Sunday in Worship…
This Sunday, December 5, is the Second Sunday of Advent and Communion Sunday. Our scripture reading is Luke 3: 1-6, which will be read by Maddie; she, her brother Mason, and grandfather Mark Arend will be lighting the Advent candles. Both the vocal and bell choirs will share their musical gifts with us this Sunday. The choir anthem is “Under the Stars” by Anna Driscoll and George F. Reynolds, and the bells will be playing “A Pastoral Christmas” by Douglas E. Wagner.
Please don’t forget to grab your nametag too!
For those of you worshipping at home, you can find worship online at: https://www.youtube.com/TheHenriettaUCC
If you have prayer requests or announcements that need to be made, you may email them to the church by 6pm Saturday, 12/04/2021. Alternatively, there will be announcement cards as well as prayer request cards which the Deacons and Ushers will bring forward during the offering time, if you prefer.
At the conclusion of worship, we ask that all remain seated during the Postlude. After that, the ushers will “release” folks starting from the back of the Sanctuary coming forward. We want to make sure that anyone who is need of remaining socially distanced can easily do so. Let us all give one another the grace and space we need. I look forward to greeting you in the Narthex after worship, and to seeing you outdoors (weather permitting) for Fellowship Time.
Before I forget, if you have not yet submitted your pledge for 2022, please do so as soon as possible in order that the Trustees may begin working in the 2022 budget. Thank you in advance for your help.
The Christmas Pageant is next week! 😊
SEE you Sunday.
Thanks and blessings,
