Greetings and Blessings Brothers and sisters
I trust you are well
Please note the following:
I have been considering congregational Candle Lights for this year with Zonal next year, alternating congregational and zonal. To this end, I am suggesting we have congregational Candlelight on two Days – December 8th and 15th, at 6 p.m.
· The 8th would be for Arnos Vale, Brighton, Sion Hill, Layou, Campden Park, Hope, Spring and Troumaca
· The 15th – Kingstown, Calliaqua, Gomea, Chauncey, Barrouallie, Chateaubelair, Rose Hall and Westwood.
It is expected that stewards (and Musicians/Choir director or leader) will liaise with the ministers to arrange for a service of scripture and songs (lessons and Carols) as is usually the case.
This is the suggestion. Do let me know if you have any contribution to/thoughts on this matter.
December 7th 9.30 a.m – 3.30 p.m. will be our annual leadership Conference (at the Church Hall). This is for all leaders (including assistant class leaders), all officer of the church and its organizations. Others who are potential leaders or interested in attending are free to share in the experience
The circuit Mobile Crusade is scheduled for December 12 & 13 (Thursday and Friday). Details will follow.
Please remember December 1st is the first Sunday in Advent. Advent Wreaths and lighting of the Advent Candles are expected to be part of our Advent celebrations.
Please make every effort to have Christmas Morning Worship a special experience, inviting friends and family to participate. It may be useful to also consider using one of the Sundays before Christmas as opportunity to have a participatory worship experience – a program of sorts.
Christian Coalition March
Let me thank all our members for their active participation and moral support in the March which addressed the issues of the challenge to the Buggery Laws, Breakdown in family and Crime. The March was indeed a resounding success. Please take time to understand the issues – do not be deceived or misled. PLEASE, if you are uncertain about the issues I am more than willing to answer your questions as best as I can. Too many Christians seem not to understand the issues.
