One church joining faith and action

Advent Season Kicks off with the Hanging of the Greens

The church kicked off Advent season with our traditional Hanging of the Greens service on Dec. 3. The highlight of the mostly musical service is always the Hanging of the Greens and the Nativity story, read to the children by Sylvia Kesecker. Many of the children — and some adults — helped with the greens and the placing of animals in the Nativity scene.

During the Advent season, the church gathers money and food for CCAP during the singing of “Light One Candle.” Don’t forget to bring offerings or non-perishable food items to church over the next three Sundays if you are able for this event.

To everyone who attended and participated in the Hanging of the Greens service, thank you for adding to a joyous start to our Christmas season!
