Worship on the Mornings of the Eves (12/24/17 & 12/31/17)

Posted by on Dec 13, 2017 in EventAnnouncement, Worship & Prayer | 0 comments

Last year, Christmas Day and New Years Day happened to fall on a Sunday.  This year, we’re still in that “weekend” cycle;  Christmas EVE and New Years EVE fall on a Sunday in the 2017 calendar.

But Sunday is still the sabbath.  It’s still the first day of the week.  And it’s still that special day of the week where we “recharge our spiritual batteries” by thanking God for the week to come and to praise Him for who He is.  And so, holidays notwithstanding, we will still celebrate God on these two Sunday mornings.

But our services on Sunday December 24 and on Sunday January 31 will be a bit different…

 

Sunday December 24…

AM

On the “morning of Christmas Eve” we will hold one service (instead of the usual 9:30 & 11:00 schedule).  Our worship service that morning will be held at 10:15 AM.

Rev. Jim Hughes will be our special guest at the 12/24 service!  Jim’s ministry of music and drama has inspired us (and others across the country) for years, and it will be a blessing to unwrap this special holiday morning with His message.

Rev. Hughes spoke at the Pitman Camp meeting this past summer.  Here’s a summary of his message…

You Were There! (Camp Meeting, 7/16/17)

PM

On the evening of December 24 we will hold two Christmas Eve Services.  The first, at 4:00 will be geared towards families with young children.  The second, at 7:00, will be our traditional candlelighting service.

 

 

Sunday January 31…

AM

We will open the last day of 2017 by holding a single worship service at 10:15.  It will be a laid back informal time where we’ll celebrate Jesus by singing familiar carols and songs. 

PM

The sanctuary will be open between 6-8 PM, and the communion elements will be available.  There is no formal service.  This evening will be a time where you can spend some quiet moments in prayer, reflect on the past year, and to think about the year to come.  Come and go as you please.
