This is a beautiful way to begin the Advent Season. Enjoy a thoughtful and beautiful service as we decorate our Sanctuary and prepare for the Christmas season. There will be a reception following the service in the Parlor and everyone is invited to stay, visit and finish placing the Chrismons onto the tree. The children will make their own Chrismon and decorate a tree in the Narthex at the same time. There will be and assortment of refreshments of available to sample. Be sure to vote for the best decorated table. This will be a fun time to fellowship with our church family and begin the season of Advent in a truly glorious way. There are a few areas to read and the youth and children are encourage to sign up to participate too. Sign up sheet in in the Narthex.
2018 Christmas Play
Something a little different – we’re doing five performances this time, two in Ciruti Hall and three in SLU’s Wesley Student Center. We hope the out-of- our-own-box performances will attract some folks who are not aware of all the good stuff we do here at FUMC and maybe entice a few to take a closer look.
Here’s the schedule.
Friday, November 30th at FUMC Ciruti Hall
Saturday, December 1st at FUMC Ciruti Hall
Thursday, December 6th at SLU Wesley Center
Friday, December 7th at SLU Wesley Center
Saturday, December 8th at SLU Wesley Center
Food will be served at 7:00 pm and the play will start not long after. The home performances in Ciruti Gall will feature, as usual, a full dinner. The performance at SLU Wesley will only be dessert and coffee. As always, we need bakers and servers and signup sheets are ready and waiting. No surprise there, huh?
