Check out some of the wonderful upcoming events happening at Colchester Federated Church!
On Thursday, December 20th at 7 p.m., we will take time to pause and reflect during a meditative service just days before Christmas. Christmas can be a time of great joy for many, but also can bring sadness for those who have experienced or are in the midst of loss, illness, or pain. Longest Night allows us to sit with these myriad of emotions with one another in the quiet of our candlelit sanctuary—there will be extensive music, readings, and prayers.
The Christmas pageant will be held on Dec 23rd at the 10 AM worship service. Pageant practice will take place during Sunday School on Dec 2, Dec 9, and Dec 16. We will have a rehearsal after worship on December 16th at 11:30 and it will run to approximately 1 PM. All pageant participants are strongly encouraged to attend this rehearsal, especially those with speaking parts. Sunday School will still be held for those children not wanting to participate in the pageant. They will meet in the Jerusalem Room. If your child would like to participate, please see Nicole Hosford.
Join us on December 24 for our annual Christmas Eve Services. There will be a family service at 5 PM and Lesson & Carols at 9 PM. At both services, we will be collecting a special offering for the ABC and UCC Retired Ministers’ Funds.
