Longest Night Service
December 21 / 7:00-8:00pm
Amidst all the comfort and joy of the season some of us are carrying grief and struggling with sadness. On this night we will bring our loss and pain trusting that the darkness cannot overcome the light of Christ’s love.
Christmas Eve Service
December 24 / 6:30-7:30 pm
In a service of lessons and carols, we hear the story of Christ’s birth and sing with the angels “Glory to the newborn King!”
On Christmas Eve every year, our offering goes to support
the work of Mennonite Central Committee.
The Advent Giving Tree
Every year as we remember the gift of Jesus’ birth, we celebrate with an Advent Giving Tree in the Old Chapel. This year grab a tag (or two) from the Giving Tree and participate in the kingdom of God.
This year our tags will be items that support Street Roots’ vendors. Street Roots’ mission is to create income opportunities for people experiencing homelessness and poverty by publishing a newspaper and other media that are catalysts for individual and social change. Every Sunday at PMC, you can pick up the latest Street Roots copy in the entry way from Nathan. Our Giving Tree will support the work of Street Roots with items from athletic socks to Trimet passes.
