Strings of Many-Colored Lights. I was amused hearing a grandson exercise his feelings of independence and autonomy from his parents’ preferences when he remarked, “I like colored strings of lights on our tree, but mom only lights white lights!” His preference was for a Christmas tree decorated with red, green and gold lights radiating during this “Season of Light!” Whatever your preferences, each of us loves this Season because it celebrates all of our senses-sight, smell, taste, touch, and sound! During each worship service in these next weeks, the messages will focus on how John the Apostle celebrated the Coming Christ through a Story of Light.

A Family Room Christmas. December 14 is our Annual Christmas Dinner after worship. We will gather in Fellowship Hall for a delicious meal of ham, salads, vegetables and desserts. A feeling of heightened community will be experienced around each table. Following dinner, we will continue our fellowship in the Worship Center. Keith Wilson and our Worship Arts Team have planned a special “Family Room Christmas” program. Dimmed lights, a fireplace and candles will help create the warm atmosphere of this season. You’ll hear musical favorites from Frosty the Snowman to White Christmas to What Child is This! Invite a friend to participate in this memorable day of worship, fellowship and seasonal celebration for every member of your family.
