Monday, December 16               Vigil for Gun Violence Prevention at 7:00 PM
The Newtown Foundation has asked for vigils to be held around the nation to support gun violence survivors. We will gather in the sanctuary to pray, sing, remember, & hear from local gun violence survivors. All are welcome. 

Sunday, December 22                Special Music shared by the SPC Choir
On December 22nd, the SPC Choir, led by Noby Ishida, will perform Vivaldi’s Gloria during the worship service, accompanied by chamber orchestra. The opening strains of this celebratory work are taken from the song of the angels to the shepherds as they announce Jesus’ birth in Luke 2:14: “Gloria in excelsis Deo, et in terra pax!” (Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace to people of good will!) We hope that you will join us as we anticipate the birth of the Christ child in this musical tribute.

Tuesday, December 24             Christmas Eve Services
                                                    10:30AM    Story and Song Service
We invite you to a new worship service happening on Christmas Eve in the Martha Jayne Room at 10:30AM for about 45 minutes. This interactive time of story and song will be especially engaging for younger ones. There will be exploring of some Christmas symbols, simple carols and tree decorating. If our evening services do not fit your plans for any reason, or you’d just like to begin the day with a time of devotion, please join this informal come-as-you-are (even in your jammies!) service that can provide a great start to preparing hearts and minds of all ages for the joyful celebration of Christ’s birth.
