Christmas 2018

It is Christmas Eve!

Worship Services:  Family Service at 4 pm;  Evening Service at 7 pm

We will tell the story of our Saviour's birth

The five candles - hope, peace, joy, love and the Christ Candle

 

Luke 2: 16

"16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.

17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child,

18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.

19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.

20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told."

From all of us at First United

Merry Christmas and May God Bless!
