This time of year can get hectic. It feels like just yesterday we had our Advent Carol Festival, and now we stand on the edge of Christmas, the edge of the New Year too if you think about it.
So with all the busyness of the season, with all the running around, I just wanted to stop and take a minute to say Merry Christmas to you and yours. May the Spirit of the season find a place at your table and the Christ-child a place in your hearts.
Now if you are seeking a place to worship in the midst of this week as we follow the star to the manger, there are a couple of choices.
- 7 p.m., Thursday, December 24th: Family Christmas Eve Service. Come and discover the miracle of the season together as we hear the stories of Birth, Sharing the News, and Bringing the Gifts. All are welcome from the youngest to the eldest and wisest among us. Bulletin available here.
- 11 p.m., Thursday, December 24th: Christmas Communion Service. Share with the children of God the meal at Christ’s table. Regardless of age, race, gender, or sexuality, the table of Christ is open to you and to all. As we celebrate the birth of a miracle – God among us – we also celebrate the Holy Sacrament of Communion, the meal that binds us to one another in grace. Bulletin available here, and the Communion Insert can be found here.
If you are unable to make it to either of these services, do consider joining us on Sunday for another edition of Downtown United, the combined worship of God’s children from Wilmot United and St. Paul’s United. It is a service of singing and united praise. Service takes place at St. Paul’s United at 10:30 a.m.. We hope to see you there!
Yours ever in Christ,
