Worship at FUMC for December

December, and the Christmas season begins as we move on past the Thanksgiving holiday. We start a new church year with the first Sunday in Advent on December 3. If you follow the lectionary, this is the day to switch to the readings for Year B. On each of the four Sundays of the Advent season, we will light an additional candle on the Advent wreath. Then it’s Christmas, and then Watch Night and the start of a new year, 2018. One of the special times of worship in December will be our Blue Christmas service on Wednesday, December 20. Invite your friends and neighbors who may find this service helpful during the holiday season. See page 3 for more information about this service. The complete listing of worship activities for the month is on pages 6 and 7. If you are looking for different way to start thinking about the Christmas holiday, try the YouTube presentation at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjqRZSTYKxY. It’s a video clip, dated in approach and quality, from the Amos ‘n’ Andy Christmas Show of December 1952. Early services will be held only the first 3 Sundays of December.

The Menorah, dreidels and latkes are words you will hear in the households of our Jewish neighbors as they begin the celebration of Hanukkah or the Festival of Lights starting December 12. Also this month, from December 26 to January 1, Kwanzaa will be celebrated to honor African heritage in African-American culture. The newest of the three celebrations in December, Kwanzaa began in 1966. Pastor Sundar will be in the pulpit each of the Sundays in December..

Sacrament of Communion

The Sacrament of Communion is celebrated the 1st Sunday of each month. Our tradition is open communion, which means that all who are present are invited to receive the sacrament of the Lord's Supper.
