Advent & Christmas

Come worship with us on Sundays in December as we gather around the Biblical songs surrounding the Christ Child’s birth, including the songs of Zachariah, Mary, and the Angels. Plan to also join us for these special events:

The Jesse Tree – Sunday, December 2nd, 9:30-11:30am: A special service to begin Advent which recalls the family tree of Jesus and the stories that give us roots.

Hanging of the Greens – Sunday, December 2nd, 6pm: Hanging of the Greens is a favorite tradition at Covenant. We bring in the holiday greens and other decorations in preparation for Christmas and explain their meanings with readings and music.  A punch and cookie reception follows.

“The Winter Rose” Christmas Cantata – Sunday December 16th,  9 and 11:15 am.  This cantata is back by popular demand; it was a favorite from years past.  It will be presented by the Sanctuary Choir under the direction of Dick Frazier with symphonic accompaniment.

Christmas Eve – Monday, December 24th

5:00 pm: Worship with favorite carols and manger story with costumes for children. Come dressed as your favorite manger character or borrow a costume when you arrive.

7:00pm: Worship with choir, candles, and communion

Sunday, December 30th:  Prepare for the New Year. Worship will take place at 11:15 in the sanctuary.
