On Dec. 15 at 5 p.m., Central Christian Church will host its annual Christmas pageant and Christmas meal.
The children and youth of the congregation will present the Christmas story in costume while singing and playing bells for the audience. Following the pageant, the church will host a special holiday meal of turkey, potatoes and all the trimmings, as well as their special tradition of a candlelight wassail toast. Congregation members, their family and friends and the public are invited to attend this event.
Central Christian has also added a second Christmas Eve worship service this year due to the popularity of the church’s candle Christmas Eve worship. Attendees can now come to either a 5 p.m. or 7 p.m. Christmas Eve worship service. Both services will be family friendly and will include the church’s traditional candle crèche, singing of favorite carols, presentation of the Holy Family, and special musical performances.
Central Christian Church would also like to encourage the Greene County community to learn more about the charitable efforts of Week of Compassion, the relief, refugee and development mission fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada, as they respond to both the recent typhoon in the Philippines and the wave of storms that swept across the Midwest. To learn more about the group’s efforts or to donate to their cause, please visit weekofcompassion.org.
This December, First United Methodist Church in Jefferson will host a worship service every Sunday that celebrates a different aspect of the holiday season.
On Sunday, Dec. 15, the church will host a Christmas cantata performance by the Chancel Choir called the “Festival of Carols.” On Dec. 22, the church will host a special worship service entitled “Blue Christmas.” Worshipers can light a candle and remember those for whom they grieve.
The church will host two services on Christmas Eve. The Family Christmas Celebration will be held at 7 p.m. and will feature carols and candlelight. The 9 p.m. worship service, called Carols, Candlelight and Communion, will feature a worship called “Lessons and Carols.”
