Don’t forget that this weekend we have ADVENT URE as we begin the new Church year with Advent and preparation for the birth of our Lord Jesus. This Sunday, November 29, 2015 is the first Sunday of Advent, we light the first purple (or blue or white) candle on our Advent wreaths. At 9:00 we will gather in an inter-generational event to discuss the symbols of the season. During the 10:15 service the children will have a special moment which will include a really cool gift. Then following the service, everyone will have a chance to construct their own home advent wreath.
Every Sunday during Advent will include a special moment for children.
Then Christmas Eve Services at 4:00 and 10:00 P.M. Christmas Day service (spoken Holy Eucharist) will be at 9:30 A.M. On Sunday, December 27, only one service will be celebrated at 10:15 A.M.
