Since Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday this year, we will not have our annual Christmas Eve night service with the usual gathering on the rooftop for candle lighting, hot cider, and carol singing. We always look forward to this time. But it’s asking too much of our leaders to spend all morning and then the rest of the day in preparation for the evening service. So out of consideration to them, we will have our Lessons and Carols service on Sunday, December 24th at 11:00 am. It will be an hour long, as there will be no Sunday School on that day. Families will join us for the entire service. Afterwards, we will have a family Christmas meal at 12:00pm. Watch for information on how you can help out!
Below is the rest of the December schedule for you and any friends you might bring. December is a great time to invite people in your life to hear the gospel. Don’t let the opportunity slip by.
- Sunday, December 3rd: Advent begins (also the Lord's Supper will be served on the first Sunday of the month). This is also the beginning of the traditional Advent candle lighting.
- Saturday, December 16th: Night Market Caroling. Meet in Room 501 from 5:30 to 6:30 pm for practice before going to Shida Night Market. Bring your dinner with you. Afterward, we will gather in coffee shops for fellowship. Note: the church apartment is being renovated during this month, which makes it impossible for us to gather there.
- Sunday, December 24th: 11:00am. Lessons and Carols Service. No Sunday School. One-hour worship service to be followed by all-church Christmas dinner at noon.
Also, in light of the fact that Pastor Dennis is gone to the U.S. from December 5th to January 4th, here is the preaching schedule for the month:
Sunday, December 3 – Pastor Dennis (communion served)
Sunday, December 10 – Pastor Peter Kim
Sunday, December 17 – Peter Wang
Sunday, December 24 – Kalan Spencer
Sunday, December 31 – Peter Brown
