I apologize for not keeping this page updated. Needless to say a lot has been going on and lot is going to go on.
This Sunday we begin the Advent season. This is a preparatory season for Christmas. Our celebration this Sunday centers on St. Andrew the first disciple. Who are you going to invite!
We will start our mid week Advent Worship on December 3, at 6 PM The services will center on the Advent Wreath and the meaning behind them. Our worship will be informal as we gather to welcome the coming celebration of Christmas.
This past Friday we had a Black Friday mothers day out from 10 AM to 4 PM. We did not have a large attendance. We decided that we will do it again to help parents do their last minute Christmas Shopping.
On December 20th from 9 AM to 1 PM (times subject to change) we will again offer free day care for children so the parents can do their last minute Christmas Shopping. Crafts, a snack and lunch will again be served. We will also have some movies for them to watch. So parents if you need to get some last minute shopping done, or just need a break from the children come drop them off at Redeemer Lutheran Church’s Bethel Hall on that day.
Plans are taking shape now for our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day celebrations. Christmas Eve service (candle light and communion) will be December 24th at 7 PM. Come join us as we celebrate the coming of the Christ Child. We are also looking at a Christmas Day service but that will be determined by the congregation.
We also want to have some sort of New Years Eve celebration. That is still in the planning stage but it would be an informal gathering with pot luck, games and movies for all interested.
So come join us for one or for all the activities we have planned in this next month.
Don’t forget to keep the reason for the season front and center, Christ our Savior who came for us all.
