Young Disciples Online Sundays
Creating a Nativity Set
Last Sunday, November 29, during the ‘Young Disciples’ part of the service (YouTube and Facebook), we began the season of Advent by starting to create our own nativity set to remind us that Jesus is the best gift we could ever receive! We will continue to build and add to our nativity boxes throughout Advent until Epiphany Sunday.
If you weren’t able to have a shoebox ready last week, it’s not too late to join the fun. Attached are the coloring sheets our Young Disciples will need to finish creating their nativity scene. I can’t wait to see all the original creations!
Christmas Eve Services Online This Year
The Bishop has asked that we not hold any in-person services through at least the end of the year to help protect our congregation and the wider community. The church has therefore decided there will be two Christmas Eve Services – both online. The first will be our traditional Family Service, to premiere on Facebook and YouTube at 6:00 p.m. At 9:00 p.m., the Festival of Lessons and Carols will be available to be seen. This will give the option of starting the video at 11 p.m. if you wish, leading into Christmas Day at midnight.
All-Church Meeting on Zoom - December 13, 2020
Plan to 'Attend'
Roberts Park Church will convene an all-church meeting on December 13, at 1:30 p.m. on Zoom. There will be two main topics. First, the meeting will fulfill the requirement for an annual meeting for Roberts Park, Inc. Secondly, there will be a free-flowing discussion about some ideas to enhance our traditional in-person worship service with a live online presence, known as a hybrid church. The Zoom details will be forthcoming in a separate email. Please email the office at email@example.com to confirm you are planning to attend the meeting.
Advent Study - Online
Wednesdays - November 25 - December 23
As we approach Advent, consider joining Pastor Andrew online to study the book ‘Incarnation’ by Adam Hamilton. The sessions will be on Zoom at 7:00 p.m. each Wednesday beginning November 25, through and including December 23. The study explores our call as Christians to ‘in-carnate’ God in this world through the example of Jesus, who was God incarnate. Email the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you would like to join the group. We will send details of how you can order the book or download an e-version.
Blue Christmas Service - December 21
For some, the Christmas season is difficult if they have recently experienced the death of someone dear to them, are caring for a seriously ill family member, or have someone they love living or stationed far away. Join in on Facebook and YouTube on Monday, December 21 at 7:00 p.m.
