Greetings and Salutations to all my Emory/Alba Peeps!

Christmas is Coming! Christmas is Coming! Just a friendly reminder of what is al-most here upon us. This year will be fantastic. We will do some different things but also some familiar things. Let me give you a brief rundown:
  1. December 1st and 2nd will be our live Nativity Scene on the Corner across from the Courthouse. It starts at 5:00 PM and ends at Seven PM. We will have a live Mary and Joseph and the Baby Jesus. So plan to be there and support our church's plan for Christmas.
  2. December 3. Our worship service will consist of the Hanging of the Greens in our Church. This explains why we do what we do during Advent. It prepares us for the True Meaning of Christmas.
  3. This year Christmas Eve will be on Sunday. So we will have our regular service at 11:00 and At 6:00 That night we will have our Cantata and Communion with Candle lighting. It promises to be a joyous time of music and fun for the entire family.
  4. Then on December 31 will be our regular service at 11:00. We will walk through the Wesley Covenant Service this year to help focus us for the new year.
As you can see it will not only busy but very rewarding. I hope and pray that you will attend all of the services listed. You will be blessed.

Be Blessed
