Contrary to the consumer message, Christmas starts on Christmas Day. Advent comes beforeChristmas and it is a season of waiting. As I write this the waiting is nearly over. December 20 is the last Sunday in Advent, a time when our congregational lets the children retell the story of the Nativity. The costumes have been gathered and we are ready for a family celebration! You can join the party at 10:30 Sunday.
On Christmas Eve we'll give added meaning to the story at a candlelight communion service at 7pm.
The first Sunday in Christmas is December 27th and the Ireland family will lead a worship of songs and story. This is my last service before retirement and I'd love for you to share it with me!
The other Pat, Elder Pat Larkin, will bring the message on the first Sunday of the New Year.
And Presbytery Executive The Rev. Dr. Ed Thompson will preach on the 10th.
Keep checking here for future Sundays as we look forward to a variety of voices as we move into the future God is preparing for us.
New Beginnings always prompt a review of the Past.
This congregation extends its ministry through the work of Presbyterian World Mission.
