Longest Night Christmas Service - December 21
A Longest Night Service is so named because of its proximity to the winter solstice—the longest night of the year. This service is designed as a time to take a step out of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. For one hour, let go of the lists and demands of the season and focus on the "real reason for the season." This worship offers a quiet time for everyone in the midst of the holiday festivities; it is a service of music, reflection, candlelight, and prayer for those seeking to find Christ at the center of their Christmas celebrations.
Christmas Eve Services - December 24
There will be two Christmas Eve services to celebrate Christ's birth: One at 5:30 p.m. and one at 7:30 p.m. Both services are essentially the same, but there will be different special music in each. Come and celebrate the real reason for the season!

Looking for volunteers
The Hospitality Committee has a new sign-up sheet in Pilgrim Hall next to the kitchen door looking for volunteers to host Fellowship Hour on Sunday morning. It typically takes three people to host, but it can be done with fewer. The directions explaining what is needed are right under the sign-up sheet. Please sign up!
Contributions are now easier and you don't even need a computer! Here's how it works: You authorize a specified amount to be electronically transferred from your checking or savings account to the church account or use a credit card. You specify the frequency of the transfer. It's fast, safe, easy, and secure. To sign up, fill out the Electronic giving form and return it to the church office.
Inclement weather policy
Though we rarely cancel worship services on Sunday, there are a few occasions when storms come on Saturday evening or Sunday morning that make driving treacherous making it prudent to cancel. Our Inclement Weather Policy calls for the Chairperson of Worship and Ministry along with the Pastor to make a decision by 7:30 AM in order to allow time for choir members, church school teachers, and others to be notified. If there is a question about a cancellation, listen to WLAD or tune into WTNH 8 or WFSB 3.
