Christmas Eve, December 24th at 4:30 p.m. Lean into the simplicity of the first Christmas. Anything we share from the sanctuary will not meet our expectations. So, we are going to do the only thing God asks us to do, share the Good News, "A child is born for us. And, his name is Jesus 'the savior of the people'".
FM 88.5 KRFY is going to help us do this with the community. At 4:30 p.m., KRFY will play Silent Night to support us in filling the night with music and light. Tune in, wherever you are and if you are at home, grab a candle or other form of light and go to your window or porch and sing.
Please practice social distancing if you are with people outside your family unit. Even outside, wear a mask and space at least 16 apart from people you are not related to, because singing can spread the virus further.
We will not be the only ones joining in to sing this song. NPR classical music stations across the country will join together in playing Silent Night at the same time. Learn how this came about here. KeepingChristmas.org has additional resources for your Christmas observation.
See our Online Worship page on Christmas Eve for a telling of the Christmas story and reflections to help you ponder all these things in your heart as Mary did that first Christmas night.
Thank you Keith Carter, for sharing this picture of her Nativity scene. Send pictures of your Nativities and Creche scenes to Pastor Lori or the office through the Contact Page by December 22nd to be included in the Christmas Eve online reflection.
