The people of MLLC have been working hard to decorate for the seasons of Advent and Christmas. It takes time, love and energy to make this all come together. Thankfully, we have these to share in abundance. We had elementary, junior high, senior high youth working on this, as well as various adults up into their 90s. It is such a joy to see all generations working together on a project. Thank you to all who gave of their time to decorate the church, both inside and outside. There are still some small details to prepare, and these will be ready for Sunday.
Here are some photos of the work which has been done by the crew of youth and adults:
Advent begins this Sunday, December 3, which is the latest it can start. Advent begins four Sundays before Christmas Day. The Sundays of Advent are December 3, 10, 17 and 24. We gather for worship each Sunday at 10:00 a.m. We also gather for worship on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month at 6:00 p.m. – this month that is on December 9 and 23.
Some special items of note for these Sundays:
December 10 – Children’s Christmas Program and Brunch
All are invited to the meal following worship. This is a pot luck meal, with main dish soups provided by the Christian Education Committee. Even if you do not have a child in the program we invite you to enjoy the fellowship and food
December 17 – Carol Service
This annual tradition provides an opportunity for various people in the congregation to share their musical gifts and talents during worship. Contact the church office soon so we can include your musical presentation. Singers, choirs, musicians, musical groups and the like will offer Advent and Christmas music during worship. All are invited and welcome to worship the Lord and to enjoy the music on this special day.
