Taking Requests for Advent and Seminary Sunday

Taking Requests for Advent and Seminary Sunday

September 12, 2013

As a way of saying thank you to alumni, pastors, congregations, and friends, Sioux Falls Seminary is once again offering complimentary Advent devotional booklets to churches or individuals who request them.  Additionally, churches may request Seminary Sunday bulletin inserts and personal visits by seminary personnel to your congregation.

Advent Booklets
The Advent booklets are designed to enhance congregational and personal worship.  The 2013 booklet will contain five advent devotionals written by alumni of Sioux Falls Seminary.  Each devotional–one for each of the four weeks of Advent and one for Christmas day–is based on the theme: God’s Greatest Gifts. The weekly readings can offer helpful devotional thoughts for congregations that include Advent candle ceremonies in their Sunday worship services.  The devotionals can also be used by individuals or for family worship times.

Seminary Sunday Speakers
Seminary-Sunday has grown into a year-round and multi-denominational event.  Faculty and staff members are available throughout the year to make any Sunday a Seminary Sunday.  We are available to preach a sermon, provide SFS ministry updates, teach a Sunday school class, visit with potential students, and challenge people of all ages to consider God’s call in their lives. It is our way of saying thank you to those who support SFS with their gifts and prayers.

Seminary Sunday Bulletin Inserts
Bulletin inserts with student testimonies and other information are also available for distribution within your congregation.  They may be used on a designated Seminary Sunday or whenever your schedule allows.

Please respond with your requests for booklets, inserts, and speakers by Monday, September 30, 2013.  To make your requests, please fill out the online request form.
