventional calendar.  Bjut, in the compressed time of the academic year, we really have to scramble.

for instance, in the liturgical calendar, last Sunday was The Feast of Christ the KIing.  The coming Sunday is the First Sunday of Advent.  We have four weeks before Christmas, and five before New Year's.

But, in the school year, November 26 through 30 is the Thanksgiving Break.  December 3 is the last day of classes. December 4 is Study Day.  Exams begin December 5 and run through the eleventh.  It is a busy time academically for students.  Add in some of the things that we try to do, and the barrage is fairly constant.

We have our Thanksgiving worship service (with a Thanksgiving Feast provided by The Asbury Sunday School Class of Germantown United Methodist Church) on November 25.  We are closed for break November 26-30.  We have our Trim-the-Tree party December 1.  We compress our entire seasonal observance into our Service of Lessons and Carols on December 2.  We close our year's activity with Food 4 Finals (with food provided by Covenant United Methodist Church) on December 11.

That's a lot of stuff.  That's not much time.  But, in the middle of the seasonal hubbub, we hope to be in ministry to the campus community.  Join us in our activities.   Bring a friend.
