6pm Soup & Stable Service–Fellowship Hall
On Sunday, December 17th there will be a Soup Supper and Stable Service at 6:00pm in the Fellowship Hall. It starts with a soup supper provided by members of the church family. After dinner, all children who would like to be part of the stable service are provided with costumes for the reenactment of the nativity in the barn just a short walk from the church. (A few cars can be driven there for those unable to walk, or if it’s raining.) The barn is filled with hay, soft lights and a few animals, as the children act out the Christmas story as angels, shepherds, wisemen, and stable animals. Come sing the carols, breathe the hay scented air, hear the animals, and experience the story of Christmas. The stable service is usually over by 8 pm.
Monday December 18
7pm Blue Christmas Service—Sanctuary
On a beautiful day, the brilliance of a blue sky caps off everything under it. When we look at water and it is a deep blue, there is a sense of purity and depth which is pleasing. Yet when blue is the color in our hearts, then it is every bit as painful and deep as it is beautiful and pure in other places. We will gather on Monday, December 18 at 7pm in the Sanctuary to own the blue feelings that live in us at this time amidst the joy and festivity of the Christmas Season for others. We gather this night to worship because we are not alone.
