Holiday Worship Schedule 2011-12 (WILL BE UPDATED REGULARLY)

Would you like to spend Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, or New Year’s Day praising God in the country? We have the perfect solution for you! Please pay attention to the dates/times/location of each service. There WILL be some combined services. This page will be updated as the services approach and more details become available. We hope that you will join us for a “Country Christmas.”

 –Thanksgiving Eve Worship: Wednesday, Nov. 23, 7pm. Location: Deer Creek.
Join us for our annual service where we give thanks to God for all that God has blessed us with! Our lay speaker, David Moore, will be preaching for this service. Children are welcome and encouraged to attend! Instead of bringing a monetary offering, bring a canned good that can be donated to a local food pantry as we help to stamp out hunger in Harford.  
 
Christmas Eve Candlelight Worship: Saturday, Dec. 24, 3pm. Location:Mt.Tabor.
This service will be a mid-afternoon version of the traditional “late night” service. Candles, carols, and a message will be featured. A children’s message will be offered for those young ones (or young at heart!). This is the perfect service for those who want “all the pomp” without driving after dark. You’ll be home in time for a Christmas Eve dinner. 
 
Christmas Eve Candlelight Worship/Family Service: Saturday, Dec. 24, 7pm. Location: Deer Creek.
This intergenerational service will feature several traditional carols, candlelighting (or glow sticks for the kids!), and a sermon. A new feature for us this year, the Sunday School children will be putting on a short play, called “The Grumpy Shepherd.” If you would like for your child to participate, please contact us IMMEDIATELY. This service is designed for the whole family–there will be something for everyone. Bring Grandma, Grandpa, aunts, uncles, cousins…even the new baby…EVERYONE is welcome! We’ll finish in time to get the little ones home and into bed in plenty of time for Santa.
 
Christmas Day COMBINED Worship: Sunday, Dec. 25, 10am, Location: Deer Creek. Communion will be served.
Imagine this…you wake up on Christmas morning, open some presents, and come out to church for an informal worship service. “Come as you are”–wear your pjs if you want! We’ll have a combined service at 10am this day. Seriously, wear pjs. Oh…and please bring your favorite gift–either from this year or a previous year. We will be using these gifts during the service. This low-key, informal worship will be a change of pace from the night before. We will gather in community, and celebrate Holy Communion with one another.  Children are welcome and encouraged to attend this intergenerational service. NO SUNDAY SCHOOL OFFERED.
 
New Year’s Day COMBINED Worship: Sunday, Jan. 1, 10am, Location:Mt.Tabor.
Our lay speaker, David Moore, will be leading us as we gather for a combined worship service at 10am. There will be music, Scripture, and a message…as always. Start the year off right with God. THERE WILL BE NO COMMUNION OFFERED THIS SUNDAY, the first Sunday of the month. Instead, join us on Christmas Day or the first Sunday in February (or contact the pastor if you would like to request a visit with communion).

**“Regular” worship at 9am (DC) and 11am (MT) will resume on Sunday, Jan. 8, with a guest preacher, Michael Parker, who is a seminary student at Wesley Theological Seminary (Washington, DC), and preparing for ordination as an elder in the United Methodist Church. He is an inspiring preacher–you won’t want to miss this service!**
