December 2018

We are preparing to welcome the Advent and Christmas seasons with the Deacons’ Taste o’ Christmas Tea on Saturday, December 1, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. This beloved Crossroads Church tradition features tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and wonderful seasonal treats, all served in our beautifully decorated fellowship hall. The event is absolutely free and open to one and all. For those interested, the Deacons have gift suggestions for the families they are sponsoring this year, and are happy to have you take a tag or two if you choose.

Sunday, December 2 is the First Sunday of the Advent season, which we observe with the lighting of the first Advent candle and the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. Also beginning December 2, join us each day on the Crossroads Presbyterian Church Facebook page for an “Advent moment.”

Poinsettia orders are due at the church office by Sunday, December 9. Forms are available at the church. Call Lynne at 860-442-3693 if you have any questions.

The choir will present “Winter’s Grace,” a Christmas cantata, on Sunday, December 16, at the 10:00 worship service.

We’re planning a carol sing for morning worship on Sunday, December 23, and will be asking people in advance to tell us what their favorite Advent or Christmas carol is.

Christmas Eve worship is at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, December 24. Everyone is welcome to come for scripture readings, candlelight, and carols.
