Here’s what’s happening during this holiday season:
December 5 – 25 “La Posada” Join in our annual tradition of inviting Mary, Joseph and Joshua (the donkey) to share your home, “to welcome them into the “inn”. The beautiful paper maché family were made by our beloved past members, Millie and Julianne. They will start their journey from church on the first Sunday of Advent, and then whoever has the family will arrange the transfer and delivery to their next home. There is a journal to share pictures or thoughts about your time with the trio that you would like to share.
December 24 Christmas Pageant – The youth of FCCSR will take over our regular Sunday Worship on the day before Christmas to present their dramatic interpretation of the Christmas Story. It’s chaotic. It’s fun. And, it often provides a surprising insight into the deeper meaning of Christmas. This year the Roman Government has appointed a special prosecutor to investigate the obviously FAKE NEWS being circulated about the imminent birth of a new King the Jews. Be there to witness this no-holds-barred investigation. Curtain time is 10 AM.
December 24 Christmas Eve Services
7 PM – A family service celebrating the Christmas story through scripture readings and carols. Children are invited to bring nativity scenes or statuettes of Madonna and Child to place on the alter during the service.
11 PM – A contemplative service of anticipation with candle lighting, Communion and music.
