As adults, we get so busy in our daily lives with bills, deadlines and appointments that Christmas can almost feel like a chore and not the magical holiday that it once was. It is important this Christmas and every year to remember the true meaning of holiday. What better way to be reminded than through the spirits of the children themselves?
St. Paul Lutheran Church will be putting on its production of the story of Christ’s birth through a special holiday performance and music service. This special event will take place at the 10 a.m. Sunday worship on Dec. 9, and all are welcome to join. St. Paul’s choral and hand bell group will provide musical accompaniment for the telling of Christ’s story. For more information regarding the children’s service or any other events taking place at St. Paul Lutheran, visit www.stpaullcwc.com, or stop by 1005 Beach St.
St. Paul’s isn’t the only group of children who have been working hard to help celebrate the true meaning of Christmas this holiday season. First Congregational Church of Christ is also producing a children’s Christmas program called “A Mouse’s Tail” on Dec. 2 during the 10:30 a.m worship service. For more information about the children’s service or any other events happening at First Congregational Church of Christ, visit its website at www.firstcongregationaluccwc.org, or stop by 1000 Wilson Ave.
All Webster City churches would like to remind the community to begin the holiday season with festivities at the Festival of Trees. It’s a time for everyone to gather together and get into the holiday spirit through the beautifully decorated Christmas trees or vast table displays, all encompassing the magical feeling of the season. The churches are active in the community event, and everyone is welcome to enjoy the view. There will also be many crafts, such as homemade wreathes, for purchase.
The Festival of Trees will take at Webster City Church of Christ the Bridge on Saturday, Nov.17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 18 from 1 to 4 p.m. All of the proceeds from the festival will be donated to All Cultures Equal to continue its garden literacy and education projects and programs.Spread the Word
