So Many Ways to Worship & Celebrate Jesus’ Birth

Each Sunday in December leading up to Christmas, we will celebrate the Season of Advent. As we light candles in the Advent Wreath, we prepare for, and anticipate, the coming of Christ.

The United Methodist Women will host a Cookie Walk Sunday, December 10th starting at 8:30 a.m. and a Ladies’ Advent Gathering Tuesday, December 12th at 7 p.m.

Our Service of Lessons & Carols will be Sunday, December 17th at 10 a.m. Regular Chapel service will be at 8:00 a.m.

Our Longest Night worship service will be Monday, December 18th at 7 p.m.

Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday this year.
After prayerful consideration, we felt it is best to combine our two Sunday morning worship services and offer one combined worship service at 9 a.m. This will be followed by a Christmas Coffee Fellowship time.

Christmas Eve

4 p.m. – A family service featuring our Chancel Choir (nursery will be staffed)
8 p.m. – Traditional service featuring a string ensemble.

A Parking Reminder...
Remember that we are allowed to park in the YMCA lots, but not in the “Hair Connection” lot beside us on Third Street. This is especially important to remember now. That building has a new tenant, Grace Reformed Church, whose members will also need to park on Sundays. Let us be good neighbors.
