Sunday at 10 AM, Come in your work clothes. After a few minutes to start with prayers and a couple of hymns, We’ll work together to decorate the church for Christmas. Younger people will decorate a Christmas tree for our guests from Abraham’s Tent. Don’t forget to bring an ornament to contribute!

The Feast of the Nativity A.D. 2014

Wednesday, December 24 – Christmas Eve

Children’s Service 3 p.m.

This service looks a lot like a Christmas Pageant, but is actually quite different. It is not a performance by the children, rather it is a worship experience designed for them. Bring young children dressed as animals (any kind), angels, or shepherds. Older children help tell the story so the younger children can go to Bethlehem in their imaginations.

The Christ Mass 11 p.m.

“Magic” for adults: The full traditional ceremonial, candle light, special music by guest musicians and the choir, favorite Christmas carols for the congregation, prayers at the manger, sermon by the rector.

Thursday, December 25 – Christmas Day

Christmas Eucharist 11 a.m.

A simple celebration of the day, with congregational carols & sermon by the rector.

December 27 & 28 – The First Sunday of Christmas

This weekend, the schedule of services will be as usual: Saturday at 5 PM, Sunday at 8 and 10 AM, except that there will be no Christian Education on this day. Lesson and Carols at the 10 AM service.
