Merry, Merry Christmas to All–

It is our esteemed pleasure to offer Christmas Candlelight Service 2021, on Wednesday, December 22nd at 7pm. This service will be in hybrid format as we offer limited attendance and virtual online live-streaming. Please see the full program including all songs and liturgy attached (pdf). We are honored to have Rev Darrell Davis of Uniontown & Middlesburg UMC sharing, and Min Kathy Duppins-Smallwood of Daisy UMC bringing the message.

Given
it is our Annual Candlelight Service and the format is live and
virtual, we ask each family watching online to prepare a positioned
candle in your home to be lighted at the appropriate time in the
service. We also encourage you to use the program and recite the liturgy
in bold text while also singing with us at the designated times. All
the words are included in the pdf program.

Lastly, feel free to
invite your family, friends and neighbors to join the service by sharing
the program and liturgy, and also sharing the live-stream to
your personal Facebook page when you connect. The liturgy is adapted
from a circa 2009 service, written by Rev Kathie Wilkinson, Mt Sylvan UMC, Durham, NC, published with permission by UMC Discipleship Ministries. You may find it can also be used for your Christmas Eve celebrations with your immediate family.

Until the appointed time, I pray your strength in the Lord,


Amb Blango Ross, Jr, pastor
