Our now “annual” Christmas Pageant will take place on Sunday, December 9th. Once again, it will take place in the chapel immediately after the church service, and before coffee hour. We hope you will join us for this traditional celebration of the Christmas story!
The Advent Workshop will take place on December 16. Meet Santa and Mrs. Claus and tell them how good you’ve been this year! Craft supplies and holiday activities will be provided. Come join in the fun! Parents and other adults are welcome to help. Contact Debbie Lyon at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
Christmas Eve Candlelight Service
The Christmas Eve Candlelight Service will be held at 5:00 PM on December 24th. This service is one of the most beautiful services in Canandaigua. Plan to be at the church no later than 4:30 to find a good parking space and to hear the choir’s pre-service music! PLEASE NOTE: Due to our standing room only crowd, and the fact that we have had to turn people away again last year, we ask that all church members arrive by 4:30, and that no more than one additional seat be saved (for your driver) when you arrive. Thanks for being considerate of all!
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Celebration
Again this year, our church will host the Community MLK Celebration, at 12 noon on Monday, January 21st. Students from the Canandaigua Academy Drama Department will provide a dramatic presentation of Dr. King’s words and the elementary school chorus will provide music. Award winners will be announced for the poster contests. There will also be a community choir to sing “Precious Lord”, directed by our own Edie Rice (choir will practice at 11am – please sing with us). Following the event, there will be a light lunch in the Dining Room. We are in need of cookies to be donated for this reception. Please contact Sue Blaker or call the church office at 394-2184, if you can help with cookies. Please join us for this extraordinary event in our sanctuary!
