Christmas Week News

This Friday, December 23, we will not meet.  Enjoy that day of getting last-minute errands done or just having some peace.  We’ll resume meetings on January 6, 2012.

A few announcements:

Thank you for your generous response to the children of the Emmaus community with your Christmas gifts!  May you be blessed as you have blessed others.

The Book Group, open to both men and women, will begin a new book in January, The Great Divorce, by C.S. Lewis.  This is a fairly short book, sort of a vision/dream of heaven and hell, and explores a lot of common and not-so-common thoughts and ideas about God, judgment, and eternal life.  The group will meet Tuesdays, January 17 and 24 at 7:00 PM.  Additional meetings may be added for February.

Blue Christmas Service – Wednesday, December 21 at 7:00.  Especially appropriate for those who are struggling with loss during the Christmas season.

Christmas Eve Services – December 24 at 4:00, 6:00, and 9:00 in the sanctuary and at 11:00 in the Hearth Room.

Christmas Day Service (that would be Sunday, December 25) is at 10:30 in the sanctuary.  You are welcome to come in your pajamas!
