Upcoming @ the Rockwell House

NO ROCKWELL HOUSE TONIGHT! Rockwell House is on a break tonight since most of you will be traveling and settling back into St. Louis.  We will be having The Feast on Wednesday night at 6:30pm. It's Christ the King Sunday, which means that next week is Advent 1, the liturgical new year and the beginning of our preparation for Christmas. Believe it or not The Rockwell House has only three Sunday gatherings for the rest of the semester, including the Advent Party which is going to be amazing.   Below you will see the schedule for the remainder of the calendar year.  

November 28: The Feast
December 2: Advent 1 (we begin worshiping inside the house)
December 2-8: Week of Guided Prayer (see details below) 
December: 5 The last Feast of the semester
December 9: ADVENT PARTY with the Lutherans! (See details below)

Tonight!
Tonight at the Rockwell House we're going to find out how hard it really is to get a camel through the eye of a needle!  There may or may not be a camel present.  I'm going to guess that, in fact, there won't be.  A needle might make an appearance though.  

Per usual, we'll meet in the chapel (behind Rockwell House) at 6:30 and have dinner following the service. We'll have a really good casserole for dinner that is sure to not disappoint.
