 Dear   ,    
 
Won't be long now! This coming Sunday is the Fourth Sunday in Advent and then the Christmas festivities will follow. In the midst of our busy schedules may the Christ child find room in the inn!
 
With love in Christ,

Advent Adventures

(The last opportunity)

 

   Advent

 

December 22 at 4pm - Greening of the Church                

A long-time Anglican tradition is an event called the greening of the church. This is the time when we set up the Christmas tree, and the nativity set as well. This is all done to the sound of Christmas carols and lots of laughter. Come join the fun and be amazed at how beautiful our sanctuary looks when we are done! Afterwards we adjourn to Havermale Hall for a pot luck soup supper. 

    

 


Christmas Services

Christmas Services
We will have two services on Christmas Eve. The Christmas Eve Family Service, which is especially designed to include children, will have an impromptu Christmas pageant and communion in the church, followed by a birthday party for Jesus with balloons, gifts, and cake in the parish hall. This service will be at 5 pm
The second service will be the Christmas Eve Candlelight Service with choir and communion at 10 pm.

On Christmas Day we will have a service with music and communion at 10am. Annie Bethancourt will provide a special anthem. 

Come join us to celebrate the birth of Jesus into the world and within our hearts!
