Prepare Ye the Way
The Worship Committee has prepared a variety of offerings
to help celebrate Advent and get into the Christmas spirit.
Please join us as we give thanks for our blessings and remember
all in our hearts as we prepare to celebrate the Lord's birth.
Advent Wreath Making
November 27 at 9:00 a.m.
Join friends and family in the Parish Hall to make a live evergreen Advent wreath for your home and enjoy treats, hot cider, and Advent music! Please bring $25.00 to cover the cost of the materials. You will take home your wreath, candles, a book of prayers & readings, and an Advent calendar!
Cocoa and Carols
December 4 at 9:00 a.m.
Join us to sing your favorite Christmas hymns, enjoy the story of St. Nicholas, hot cocoa and treats as we celebrate St. Nicholas Day. Don't miss this wonderful event and bring some canned goods for the Food Pantry along with you.
Tuesday, December 6, 7:00-8:30 p.m.
You're invited into the St. Peter's sanctuary for a Blue Christmas service. The Christmas season is not always a time of joy and cheer for people, especially if they have suffered losses of family, friends, jobs or other life crisis. Join us for a service that draws upon the hope of the Advent season, with prayers for comfort and healing. The service mixes scripture, music, poetry and time for personal prayer and laying on of hands and anointing.
Hanging of the Greens
December 18 following the 10:00 a.m. service
The tall and the small are invited to help decorate the church for Christmas. Help hang the greenery, set out the poinsettias, and ready the church for the celebration of Christ's birth!
On this date there will also be a special reception to wish
our Interim Rector, Meg Wagner farewell.
Adult Formation in Advent
December 11 & 18 at 9:00 a.m.
Join us for two sessions using excerpts (provided) from the book
Run Shepherds, Run: Poems for Advent and Christmas to explore the intersection of poetry and Christian faith. The Advent season is filled with rich themes that have fascinated poets and we will explore some of those themes through several poems.
