December 2017


Materials for celebrating Advent at home for adults and families are on the table in the narthex and will also be available during Advent Cheer at Hanging of the Greens.

Sunday school

Our curriculum continues this winter with stories of Advent and Christmas followed by stories about Jesus from the Gospel of Mark. Calendars with the stories we’re learning in Sunday school and ideas for activities and discussion will be sent home with Sunday school families and are also available in the narthex.

Our Christmas pageant is Sunday, December 10, during the worship service. Our one and only rehearsal will be on Saturday, December 9, from 9:30-11am in the sanctuary. Young children and kids without speaking parts can come for the first 30 minutes to try on costumes, sing the songs and run through the pageant.

We’ll have an art project with Gwen during Sunday school on December 17.

No Sunday school on December 24. Our morning worship will be family friendly!

We’ll have one multi-age class on December 31.

Youth Group

We’ll sort gifts for City Mission on Sunday, December 17, from 2-4pm at First Church in Winchester (21 Church St). We’ll meet at PACC at 1:45pm for hot chocolate and to pack up the items donated by PACC and carpool over.

We’ll have our Advent workshop on Sunday, November 26, during Sunday school. We’ll all gather together to talk about Advent, plant paperwhite bulbs to help us wait, and make some crafts.

Our Christmas pageant will be on December 10, during the worship service. Our one and only rehearsal will be on December 9 at 9:30am in the sanctuary.

Youth Choir

The Youth Choir is busy with preparations for the Christmas season! In addition to participating in the Christmas Concert and the Pageant, the group will once again lead Christmas Carols at ACMI, for the annual “First Lights” celebration in Arlington Heights (Dec. 2, around 6pm, see “Chat” for details). A Christmas Caroling event later in the month is also in the works. THANK YOU to Youth Choir singers and families for the joy you bring with your holiday singing
