Benefit Dinner And Silent Auction For Michael Frank Champine

Michael Champine was born February 18, 2011, weighing in at 9 lbs, 7 0z. At 10 months, he was still only 18 lbs.  He does not gain weight like a normal baby should or have BM’s like he should. Most of this is caused by GI issues but there isn’t much that can be done.  He is just considered failure to thrive and acute abdominal issues along with a severe allergy to milk. He has been hospitalized 3 times and on one of those occasions the parents were told he possibly wouldn’t make it.

A few months ago they inserted a feeding ‘tube. The formula for this is $50 a can. As of Jan 1st, 100% of medical bills and prescriptions have to be paid by the parents. He goes to the DR at least once a week. We are doing the dinner
and auction with all proceeds going to the family for bills, prescriptions, gas, etc.

Spaghetti Dinner: $5 for Adults

Many items to choose from in the Silent Auction

Where: Kipling United Methodist Church

Date: Saturday, March 31st, 2012 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Ash Wednesday – One Solitary Life

He was born in an obscure village.

He worked in a carpenter ship until he was about thirty.

He then became an itinerant preacher.

He never held an office.

He never had a family or owned a house.

He didn’t go to college.

He had no credentials but Himself.

After preaching three years, the public turned against Him.

His friends ran away.

He was turned over to His enemies and went through a mockery of a trial.

He was nailed to a cross between two thieves.

While He was dying, His executioners gambled for His clothing, the only property He had on Earth.

He was laid in a borrowed grave.

Nineteen centuries have come and gone, and today He is the central figure of the human race.

All the armies that ever marched, all the navies that ever sailed,

All the parliaments that ever sat, and all the kings that ever reigned,

Have not affected the life of man on the Earth as much as that

Advent 2011

The color for Advent is Purple. It’s the color of penitence and fasting as well as the color of royalty to welcome the Advent of the King-Jesus. The purple of Advent is also the color of suffering used during Lent and Holy Week. There is an important connection between Jesus’ birth and death. The nativity, the Incarnation, cannot be separated from the crucifixion. The purpose of Jesus’ coming into the world, of the “Word made flesh” and dwelling among us, is to reveal God and His grace to the world through Jesus’ life and teaching, but also through His suffering, death, and resurrection.

Advent means coming or arrival. The focus of the entire season is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ in his First Advent, and the anticipation of the return of Christ the King in his Second Advent. The Spirit of Advent is marked by expectation, of anticipation, of preparation, of longing. There is a yearning of deliverance from the evils of the world.

The Advent wreath symbolizes new and everlasting life brought through Jesus the Christ. The circle of the wreath reminds us of God Himself, His eternity and endless mercy, which has no beginning and no end. The green of the wreath speaks of the hope that we have in God, the hope of newness, of renewal, of eternal life. The candles symbolize the light of God coming into the world through the birth of His son. The four outer candles represent the period of waiting during the four Sundays of Advent, which symbolize the four centuries of waiting between the prophet Malachi and the birth of Christ.

The first candle is the candle of HOPE or Expectation which draws attention to the anticipation of the coming of the Anointed One, the Messiah, that weaves its way through the history of the Old Testament. The story of Hope comes to fruition in the New Testament with the birth of Christ and the redemption of our sins through His life. In the shadow of the cradle is the cross of redemption!
