Merry Christmas to each and every one of you! I rejoice as we gather together each week in our place of Worship, and join together in Virtual Worship Services. It is an immense joy to celebrate God’s presence in our lives, as we serve God together.
The Advent season officially began on Sunday, November 27th. However, our Sunday School children and youth began rehearsing the good news of Christ’s arrival weeks ago. Much like John the Baptist, they are “preparing the way of the Lord” so that we may celebrate and experience God with us. I know you are enjoying the special services we have held, and you may wish to consider inviting a friend or neighbor to our remaining Advent and Christmas services. Blessings are magnified as they are shared.
Sunday, Nov 27th Advent 1, we celebrated the sacrament of Holy Communion.
Sunday, Dec 4th Advent 2, we celebrated Mitten Tree Sunday.
Donations will go to the Wainfleet Firefighters for Christmas Baskets.
Sunday, Dec 11th Advent 3, we celebrate White Gift Sunday, today.
Donations of White Gifts will go to Wainfleet Firefighters for their Christmas Baskets, and financial donations will be distributed between the Wainfleet Firefighters Christmas Baskets and the Port Colborne Food Bank.
Sunday, Dec 18th Advent 4, Children’s Christmas Pageant. This will be a wonderful time of Advent celebrations with the Sunday School. You are welcome to bring a small plate of Christmas goodies for our Refreshment time following worship.

There is much to celebrate as love in human form is birthed anew in our midst. May each of you have a blessed Christmas. Thank you all for your beautiful cards, well wishes, and gifts to Ted and I. Please keep well and safe. Merry Christmas!
