Services & Gatherings on Zoom:
Tuesday Evenings in Advent: Dec. 1, 8, 15, & 22 @ 7:00-8:30 pm
Draw closer to the Spirit of Christmas. As winter approaches, and the darkness tries to take over, set aside Tuesday evenings to delve deeper into the joy and promise of Christmas. Week by week through the season of advent, we will anchor ourselves in hope, love, joy and peace. Join us as we find the brilliant light that beacons in the darkness through scripture, prayer and gentle conversation. It’s been a very difficult year - let's join together and find ways to make this Christmas special. Everyone is welcome.
Fantastic Friends in Faith Virtual Party Dec. 18 @ 4:00 pm
It's been a long year - and we need to celebrate! St. Michael and All Angels Junior Youth are having a virtual Christmas Party on December 18th, 4-5pm. Email us at email@example.com to register!
Messy Church Dec. 20 @ 4:00 pm
You know the story of the Grinch who stole Christmas? Well he wasn’t successful then – and not this year either! Join us on December 20th for a fun-filled Christmas Messy Church event! Build your own nativity scene (and yes, we will provide the materials!) and find yourselves safely nestled in the heart of community – all through Zoom. For details and registration, please email the church office (email below). Share the details with your friends and families – and if you are out of our delivery area, we will supply you with a list of suggested items to be able to make your own nativity scene too! Register by Monday Dec. 14!
Blue Christmas Dec. 21 @ 7:00 pm
At a time when we feel we are supposed to celebrate hope, love, joy, and peace, it can also be a time full of depression, grief, stress, financial pressures, and unhappy memories of Christmases past. Our Blue Christmas service is a time of prayer, story, song, offering a special recognition of the struggles that many people face during this season. It also testifies to the struggles of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus that are often overlooked.
Christmas Eve: The Christmas Story Dec. 24 @ 6:15 pm
Cookies and carrots set on a plate;
Trying not to stay up very late;
Log in to the story, the one of old;
And hear the first Christmas story be told.
Join us on zoom for a 25 minute story and song to celebrate the birth of Jesus. This will be followed shortly after by our 7 o'clock Christmas Eve Zoom service. All are welcome to either or both.
Christmas Eve Service Dec. 24 @ 7:00 pm
Christmas Day: Christmas & Coffee Casual Service Dec. 25 @ 9:30 am
On December 25 Jenni and Paul Feheley will host a 30-minute Zoom Christmas Day morning relaxed fellowship time from their home. While not a service as such, people will be encouraged to bring a cup of coffee and greet each other with Christmas wishes. Our time together will include some prayers and readings.
Sunday after Christmas Dec. 27 @ 11:00 am
Carol Sing Sunday Service
Virtual Open House at the Feheley’s Dec. 29 @ 7:00-8:30 pm
