We invite you to experience comfort and joy in a
special worship service series for Advent. Each
service in the 4-part series focuses on a selected
portion of Isaiah 40 that captures one of four specific aspects of the comfort Christ comes to
bring -- peace, pardon, presence and power.
Our children will be studying the same themes in
Children's Church and doing special crafts
related to what they are learning about comfort
and joy.

We also have an Advent Bible study on the peace,
pardon, presence and power of Christ on Thursdays from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Join us on December 4,
11 and 18 for a light soup luncheon and Bible
study, led by Deborah Dail, Jay Dunn, Kristi
Spivey and Rusty Norton. If you do not have an
opportunity to sign up and would like to attend
any of the sessions, please call the church office
(877-2048) by the Wednesday before the study so
that we may include you in the soup count.
Please join us!

Are You Looking for a Circle of Friends? A Small Group May Be the Answer.
Here at Denbigh United we have several Small Groups and are eager to start more. A Small
Group is a group of 6-12 people who meet weekly or every other week for Bible study/discussion,
prayer, fellowship and service. Deep and abiding friendships can grow in these groups as believers
study God’s Word and support one another.
Our existing groups are listed below. If you are interested in an existing group or in being a
part of a new group, please contact Deborah Dail or Tim Jacoby.
 Sunday evenings (every other week) from 6:00-7:30 p.m. This group meets at the church
and childcare is provided. The facilitator is Kristi Spivey, and the group is currently studying Managing Life. For information, call Kristi at (757) 814-9538.

Sunday evenings (every other week) from 5:30-7:30 p.m. This group discusses state, national and world current events in the context of the Presbyterian faith. This group meets
at the home of Dale and Keith Pennell. For more information, contact Dale Pennell at
(757) 303-7762.

Monday evenings (every week) at 7:30 p.m. This group meets at the home of Tim and
Debbie Jacoby. The group is discussing What’s So Amazing About Grace? For more information, contact Tim Jacoby at (412) 720-4808.
Adult I Sunday School Class
The Adult I Sunday School Class meets at 9:15 in the Conference Room. Jay Dunn
teaches this class. Acts of Worship will be our study theme with readings in Psalms,
Daniel, Matthew, Luke, John, Ephesians, Hebrews, and James. All adults interested in
Bible study are welcome to come.
Ladies Discussion Group
The Women’s Discussion Group is studying “A Season of Peace – Things That Make for
Peace” on Sundays at 9:15 a.m. in the Parlor. The study will focus on the inner and outer
dimensions of peace as foundational to faithful discipleship. Amy Schmidt leads this
class.
Living as a Committed Christian in the
Kingdom in the 21st Century Class
The Discussion Group on “Living as a Committed Christian in the 21st Century” led by

Worship at the Gardens at Warwick Forest
As some of you may know, DUPC conducts a Monday morning worship service at
The Gardens at Warwick Forest four times a year. Please join us on December 29
at 10:00 a.m. for the next service. The Gardens is a Riverside Hospital continuing
care facility. Depending on their physical condition, those in residence may attend
the chapel service or watch the live televised program from the comfort of their
rooms. Last month, over twenty DUPC members participated in the worship service as greeters, in singing, as comforters, and in general support of this outreach.
It is a true blessing to see the impact we have on those who may not otherwise have
a worship experience. Are you interested in helping? Participation in this rewarding effort is made easy. Come and sing, greet, pass out bulletins, or act as a worship leader. For information, please call Rusty Norton at 757-814-1091 (C) or
send an email to [email protected]
Blessings to all, Rusty

furniture, etc., please consider donating them to

gladly take the donated items to where they will
do the most good.

Angel Board Outreach Ministry
Many thanks for your generosity to the missions of Denbigh United Presbyterian Church. Once again this year we are through our Paul's Ministry providing gifts for children and food for their families for Christmas. For some of
you the gift process may be new, so here is some clarification.
♥Each child receives underwear, t-shirts or bras, socks and a gift of approximately
$20 or less. Please note on the tags for socks, you are provided the shoe size in
order to select the proper size socks. You are not asked to buy shoes.
♥To maintain the anonymity of the children and their families, each family has
a number and each child has a letter. Some of you have asked how to sign up to
help a child with all four of his/her gifts. You would go to the bulletin board where
the tags are posted and select (for example) all of the tags for 5A. The number
represents the family and the letter represents the child. If you would like to buy
all of the gifts for that one child, all of the tags (there would be 4) would read
"5A". There is of course no pressure whatsoever to do all the gifts for one child.
We are just providing this information for those who have inquired.
♥Please remember to write your name on the tag which remains stapled to the
bulletin board, tear off the top tag to take with you and place it securely on the gift
which the Outreach Committee is requesting be put in a gift bag. The gift bags are
due in by December 14.
♥If shopping is impossible or daunting for you, we are accepting financial donations
toward the gifts and we have shoppers at the ready.
♥Further, if you wish to provide or donate toward the food being provided to the
families for the Christmas holiday and break from school, please see the list
provided in the bulletin or make your donation designated "Christmas Food."
If you have questions, please call the church office at 877-2048. Once again,
thank you for your generosity now and throughout the year.
December 28, 2:00 PM – Holiday gathering at the home of Verni
Saunders and George Brown ~ Please bring your favorite finger food
to share. Sign-ups will begin on Sunday, November 30 at the kitchen
counter.
Our Trunk-or-Treat
event on October 31
was a huge success!
Many thanks to the
those who provided
the trunks & the
many children who
enjoyed a great
evening!
Youth Retreat at Makemie Woods: "Awesome!"
Eleven of our middle school students attended a Presbytery-wide
youth retreat at Makemie Woods November 21-23. They worshiped,
played, studied and celebrated with more than 100 other youth from
churches in the Presbytery of Eastern Virginia.
Thank you to Vanessa Gamble and Juanita
Singletary who attended the retreat with the youth.
Thank you to Kathy Baldwin, Deborah Dail and Debbie
Ames who provided transportation for the students to
Makemie Woods. Thank you to the entire DUPC congregation for your generous gifts to the operating budget
of the church as this allowed the 11 students and 2
chaperones to attend this meaningful retreat.
Christmas Luncheon
On Sunday, December 21, we will have a covered dish Christmas Luncheon immediately following the service. You are invited to bring a dish plus a bit more to share and enjoy the fellowship of this event. There may even be a surprise visitor after
lunch!
A note from Carol Lynch:
Dear Reverend Dail and New Comers Committee Members,
Thank you for taking the time to do the New Members class. It was nice having the
opportunity to meet you and the other prospective members over lunch. I now have a
better understanding of The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), its history and governmental structure. Mike’s sharing of his spiritual ideas as a Christian and a member of
DUPC was most encouraging. I look forward to getting to know each of you better.
In Christ’s love and with appreciation ~ Carol Lynch
Stewardship Committee
December is the month in which we remember those who have
dedicated their lives to the service of the church. We do this
through the Christmas Joy Offering. This gift also supports
leadership development and education. Please be in prayer for
this offering.
Preschool News
During the month of November, our preschool students learned about being
thankful and sharing with those who are less fortunate. Our families donated over 50 food items for THRIVE and filled 6 shoeboxes to send to Operation Christmas Child. I hope that the valuable lessons we are teaching at a young age will
lead to a lifetime of charitable giving and kindness towards others.
Once November has come and gone, we will be getting ready to celebrate the Christmas holiday! Our annual Christmas chapel will be held on December 17 and 18. The program
will begin at 11:30 a.m. each day, so please join us if you can. The children have already been
practicing their songs and bell ringing, and they will be so excited to perform. Plus, they look
so cute dressed up in their Christmas best.
In addition to Christmas chapel, December will be filled with special celebrations and
events. Our four year old classes will be baking gingerbread men. Watch out-the gingerbread
man has been known to run away! The students always have fun searching for him. We will
also have a special visit from Mrs. Claus. The three year olds will learn about reindeer and
have a special reindeer snack. All of the children will be learning about the true meaning of
Christmas.
All of the staff of DUPP would like to wish all of you a joyous and fun-filled holiday.
Merry Christmas!
Tammy Castagna, DUPP Director
The DUPC Staff and Volunteer Oversight Team recognized Veronika Jones
for her many years of service as sexton at SPC on Sunday, October 26, 2014
during the worship service and at a reception after the worship.
The team accepted the resignation of Rusty Norton as ministerial assistant/
chaplain effective December 31, 2014. We are very appreciative of his dedicated service here at DUPC.
Kindergarten through 5th Grade students are studying from a new curriculum called Grow, Proclaim, Serve! Each child will come to know the wonders
of God's love with lessons from the Bible.
Unit 1 - Hope is Born
Unit 2 - Touched by Jesus
Unit 3 - Miracles
We are providing Children’s Church for students in kindergarten through 5th
grade. Children will be excused from the sanctuary after the children’s sermon. Parents are asked to pick up children from room 5 after the worship service. Students will learn about worship, engage in worship and learn a Bible
lesson. Volunteers are needed for this ministry to continue on a weekly basis.
After a very successful fall term of Faith Weaver Friends, this ministry to
children in kindergarten through high school will resume on Wednesday,
January 14 at 5:45 p.m. The winter/spring term will run until April 29.
This ministry reaches 30-40 children/teens weekly with dinner/
fellowship, Bible study, recreation/crafts. Your financial gifts and the gift of
your service in this ministry make it possible.
More adult volunteers are always needed. Please contact Liz Marshall
at 877-2048 to see how you can support this ministry to our children and
youth.

Thank you so much for all the prayers, well wishes,
and meals for me and my family during my tonsillectomy. I am truly blessed for such a loving and
caring church family.
Thanks you - Liz Marshall
I wish to thank our church family for all the prayers
and support you have given me during my diagnosis
and ongoing treatment. Your calls, cards, emails
and food were greatly appreciated. Just knowing
that I am being held in your prayers is very encouraging. My doctors and I are optimistic that this
treatment will be successful.
Ray Minch
We are so very grateful for all the support and all
the work done by so many DUPC folks in supporting Betty's funeral service at the Second Facility. Also we would like to thank the church family
for the support, prayers, cards and personal encouragement given to us during Betty's illness.
Bob Young and family
Writing to share happy news, and to thank you for
your thoughts and prayers. Our son, Drew Holt,
(grandson of Beverly and Charles Krespach), returned home safely from US Army deployment this
week. Drew will continue to serve in the reserves,
and plans to seek employment while continuing to
work toward his college degree. As many of you
know, your church meant the world to my mom and
dad. Your prayers, as those who loved and worshipped with them, held us up this year.
Thank you ~ Dave and Claire Holt
