 Christmas Caroling at Afton Tree Lighting

We have been invited to go Christmas Caroling at the Afton Tree Lighting event this Friday evening.  Meet at church at 4:45pm for a quick rehearsal, then we’ll carol in downtown Afton from 5:30pm-6pm and then see the tree being lit.  It looks to be a very fun event for the whole family, come and add your voice to the carolers!


This Sunday our year Advent Vespers service is at 4:30pm, followed by a Festive Swedish Meal.  Invite your loved ones to usher in the season of Advent (and Christmas) with this beautiful night.

Holiday Giving Opportunities

We will be participating in two Christmas giving opportunities this year.

As we have done for the past few years, we will be participating in Community Thread’s Holiday Hope program, sponsoring families and individuals for Christmas. You will be able to pick up names from the gift tree in the Fellowship Hall between November 26 and December 9. We are asking that all gifts be returned, wrapped unless otherwise noted, by December 10. You can also donate funds and gift cards. Please visit the giving tree once it is setup for more information.

We also be collecting loose gifts for The Family Place Christmas store. The Family Place allows families to shop for one another using donated gifts. Any gift donations for this can be placed in the designated area near the gift tree.

In addition to donations we are in need of volunteers. Volunteer opportunities include: gift wrapping, gift delivery, Family Place gift wrapping helpers (at Family Place). Contact Kathy Brooks or Nick Bannon to volunteer with Holiday Hope or the Family Place. You can also contact the office for more details.
