In case you missed it, I wanted to draw your attention to several special upcoming events outlined in the Advent and Christmas letter circulated last week.
Friday, Dec. 9 – Gift-making workshop for grades PreK-6. Invite your kids, grandkids, friends and neighbors, but donâ€™t forget to RSVP! There are 25 spots available, so email firstname.lastname@example.org to get your elves signed up for an evening of crafting (begins 6:15 pm).
Saturday, Dec. 17 – Christmas Concert. This yearâ€™s presentation by UCUâ€™s musicians and ensembles will take place on a Saturday afternoon at 2:00 pm. It will be in-person only (no live stream). Come enjoy an hour or so of seasonal music on a range of instruments, including a handbell choir.
Saturday, Dec. 24 – Live Nativity. Back by popular demand, we will again have an outdoor live nativity on Christmas Eve (3:00 pm). The animal roles are (mostly) covered, but there is need of shepherds, magi, a holy family, as well as readers and a crowd full of carol singers. Contact Julianne Nickerson to sign up!
Be sure to read the full letter for other activities and worship notes. And pass a copy on to a neighbor or friend along with a warm invitation. â€™Tis the season for being together, and as they say, the more, the merrier!
With prayers for Advent peace,
