It seems that this Christmas, more than ever before, we need to be focusing on love— remembering that Jesus was sent to this earth to demonstrate the depth of God’s love for us, and that Jesus’ primary message was that we should love one another as we have been loved. As such, the Worship Committee is offering a unique worship experience on Christmas Eve morning in which we will “feast” on God’s love and our love for one another.
You are invited to “come as you are” (pajamas, jeans, sweats, etc.) to a traditional Moravian Lovefeast at 10:30 AM in our sanctuary. The Moravian Lovefeast is based on the Agape meals of the early churches described in the Bible in the Acts of the Apostles, in which Christians gathered and broke bread together to signify their union in Christ and their love for one another. It is not a sacrament, but a service of love and fellowship among sisters and brothers in Christ. Beautiful music, prayers, and scripture readings are offered in praise and thanksgiving for God’s greatest gift of love to us—the birth of our Savior. In addition, as in a traditional Moravian Lovefeast, hot buns and milk coffee (decaffeinated) will be served, and beeswax candles distributed.
We hope you’ll stop whatever you’re doing Christmas Eve morning, grab a family member or friend, and come celebrate God’s gift of love to each and every one of us in Jesus Christ. [There will be no nursery for this service.]
