Lessons and Carols
“Blue Christmas” Service
If you’re feeling down this Christmas, you’re not alone. While our commercial culture almost demands that we be happy and make merry, many of us are struggling with a sense of loss or grief. Maybe you’ve lost someone special, long for the Christmas of years past, or are just plain lonesome. Please join us for this year’s Christmas Light and Loss on Sunday, December 21st at 5:00 pm, right after Lessons & Carols. We will honor our losses as we affirm the coming light of Christmas in a quiet service of music, prayers, readings, and Holy Communion.
Cradles to Crayons Drive
Our 4th and 5th grade Godly Play classrooms have joined with CIA to raise money for Cradles to Crayons to help other children in the Boston area. Our youth put together dry soup jars to sell at the Village Fair and will donate all proceeds to the organization.
CIA/Godly Play is also organizing a drive with a high need for new socks, underwear, and shoes (infant-teenager) and will bring the items to Cradles to Crayons when they volunteer as a group in January. Please consider donating to this wonderful cause! Beginning this Sunday, a collection box for these items will be in Walton Rodgers Hall next to the CIA room.
