This Sunday's Service:

To Drive the Cold Winter Away

Speaker: Beryl Aschenberg and a multitude of First Church Members

SUNDAY, December 21, 2014 

SERVICES: Sundays at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION:
Intergenerational Service; No Religious Education classes, but child care is available for the youngest!

Good fortune attend each merry man's friend
That does but the best that he may,
Forgetting old wrongs with carols and songs
To drive the cold winter away.

                 — Traditional, English Carol

The ancients knew that the winter solstice was the longest night of the year. As the sun begins its long journey back towards the earth, we will celebrate both darkness and light through stories, songs, and puppetry meant to drive the cold winter away. This is a joyful service that individuals and families of all ages will enjoy together… Come one, come all!

MUSIC: Jack Forbes Wilson, Artist‐in‐Residence; The Holiday Choir and Tristan Strelitzer, Choral Director

A Blue Christmas Vespers

Wednesday, December 17

7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

This evening we will offer a quiet, contemplative, holiday alternative to the more joyous holiday traditions.

For many, holiday decorations, the family emphasis of festive gatherings, and the joyous expectations of children highlights loneliness and loss. For those who are less than joyous this holiday season, come, breath, gather your thoughts and cares in the quiet beauty of candles, music, and understanding.

Though Christmas is not always merry, it can always  be holy.
