Good day siblings in Christ,
This weekend will be a fun and special worship service as we have a pageant! It is not just any pageant, though; it is a pop-up Christmas pageant, meaning there is no practice, we do not know who is playing what character, and it will be semi-spontaneous. The whole congregation will be invited to participate, and individuals will be asked to come forward prior to each act. It should be lots of fun or a big old mess. Either way, we are going to a little playful this weekend and we hope you will join us.
After Sunday service, the altar guild will decorate the church for Christmas. If you could help, I am sure they could use some extra hands. Please feel free to stay and help.
There is a time limit this week to Sunday activities. We must leave the parish hall by 12:30 so it can be prepared for a funeral luncheon. I will be leading the funeral at the funeral home, so I cannot be present to help out at the hall.
Here is our worship schedule for the next few weeks:
December 18: Pop-up Christmas pageant.
December 24: Christmas Eve service at 7:00 p.m.
Sunday, December 25: Christmas morning service at 10:00 a.m. Relaxed attire such as jammies or Santa hats is welcomed.
Sunday, January 1: Lessons and Carols service at 10:00 a.m.
