Blue Christmas Worship Service
Re-centering and Praying Through the Holidays
This year during Advent, we will be holding a service that is new, but can be deeply meaningful and important during this time of year. The holidays can be hard for a wide variety of reasons, whether you are mourning a loss, feeling down, or just uncertain about the world, and this year we are going to provide a worship space to live into those feeling and be together in prayer and reflection. Please join us on Thursday, December 13th at 6:30 PM for a Blue Christmas service. There will be hymns, prayer, and individual time of healing. All are welcome!
Advent: Christmas Around the World
Christmas around the World is the theme of our Advent Event this year. This journey around the world will take us to various other countries learning about their Christmas traditions. There will be fun activities, crafts for all ages and festive treats downstairs in the social hall on Sunday, December 16th between the worship services. If you are so inclined, you may bring a gift of a new stuffed animal or a blanket to donate to With Love, From Reid where all the donations will be enjoyed by children at CHKD.
Trinity Youth Musical Performance
On December 23rd, between services (9:30 AM), the Trinity Youth will perform Great Joy. This is a compassionate story of a little girl and a street corner organ grinder. It will be read, accompanied by tableaus by the children to illustrate the scenes, with singing of familiar carols by both children and adults.
Christmas Eve Worship Services

De-Greening of the Church
Mark your calendars! On January 6th, following the 10:00 AM worship service we will undecorate (de-green) the church on Epiphany Sunday, when all the ornaments and greenery must be packed away for another year. Many hands make light work.
