We sing a song of joy as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. At Christmas time we join our voices with that of the angles praising God and saying, Glory to God in the Highest as we pray for peace on earth. Plan on adding your voice to those of others as we give thanks for our Emmanuel, our God with us.
We will again worship our newborn king on Christmas Eve the 24th of December. Come at:
3:00 PM for a Family oriented service—this year the story of our Lord’s birth will be told by the children and youth of our congregation
7:00 and 10:00 PM for our Traditional Carol Candlelight service.
All services include Holy Communion and our traditional lighting of the candles (at 3 PM the youth will have glow sticks) as we remember that Christ is the light of the world the light that no darkness can overcome. As we sing the words of “Silent Night” we leave behind the bustle of the season and in the hush and darkness remember the night so long ago when the savior of the world was born.
Christmas Day Worship will take place on Tuesday, December 25 at 10:45 am.
Telford Community Blue Christmas Worship Service
December 16, 2018
2:30 pm at St. Paul’s
For many people the holiday season is not full of the type of joy and happiness that you see in our TV programs and ads this time of year. For some this is the first holiday season without a loved one who has died. Others might be coping with the trauma of divorce, the loss of a job, difficult or challenging changes in their home, school or job. The Blue Christmas service is a time to come together to remember and comfort one another that in the midst of darkness, Christ brings light. It is a quiet, reflective service and will include an opportunity for each person to light a candle in remembrance of a person or to mark an event in that person’s life.
The Blue Christmas service, sometimes known as the “Longest Night” service will be held on Sunday December 16th at 2:30 PM, at St. Paul’s and is open to the community. This year the congregations of Trinity UCC and Grace Methodist will join us as we share our pain with the one who bore our pain, our Savior, Jesus the Christ. Mark your calendars and plan on attending, tell your friends and family.
