Lighting of the Christmas Trees 

Tuesday, December 17th – 2:00pm

Our traditional Lighting of the Christmas Trees and Dedication of the chancel for the Nativity of Our Lord will be on Tuesday, Dec. 17, at 2:00pm. This is a special service for many in our congregation who prefer a service during the day and for those who may not be in town Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Everyone is invited! If you know of someone who does not have transportation to church, please call them and offer to bring them to this service. Or they can contact the church office (952-881-8600), and a ride will be arranged. This service will include reading the Christmas gospel and Holy Communion. Following the service, we will gather in the social hall to sing Christmas carols and enjoy cookies and coffee. We invite you to bring your favorite Christmas cookies to share with others. This is the J.O.Y. Event for December. A sign-up sheet can be found in the library. Coffee & beverages will be provided.  If you are available to usher for this service please contact Jane V. in the office.
