This Sunday – the Third Sunday in Advent - worship will begin as usual and part way through (before any sermon) Abigail will lead the congregation in a Las Posadas experience throughout out buildings culminating in a traditional Christmas Pageant. The celebration does not stop there – the kids will have a fun time during coffee hour (I will not mention – anything about maybe swinging a stick to break a hanging thing filled with goodies). We will have some Mexican treats as well as some other goodies for all to enjoy during coffee hour while the kids are taking batting practice.
If you wish to donate warm weather clothing – hats mittens jackets etc. we will be collecting them during the pageant to be given to the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program.
Also – if you purchased a Giving Tree Gift – you can bring them in on Sunday.
The scriptures are: Isaiah 61:1-4, 8a and John 1:6-8, 19-28.
It will be a good day and I look forward to our time together.
