December is a busy month for everyone, and also at Algiers Methodist Church. There are many opportunities for you to celebrate the Christmas season at Algiers United Methodist Church.
Tuesday, December 6th at 6;30 pm is the United Methodist Men/United Methodist Women Christmas Party. All men and women in the church are invited to their annual Christmas party. This is the perfect way to get in the Christmas mood…there will be a Christmas program and carol singing followed by refreshments. Everyone is encouraged to bring a favorite finger food for the buffet table. If you have children, the nursery will be staffed and ready for them. You do not need to be a member of the United Methodist Men or United Methodist Women to participate; everyone is welcome.
December 11th will be a busy and special day in the life of our church. We will begin the morning at 10:30 a.m. with music by Manzella Sound Band. Morning worship will begin at 11:00 a.m. The Christmas story will be shared along with the singing of carols and special music by our own Choir under the direction of Elaine Dishman, Music Director. Invite your family, friends and neighbors; there’s always room!
In the evening, beginning at 5:30 p.m., the children will present a live Nativity. Retelling of the Christmas story and singing carols will fill the sanctuary. A special visit from Santa Claus will take the activity from the sanctuary into Fellowship Hall. Here we will have a fun time at the Children’s Christmas Party; each child (and aren’t we all children at heart?) will have a chance to visit with Santa and have his/her photo taken.
If you have friends or neighbors with children, invite them to enjoy this time with us.
Please bring cookies or a treat to share (finger food is best).
Next up is our Christmas Eve Candlelight Communion service held on Saturday, December 24th at 5:00 pm.
Then join us for Christmas Day Service Sunday, December 25th at 11:00 am.
