This Sunday, December 2, the Board of Christian Education will be sponsoring their Annual Advent Workshop after church. Have a cup of coffee and then join us for making advent wreaths out of three different materials — dough, greens and grapevines! As always, we’ll have pizza and beverages and cookies to sustain us through the noon hour!
Church School During Advent
Also, for families, we’ll be having our annual Christmas presentation on December 16. This year we are doing a reading and a tableau of the Nativity. Our reading was originally written by Peter when he was an associate pastor in Maine, and it will celebrate Christmas around the world. When I feel overwhelmed by the holiday “spirit”, it heartens me to learn how other cultures mark this holiest of holidays — the birth of the baby Jesus. We hope the whole congregation will join us in listening and in song.
