Helping You Make the Most of the Season: Christmas and Epiphany at Plymouth Church

The blog is about to take a hiatus for a couple of weeks. Here is what you need to know about the schedule here at Plymouth:

On Monday, December 17, join us at 6 pm in Waveland Hall for The Longest Night Service, an opportunity to explore our own yearning for wholeness.

4th Advent worship will happen on Saturday the 22nd (at 5:30) and Sunday the 23rd (9 and 11). And this is the weekend that the Narrative Lectionary launches us into the New Testament, beginning with Matthew’s account of the birth of Jesus.

Then, on Monday December 24, you have 4 opportunities for Christmas Eve worship:

  • At 5 pm, we have the Family service in the sanctuary.
  • At 7 pm, we are in Waveland Hall with the Saturday Night Band
  • At 9 pm, are back in the sanctuary with the Chancel Choir
  • And at 11 pm we gather in the sanctuary with the Matins Choir

I attend all 4 services, and let me tell you: every year, I am glad that I do. Christmas Eve worship at Plymouth is something you do not want to miss.

Saturday worship will happen as usual on December 29. On Sunday, December 30, we will have one service at 11 am. I will be preaching.

And then on January 5 and we are back to our normal schedule, just in time for Epiphany.

It promises to be a rich season of worship at Plymouth. Don’t miss it!

But the thing is: you don’t need a punk rock song to... Read More
