CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS PAGEANT

Our annual children’s Christmas pageant is on Sunday, December 16.  The children spend a lot of time preparing for this wonderful pageant. We hope you can join us.

NO ROOM AT THE INN
Cider and cookies will be served Sunday Dec. 16 after church,
with a free-will offering for the Presbytery sponsored
Christmas project, No Room In The Inn.
This year’s recipient will be YESS, the Youth Emergency Shelter,
which provides a safe place for young people who find
themselves without a place to be.

BLUE CHRISTMAS SERVICE

DECEMBER 19 – Sanctuary – 7 p.m.

The Blue Christmas Service is an opportunity for those experiencing Christmas as a time of loss and yearning as much as a time of joy. For a variety of reasons the seasons of Advent and Christmas may be times of grief. While the rest of the world is, at least outwardly, fa-la-la-ing, we offer a time for our souls to be silent and feel the mixture of emotion which may accompany this time. As a part of the service there will be a time to light a candle and sit quietly in remembrance of a loved one or a lost opportunity or a life gone insanely down a path you never expected.  Join us in this time set aside for simple reflection.

INNER CITY PASTORAL MINISTRY LUNCH
We are providing lunch for the ICPM on December 30.

Thank-you to the people of St. Albert United for all that you do
in caring for others at this special time of the year.
