A Note from Patti
It’s almost here!!! Hopefully everyone is ready! Mark these dates and some new times: If you aren’t quite ready for all of this, or just really are not feeling it this year for whatever reason, maybe you’d like to join us for a Quiet Christmas service today. We’ll gather in the sanctuary at noon, and at 7 pm. Come, find blessing in community, and be fed with Holy Eucharist, our well for the journey.
This Sunday, the 22nd , make sure to plan on seeing St. Nicholas in the Parish Hall at 10:30. (Bring your cameras!) The children will have an opportunity to hear the St. Nick story from the man himself! After story time, the children will be invited to sit with him for individual pictures.
We have divided our past 4:00 Christmas Eve service into 3:00 and 5:00 this year so that everyone can fit in the main sanctuary comfortably. There are the later candlelight services with our adult choirs, too – music starts at 7:30 for the 8:00 service, and at 10:30 for the 11:00 service. Be sure to invite your friends and relatives! Below is an inviting welcome video you can share with family and friends, on your Facebook page, Twitter account or in local FB groups!
On Sunday, Dec. 29, join us for Christmas Lessons and Carols. It will be a beautiful service of readings and music. AND, we'll have a wonderful New Year's pot-luck brunch for coffee hour between the services! Bring a breakfast casserole to share.
Don’t forget to take time to be quiet, to rest – even for a few moments – and be thankful for all the many blessings of this life and season.
