What a year! After another year of the pandemic and many on-going uncertainties, I am pleased to announce that this Christmas Eve we will indeed be worshipping in person! Of course the same precautions will be in place as on Sunday mornings—masks and social distancing.
Our service will begin at 5:30 PM and feature the music of our church pianist Larry Loeber, guest harpist Stephen Hartman, and soloist, Miranda Loeber. You will hear all the beloved scriptures pointing to and proclaiming Jesus’ birth, a timely message; and we will sing carols, light candles, and go out into the night, per our tradition, singing Silent Night!
Everyone, as always, is welcome at CCOV UCC. Know that your pastors and council do understand that you must make your own informed decisions regarding attendance and associated risk, just as you do when flying, going to restaurants, attending venues for concerts and plays, shopping, and so on. We pray for your health and for travel mercies in this busy season and (still) unusual time. Whether in church or at home, may this season of celebrating a baby’s birth from Spirit into man be both meaningful and beautiful.
