Give your children the gift of giving to others!

There are many ways to give to others through the church this season.  Here are a few:

     Purchase a hand-decorated wooden spoon ornament made by our Sunday School children, to benefit Project Bread.  You will have a life-long holiday reminder of our amazing kids while helping hungry kids and families in Massachusetts.  Spoon ornaments will be on sale at Coffee Hour throughout Advent; reasonable special requests are also taken by Terri Kolenbrander’s class members!

     Give a Christmas gift to a child at Cooper Community Center.  Simply choose a gift tag “ornament” from the wall in the narthex, purchase a gift for that child, and return the gift UNWRAPPED, with the tag, to church by Sunday, December 10.

     Join the wrapping party for the Cooper Community Center gifts on Sunday, December 10 at 6:00 in the Parlor.

     Purchase a gift for a friend or family member who has everything through The Heifer Project.  You will be honoring a loved one while helping a family in another part of our world.  Available through Advent at Coffee Hour!

     Purchase fairly-traded coffee, for your own use or to give as gifts during the holidays.  In addition to coffee, there are fairly-traded teas and cocoa for sale—all make excellent hostess gifts for holiday parties and dinners!  You can purchase all our fairly-traded items at Coffee Hour.

Buy a wreath from our own Boy Scout troop—available at coffee hour, or from Louise Halstead or Dick Coombs!

Invite a friend or family member to worship, and share the gift of our congregation.  For each person you invite—whether they come to worship or not--tape a purple paper Advent “candle” to the wall in the Narthex—and watch how our light grows by Christmas!

 

The Christmas Pageant Returns!

Join us again this year for the Christmas story, told in wonderful new ways by our children and youth.  The pageant will be held Sunday, December 17 at 11:30 in the Sanctuary.  Come join in the fun—and bring your singing voice for your favorite Christmas carols!  If you would like to be in the pageant and have not signed up for a part, please call:

Toddler-Grade 4:  Linda Keltner 617-489-6037

Grade 5-12:  Mike Duval 617-489-5331

 

Nursery Schedule

A HUGE thanks to all the volunteers who have taken turns in the nursery!  Because of all of you, parents of infants and toddlers get to enjoy worship on a regular basis—and isn’t it fun to get your little-kid “fix”?  A new sign up sheet for 2007 is available in the Narthex for all who are interested in taking a turn.

HOWEVER…we still need Nursery volunteers for both Christmas Eve worship services, at 10 AM and 7:30 PM.  If you can offer this holiday gift, please sign up in the Narthex! 

 

Children’s Church Schedule  

There will be no Children’s Church on Sunday, December 17 (Pageant Sunday), or Sunday, December 24 (Christmas Eve).  Children are encouraged to remain in the sanctuary with their parents for the service; there will be clipboards and activity sheets available.  Children’s Church will resume its regular schedule on Sunday, December 31. 

 

Sunday School Schedule

Our Sunday School classes will be on Christmas Break the weeks of December 17, 24 and 31.  Classes will resume their regular schedule on Sunday, January 7.
