Caroling for Christmas
The choir is sponsoring a Christmas caroling event at Crystal Lake convalescent center in Bayville. We'll meet at the church right after Saturday service this coming Saturday December 20. We are scheduled to be at Crystal Lake at 7 p.m.
AND, if you plan to come caroling, we ask that you also meet with the choir to rehearse on Thursday evening, 8 p.m. All are welcome, you don't have to be a great singer! Make a joyful noise.

“Nothing will be impossible with God.”
This is what the angel said to Mary, nine months before Jesus was born. “Nothing will be impossible with God.” It seems clear that Mary believed this. But the angel wasn’t just talking about Mary and her pregnancy. The angel was also talking to Mary about her aged relative Elizabeth, who had been barren, but was now six months pregnant. And. . . .about us, as well. This is a strong theme in scripture, this idea of nothing being impossible with God. It makes sense, of course, God being God. But the real challenge for us is how to understand this truth in the context of our own lives. As you continue your own personal preparations for Christmas this week, I invite you to visit Mary and the angel, and consider the impact of the angel’s words on your own life. Luke 1:26-38
