Advent Wreath Challenge - November 29-December 24
Advent Christmas wreaths and candles for every St. Vincent UCC household has been distributed so you can participate in our Candle Lighting Ceremony each week leading up to Christmas Eve. Contact Pastor Susan or the church office if you did not receive yours. We will accommodate other arrangements.
We are inviting everyone to decorate their wreath however you want - add garland, your favorite Christmas or Nativity figurines, or whatever seems special and meaningful to you. Then take a picture of your finished product and send it to the church office email, firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can post them on our website. We are looking forward to seeing the creative ideas you have to make your Advent wreath your very own, and then share it with us.
Your Consistory continues to meet (virtually )each month to discuss church business and to plan ahead for our future Whether you have been a past member or have not yet served, please consider joining the Consistory and participating in this important ministry. We need a couple more Elders or Deacons starting in January 2021. Contact Pastor Susan or Chris B if you think you might be interested.
