Advent Adult Forums During Advent we will be focusing three evening sessions on prayer. We will be meeting on three consecutive Wednesdays, December 3rd, 10th and 17th. We will present three different styles of prayer: a Taize service with easy meditative singing and readings, another session on Centering prayer and one on praying with scripture or the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola. A light supper of soup and salad will be served at 6:30 each Wednesday and then our study and experience of prayer will be from 7:00 - 8:00 pm. There will be a sign up sheet in Farmer Hall for anyone who would like to bring some food to share.
Christmas Pagent, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Services Schedules
This year we have decided to move the Christmas pageant from December 24 to Sunday, December 21 during the 10:15 service. This change has come about after much discussion. We realize that Christmas Eve is a very busy time for families so we decided to simplify this holy day. Laura Miller has graciously agreed to coordinate the pageant and is seeking some adult volunteers, so please contact her if you are able to assist. There will be one parent-coordination meeting on Tuesday, December 2 from 5:30 to 6:25 pm and only one rehearsal for the kids on Saturday, December 20 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.
In addition, we decided to combine the 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm Christmas Eve services into one liturgy at 5:00 pm. We will involve children, and there will be an inter-generational music ensemble. Of course we will be singing our familiar Christmas hymns. A later service begins at 10:30 pm with festive music, and the liturgy of the word starts at 11:00 pm. There will be a Christmas morning service at 10:00 am.
Brown Bag Lunches
On the second Wednesday of every month from 12:00-1:00pm, please join Fr. Steve and various church leaders for a relaxed unstructured conversation in Farmer Hall as we break bread together. We will provide beverages and dessert, you bring whatever you would like to eat. We will discuss any questions, thoughts, ideas, or issues that are brought up and make connections with those we may not know or see very often.
