The Christian calendar is the Church’s way of keeping time. It is the seasons and days we use to mark events in the life of Jesus Christ and the Church. In the Christian calendar, the new year begins with the season of Advent, when we celebrate the coming of Jesus Christ into the world and also His promised final coming. Next is the Christmas season, which begins on Christmas Eve and is 12 days long (“The Twelve Days of Christmas’). Here we rejoice with angels at the birth of God in the flesh, Jesus our Lord.

Here is the schedule for our church-wide celebrations during this Holy Season:

Dec. 2 (Sunday) – Hanging of the Greens service, 4:00 PM, in the Sanctuary

Dec. 3 (Monday) – UM Men’s Christmas Dinner with the Sharp Tones, 6:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall.

Dec. 21 (Thursday) – Blue Christmas service, 4:00 PM, in the Sanctuary.
(see article inside the newsletter)

Dec. 24 (Sunday) – Christmas Eve morning, one service at 11:00 AM.
Christmas Eve worship at 6:30 PM, in the Sanctuary.

Note: the church office will be closed Dec. 25 – Jan. 1, reopening Jan. 2, 2018.

Dec. 31 (Sunday) – Back to our regular Sunday morning worship schedule, with services at 8:30 and 11:00 AM as well as Sunday School at 9:45.

May you and yours be filled with the blessings of the coming of Christ!
