To Hymn or Not To Hymn, part 1

Adult Ed Sunday at 9:00 in the Covenant Room is a chance to explore comparisons of our two hymnals…and beyond! It will include a bit of singing of favorite Advent carols, with a similar session for Christmas carols in a couple weeks. Here is the Zoom link.

Midweek Soup & Song – Starts Wednesday

During the season of Advent, there will be three opportunities on Wednesday evenings for some simple supper and carol singing together. We’ll gather at 6:00 for (probably) soup and move to some simple worship and your favorite carols, finishing before 7:30. Join on Dec. 7 and 14, and the Longest Night service on Dec. 21.

 

Christmas Candies from Your Middle Schoolers

On Saturday, the Middle School youth group is gathering to prepare some Christmas treats. They will be available on Sunday for whatever you wish to pay. Any funds will go toward the Confirmation shopping trip next month to stock the Lussier Food Pantry.

 

 

Olive GOODS

Various olive products from Palestine are Good works of art, taste really Good, and offer Good—even Great—support for Palestinian producers. Olive wood carvings, fair trade olive oil, and more will be on sale Sunday. Your purchases—for yourself or as gifts—offer a vital lifeline to a tourism industry that was stifled by Occupation before being shutdown entirely by the pandemic.

 

High School Youth Christmas Hang Out

Join us on Dec. 7th for Midweek worship then a Christmas-themed hang out. We'll join midweek worship at 6pm as a group then have some time to relax, chat, and play.

Calling all Christmas Musicians!

As has been our MCC tradition, we are planning for 30 minutes of pre-service music at both the 4:00 and 7:30 Christmas Eve services. MCC members, friends, and families are invited to sign up to provide a musical offering. Please email LisaAnn if you are interested, or if you have any questions. Space is still available at both services (3:30-4:00 for the 4:00 service, 7:00-7:30 for the 7:30 service.) Deadline is Dec. 15th - first come, first served.

Youth Christmas Program - Dec. 18

We ARE having a Christmas program this year on Dec. 18. Our Sunday morning Faith Formation and Christmas program come from Illustrated Ministry’s 2022 Advent season theme Now in Flesh Appearing. We will explore the gift of God becoming incarnate in the person of Jesus Christ and what that means on our lives today. Included in this will be weekly family devotional that will be available to take home each Sunday.
Let us know if your child(ren) ages Birth-8th grade will participate in the program by selecting that option on the 2022-23 MCC Faith Formation Permission & Participation Form.
Children ages 4 and under are invited to be a part of the program this year along with one of their parents.

We are also in need of high school students to participate! They can sign up to do that by visiting this sign-up genius link. There is a need for both speaking and non-speaking high school participants.

Mark your calendars! We’ll have a rehearsal on Saturday, December 17th from 10:30 – Noon, followed by Gingerbread House making.

Calling all Youth Musicians!

We are looking for musicians who would like to participate musically in the youth led service on December 18th. Any and all experience are welcome. We will find a part for you! Those interested please contact Roanna Brazier
