Christmas Eve Worship



There are three times to worship
on Sunday, December 24th.

  • First we gather to celebrate the Fourth Sunday in Advent at 10:30 a.m. with Lessons and Carols. And . . .

  • Later the same day, we celebrate the birth of Jesus with special evening worship services at 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm. The two services will be essentially the same, featuring both Holy Communion and candlelight.
Spread the word; invite family and friends to come for Christmas Eve worship!

Take advantage of all these special worship opportunities to prepare your hearts and minds for the coming of the Lord!

Second Tuesdays

Small Group Gatherings


Every second Tuesday of the month from 5:30 to 7pm, you are invited to be a part of a small group. We will gather for prayer, Scripture reading, fellowship, food and games.

Multiple groups are forming, and they require a small commitment from the group members. It is our hope that as we gather each month (only missing when really necessary), we will grow closer to each other and to our Lord. We will have people who know where we are in our faith journeys and places in life, and we will be there for each other, lifting each other up and encouraging one another.

Would you like to participate? Currently, we are looking for hosts and for group members. So far we have...

  • A group (any age can participate) that will meet at Melinda and Ron Zorn’s house. At this gathering appetizers are provided and you are invited to bring a dessert to share.
  • A group for young families will meet at the parsonage, where kid-friendly dinner will be provided.

Please sign up on the welcome table.

A Poem for December

Advent


"A voice cries: In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God." Isaiah 40:3

In the wilderness of daily life
life uncertainty and fear hover near.
In the wilderness hear a voice
sound of God's word, hopeful voice.
Prepare the way, a highway straight.

A word to receive,
a call to act,
a message to share.

God comes in Christ, prepare the way,
In heart and mind and life: REJOICE.
