Christmas - Hanging of the Greens

Hanging of the GreensWe kick off the Advent season with our annual “Hanging of the Greens” during which we share a meal and decorate the Church for the Christmas season.  Our whole congregation joins together to make the church so beautiful!  The children are responsible for decorating the Teddy Bear tree in the Fellowship Hall.  We also make crafts for the children to take home. 

Christmas Program

Christmas ProgramEach year the Children and the Youth put on a Christmas Program for the congregation.  They either present a play that conveys the true meaning of Christmas or they perform a concert that always puts everyone in the holiday spirit.  Please check the church calendar and join us for this special event. 

Holy Week Celebrations

The children celebrate Palm Sunday by waving palm branches as they enter the Sanctuary while joining the congregation in singing beautiful hymns of praise. Maundy Thursday is an evening service and is a time for communion and foot-washing for our families to commemorate Jesus’ Last Supper.  We observe the stillness of Good Friday with a Tenebrae family service.  This is a service of candlelight to prepare us for the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection in three days.

Easter Sunday begins with a Sunrise Service followed by a light breakfast. Easter Egg Hunt We enjoy Intergenerational Christian Education and then, weather permitting, we have an Easter Egg Hunt for the children on the front lawn of the church.  After the Easter Egg Hunt, we move to the sanctuary for our traditional Easter Celebration.

Rally Day

Rally Day 

In September we welcome a “New Year” of Christian Education with families sharing a carry-in picnic meal after church on Sunday. To raise money for summer camp, we hold a raffle and enjoy a walk/bike-a-thon around the church parking lot.  The entire congregation, whether walking, riding or just cheering on the participants, have lots of fun!!
