Family Worship – Sunday, Dec. 23rd

There is no Sunday School today. Instead we will be having a wonderful service at 10:30 AM that invites our children’s participation with the full congregation as we celebrate the 4th Sunday of Advent.

We will light form a procession followed by the lighting of candles on the Advent Wreath in observance of the 4th Sunday in Advent when all candles are lit.

Parents: Please have all children gather in the Narthex (located in the back of the church) to process down to the front where the Advent Wreath is located. After we light the candles, children return to their families to enjoy a service of Lessons and Carols.

Stories from the bible will be told followed by the singing of carols, an English tradition. Christmas coloring packets will be handed out to the children that has stories about global Christmas traditions.

Everyone is invited to take an ornament that the children have made and place these on the trees. Please join us for this event.
