Our Christ’s Church Christmas celebration draws very near with our Annual Christmas Eve Service held at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary.   Worship will be led by Rev. Janice Chilek.  We have enjoyed having her visit and lead worship several times this year.  Rev. Chilek has serves as Chaplin at Cedar Hill Continuing Care Community in Windsor and has served as pastor of several UCC churches including Bellows Falls, VT. 

Our worship service will include the lighting of the Advent Candles, scripture readings telling the Christmas story and the singing of carols. Our Saxtons River Ringers Bell Choir and members of the Senior Choir will provide additional music. Rhythmic Choir members will close the service with sacred dance and will light the candles of the congregation during the closing hymn of Silent Night… hoping that snow remains for us to leave candles in the snow. 

We hope you will be able to join us as we usher in Christmas in its true meaning.  Blessings for a safe and meaningful Christmas day wherever it finds you.
