  Christmas Eve Candlelight Worship at 11pm
Posted by: bcraig on Dec 24, 2014 - 10:15 AM
Christian Life
All are encouraged and welcomed to join us on Wednesday night, December 24th, for our annual traditional candlelight Christmas Eve Worship starting at 11:00 pm. This Worship has been part of families in Hanson and surrounding communities for generations and this is a great time to gather the family, being some friends, and share the joy of Christ's birth with the singing of carols, music by some of the Bell Choir members and the message for this season. This service is capped off with a wonderful candlelight singing of "Silent Night" ending with "Joy to the World" as we welcome the Baby Jesus among us. This will be our only service on Christmas Eve, so we hope to see many of you at this special event.

  Unified Worship at 10am the Next Three Sundays
Posted by: bcraig on Dec 09, 2014 - 04:37 PM
Christian Life
In this time of Advent and exciting opportunities that our church is experiencing, the next three Sundays (Dec 14, 21, & 28) will all be Unified Services. This mean we will be having one service ONLY on those Sundays starting at 10am each week. On Dec 14th, our congregation will be introduced and hear the Message from our Search Committee's recommended candidate. A business meeting will follow Worship. The following Sunday, Dec 21st, is our annual Festival of Carols where we have a service of music from all the groups of the church and seasonal Scripture readings. The Sunday after Christmas, Dec 28th, will be the final Unified Service for this year and a time to Worship together after Christmas. Finally, no Sunday School during these three weeks, but nursery services are available. We look forward to sharing and worshiping together in this important time of the Christian year.
