Advent & Christmastide
Mark your calendars for these special events during Advent & Christmastide!
Sunday, DECEMBER 2, 10:00am:
As Advent begins we anticipate the celebration of the birth of Jesus by wondering what kind of darkness and illumination is at hand. A Communion service for all.
Thursday, DECEMBER 6, 7:00am:
Taizé prayer service shared with several congregations. A quiet time of silence, framed by scripture read in several languages and the singing of chants and songs specifically used in this kind of repetitive, centering community singing.
Sunday, DECEMBER 9, 10:00am:
This special Sunday in Advent we welcome into formal membership a “bouquet” of new members. How do each of us lend out light? How do we plug in to our source? Do we shine brighter together?
Sunday, DECEMBER 16, 10:00am:
Worship features our annual Children’s Pageant. Many traditions from around the world involve light. The children of the church will present a few customs from Sweden, Korea, Mexico and Ethiopia. Followed by festivities and a visit from Santa in Community Hall. Everyone is invited!
