December 2014 TOWER

We provide two Sunday morning worship services: 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Summer hours may vary. Both services are a traditional/contemporary blend. Also provided are activity bags and activity bulletins. In the Overflow area, above and to the rear of the sanctuary, are a table and rocking chair so that parents with fussy children can still participate in the service. Children ages 4 through 3rd grade may choose, after the children’s sermon, to leave the sanctuary for Junior Worship. Special services include: Christmas Eve (2 services: family and communion; both are candlelit), Ash Wednesday, mid-week Lenten services, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter, Confirmation, All Saints, children’s Christmas program, choir cantata, and others.


‘Tis the Season to be Holy

Moving towards Christmas can be a hectic and busy, busy time.  How quickly we forget the true meaning of Christmas as the shopping and the baking and the visiting and the traveling and the memories and the weather all combine into a tangled mess of jingle-jangled nerves and good intentions torn to ribbons.

Let’s try not to do that this year.  Let’s remember the gracious love of God, come to earth as the baby Jesus.  Let’s make good decisions about how best to spend our time and our money and our energy…giving thanks and humming:

Joy to the world!  The Lord is come!   Let earth receive her king.                  Let every heart prepare him room.

       Your Church offers you many opportunities to pause and remember the reason for the season.  Clear your calendar for as many of these special events as possible, and invite a friend or a relative or a neighbor to come and rejoice with us.

In the name of Jesus,     Pastor Geri
