Winter Solstice Celebration
Friday, December 21 • 7:00 p.m. • Parish Hall
Come join us for a contemplative, family-friendly, Celtic-inspired ritual to mark the turning of the year as the darkness gives way to the growing light. This participatory ritual will include chanting, meditation, candle-lighting, singing, and cauldron jumping. Kids — bring animal masks and hand percussion (rattles, shakers, bells)!
Family Sunday • Holy Families
Sunday, December 23 • 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. only • Sanctuary
Don’t miss our Christmas Family Sunday service! The service will begin with a carol sing-a-long. Our infamous carol shout will be held during the 11:00 a.m. service. The ministers will preside, old stories will be told, and good cheer will be shared by all.
Sunday Worship • The Stories We Tell, the Stories We Forget
Sunday, December 30 • 10:00 a.m. only • Sanctuary
Hallman Ministerial Intern Kathryn Jay and worship associate Bob Lies will celebrate a famous family who escaped Bethlehem to safety, and wonder how the story changes when we remember the other families left behind to weep for their children.
Our little mitten tree will stand in the Whitman Lobby on the lower level, waiting to be decorated with warm hats, gloves, scarves and — yes —mittens! All donated items should be new or like new. All items will be distributed through Amicus.
