Worship at FUMC for December

The first four Sundays in December are the Sundays of the season of Advent, a time observed in many Christian churches when we wait expectantly and prepare for the birth of Jesus. Its the time to move to Year C if you would like to read through the lectionary this new year. Advent, the time when, in our worship services we light one candle each week, symbolizing the four virtues Jesus brings us, Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace. One day within the Advent season, on December 18, we will hold a special worship service, Blue Christmas. Its a service especially for those who are dealing with a loss this holiday season. Invite your friends and neighbors who may find this service helpful as we prepare for Christmas. If you are looking for a different way to start thinking about the Christmas holiday, try the YouTube presentation at Its a video clip, dated in approach and quality, from the Amos n Andy Christmas Show of December 1952.

Pastor Sundar Samuel will be preaching each Sunday in the month. Our early service is held at 8:30 am and meets in the multi-purpose room. That service is about one-half hour long.

Hawthorne Ridge

Sunday, October 14, marked the date of our first worship service held at Hawthorne Ridge, an Eddy senior living community in East Greenbush. Deb Samuel has been facilitating a weekly Bible study at Hawthorne Ridge for many months, and as the number of participants increased so did the requests for a worship service to be held at their facility. After consultation with the Hawthorne Ridge administration, Pastor Sundar and Deb developed plans for a service to be held every Sunday at 1:00 p.m.. The October 14 service included prayer, scripture, a message from the Pastor, and hymns accompanied by FUMC organist Jackie Krahforst, The 26 residents who attended were enthusiastic in their singing and in their response to the new ministry! They expect attendance to grow as people become more aware of the service and as winter sets in. Pastor Sundar is encouraging all the people in our congregation to volunteer at this service at least twice a year to greet and meet the Hawthorne Ridge residents.

Other off site ministries facilitated by staff and members of our church include a monthly Communion service at Riverside Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing in Castleton and a monthly worship service at Rosewood Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Rensselaer.

Sacrament of Communion
