This activity is also special because it is not exclusive to our young people! YOU ARE INVITED! It is a wonderful time to celebrate the season with all ages of our church family.

Join us on Sunday, December 10th. We will leave the church at 3:15, with our first stop being Windsor Place at 3:30. Join us as we spread some holiday cheer!

It will be a time of music, prayer, and reflection as we acknowledge the pain and darkness in our world, but turn our eyes to a brighter future.

A Musical Moment

Hi Friends!

This week's hymn is O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.

This hymn is ancient, not only in its text but also in its music. While the tune used today was not finalized until the 1800s, it is based on plainsong, which was used in the church during medieval times. The lack of strict rhythmic measures gives the tune a free-flowing style.

You can almost imagine the simple intervals echoing through a stone cathedral. The text developed without the chorus as a series of liturgical phrases used during Advent. Each stanza concentrates on a different biblical name for Christ, making this hymn a rich source for Christian meditation. Jesus is Emmanuel - "God with us"; Wisdom from on high; Desire of nations; Lord of might; Rod of Jesse; Dayspring; and Key of David. As we approach Christmas, let us take some time to think about the nature of the Christ whose coming we celebrate.

Confirmation Class
We have some exciting plans in store for Confirmation Class this year! We are inviting all 7th and 8th graders to join in this exciting and important point in many young people's faith journey! Confirmation will be meeting on Sunday afternoons, on the first and third Sunday of each month. It will be a time of fun, food, and learning. If you have any questions, please reach out to Jamison Rudd.
