2019 Midweek Advent

5PM: craft and fellowship

5:25pm: carols by request

5:30pm: Evening Prayer

6pm: cookies and fellowship

On Wednesdays at 5pm, families may join in the upstairs classrooms for a craft that leads us to the theme of the services. Or you may take it home to complete and discuss at home.

At 5:25pm we will begin the singing of carols by request from our small Christmas book. These include hymns as well as other popular carols. Shortly thereafter we will begin the Service of Light, Evening Prayer. Enjoy some cookies and hot chocolate afterwards.

The first week, December 4th, is an emphasis of God with us as our potter and we are the clay. We will be making  air dried clay ornaments.

The second week, December 11th, we hear of God with us as our Shepherd who gives us life for us, His sheep. We will make a small sheep with cotton balls that stands and will be used for the 3rd week.

December 18th is God with us as our Living Branch. We look to Jesus who gives us life and will have a little field for our sheep to remind us the story.

Each week also is a puzzle magnet for each household in attendance at the services. You will receive 2 pieces of the puzzle that form into one magnet for your Christmas anticipation. This likewise emphasizes our preparation and building up toward a wonderful Christmas celebration.
