Christmas, for me, begins with the children’s pageant at Christmas United Methodist Church (shown here on December 12.) It’s wonderful when children from age 4 through high school tell the story, “A Gift from the Holy Child.”
Next Sunday evening, musicians, singers, and handbell ringers will present “Christmas Across the Globe.” It will be held at Princeton United Methodist Church, Nassau and Vandeventer, on Sunday, December 17, at 7:30 p.m. In addition to parking in the Park Place lot, additional parking is available in the university lot behind 185 Nassau Street.
A Longest Night Service, to be held at PUMC on Tuesday, December 21, at 7:30 p.m., offers prayer, meditation, and reflection for those for whom the holidays may bring painful memories, “The theme of light in the darkness runs through this service which is being held symbolically on the winter solstice – the longest night of the year,” says Pastor Catherine Williams.
Senior Pastor Jana Purkis-Brash will lead the candlelight services on Christmas Eve at 6 p.m. (especially for families) and at 8 p.m. Joyeux Noel!
