Christmas/Solstice at FPC Elizabethton!

If you are near our mistletoe, join us this week for our Christmas/Solstice celebrations.  It begins tomorrow with worship at 11:00 a.m. for the Fourth Sunday of Advent. 

I finish my series on the myths of Genesis with a comparison of Joseph of Genesis and Joseph of Matthew. Two Josephs. Two dreamers. The myth of providence and power. Our bell choir will lead music. We have a lot of Christmas carols to sing! Here is the rest of the schedule

December 18--Sunday:    Christmas Dinner and a presentation by the youth entitled, "Christmas In Elizabethton 2011."    Dinner at 5:30!


December 19--Monday:    Tidings of Comfort at 7 p.m.  A special service to acknowledge the "blue" in Christmas.  

December 22--Thursday:   Winter Solstice celebration.  Elaine Kolp will lead us in a ritual to welcome the Winter Solstice at 6:45 p.m. 

December 24--Saturday:    Christmas Eve celebration with music, story, candlelight.   The service is at 10 p.m.

December 25--Sunday:     It is a special service when Christmas falls on a Sunday.    It feels--dare I say it?--magical.  The service is at 11 a.m.
