As We Prepare – Advent and Christmas 2017

Dear St. Stephen’s Family and Friends,

One service at 9 AM begins on December 3 and will continue through January 14.  Advent and Christmas will bring beautiful and meaningful worship and holiday experiences.  On December 3 the bells will return and as families and households we can make wreaths.  On December 10 we will witness a unique drama in the midst of our worship that day and celebrate with the Advent Tea after worship.  On December 17 our Christmas Pageant returns as we celebrate as a parish community.  On December 24 in the morning we will have Morning Prayer and Message led by Cindy Willis complete with madrigal style music with recorders and more followed by the Greening of the Church.   And then Christmas Eve worship (one service) at 5 PM with beautiful carols, candlelight, and Bishop Sean Rowe presiding!

Make your plans now to attend all four weeks.  There will be plenty for children and families and an opportunity to deepen our community of St. Stephen’s.

Love and blessings,
