Advent Updates

This Sunday-- December 18, 2016 will be the last Sunday in Advent with two major events planned!  Sunday morning will be our annual Christmas Music Special featuring the Adult Choir, the Handbell Choir, and even a song from our children.  Its going to be a great morning for worship!  Invite a friend or neighbor. 

Sunday evening at 5:30pm we will have our Annual Potluck and Impromptu Christmas Pageant.  All children are invite to participate in the Impromptu Pageant, and we have costumes ready in all sizes.  Bring some food to share, as we gather as a Church family to remember the story of Jesus' birth.

Christmas Eve this year is on a Saturday Night (Dec. 24th), brass prelude to begin at 5:45 with the service at 6:00.  The service will include lighting the Christ candle on the Advent Wreath, communion, carol-singing, and candlelight.  Children are welcome to stay for the service, and a nursery will be provided for the convenience of loved ones.  Come prepared to give generously to Susannah's House (bring donations of items as well).

Christmas Day is a Sunday!  We will have worship that day at 10:45am in the Sanctuary.  Kids can wear their Christmas PJs and bring a new favorite toy.  We will sing carols and share the story of Jesus' birth on Christmas Day.

New Year's Day is also a Sunday-- this will be Bistro Church!  
We will meet downstairs in the Fellowship Hall for brunch and worship.  Let's start the new year off right with fellowship, worship, and our focus on God.

As always, invite your friends and neighbors! If your church family is a blessing to you and to our neighborhood, it will be a blessing to those that you invite to join us!
