DECEMBER'S THEME - Moving from Darkness to Light!

Here’s what you can look forward to this month: SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP (10:30am)

The Season of Advent is a season of preparation for the coming of the Light of Christ.  Each Sunday in Advent, the worship service and the theme song “Keep Your Lamps Trimmed and Burning” will move us closer to the light of Christ on Christmas morning!

November 27 - 1st Sunday in Advent - a quiet but meaningful start to the Advent season.

December 4 – 2nd Sunday in Advent – Communion – this quieter service will continue to prepare us for the coming of the light of Christ in this season.  Fair Trade gifts will be available for purchase before and after the worship service.

AFTER THE SERVICE: Hanging of the Greens (the pizza is on us!),

Church Conference – 2:30pm at Broad Street UMC

December 11 – 3rd Sunday in Advent - Summit Choir Cantata – this music-filled worship service will continue to celebrate our movement toward the light of Christ!

December 18 – 4th Sunday in Advent - Celebrating the Light! – this upbeat service will make you want to sing and dance.  A special Children’s Choir will sing for us, Meghan Western will lead us in dancing and we will celebrate the closeness of the light of Christ!

CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE – Saturday, December 24 – Bringing in the light!

5:30 – Potluck                    6:30 – Candlelight Worship Service

December 25 – CHRISTMAS MORNING!  - The light has come.  Come dressed casually (you are welcome to come in your pajamas!) for this 45-minute celebration of the birth of Christ!!
