Because of Bethlehem

  December 18 10:30 am – 11:30 am

A remarkable gift can arrive in an unremarkable package. One did in Bethlehem more than 2,000 years ago. No one expected God to come the way he did. Yet ...

Event Information


How often do we take time to ponder the meaning of the Season, to prepare ourselves for the Holy day, and not just the Holiday?  This Advent you are invited to pause and be still, to wonder and be in awe of all the Season has to off through this year’s ADVENT(ure) as we prepare our hearts and minds for the coming of the Christ child.   YOU are invited to attend any and all activities as we welcome you  warmly.  Below is a listing of all activities, but please go to our website calendar for a more detailed explanation. 



Sunday Morning at 10:30 am, December 16 – Third Sunday of Advent – Children’s Christmas Worship Celebration

M@M Wednesday, December 19, Dinner at 5:30 pm; Worship Around the Manger – 6:30 pm

Sunday Morning at 10:30 am, December 23 – Fourth Sunday of Advent – Worship Service

Sunday Evening at 7:00 pm, December 23 – Annual Wassail and Carol Sing

Annual Wassail and Carol Sing 

Wassailing is a very ancient custom that is rarely done today. The word ‘wassail’ comes from the Anglo-Saxon phrase ‘waes hael’, which means ‘good health’. Originally, the wassail was a drink made of mulled ale, curdled cream, roasted apples, eggs, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and sugar. 

You can experience Wassail on Sunday, December 23, at 7:00 pm as First Presbyterian Church hosts the annual Wassail party in Knox Dining Hall. Come and sing your heart out to carols of the season and savor the delectable treats lovingly prepared for your enjoyment! 

Monday Evening, December 24 – Christmas Eve –  4:30 pm Prelude; 5:00 pm Worship

December 24th at 4:30 p.m. be sure to plan to attend the Christmas Eve Prelude Musical Offering in the sanctuary when soloists and groups from the church offer their musical talents and abilities to set a spirit of worship and adoration for our Christmas Eve Service at 5:00 p.m.  The author of this article may  be rather biased, but this is a most beautiful candlelight service with the lighting of candles and singing “Silent Night” at the end of the service.  It is absolutely beautiful, and this author will tell you it brings tears to her eyes.  Come and join us on this special night. You won’t regret it.  It is one of the most beautiful evening services our church has.

December 25 – MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

Pastor’s Manna – ‘Tis The (Busy) Season

‘Tis the (Busy) Season  I have always loved Christmas. I especially enjoyed the midnight candlelight service, lighting the candles of all the people who had come to worship. We would always start at 11:00pm and when worship was finished, it was Christmas.  Like most children, Christmas was always a magical time of gifts, family, parties, […]
