We have a treat for you in this week's eNews: Pictures of Christmas. We decided to present a visual experience of worship and fellowship and outreach during the seasons of Advent and Christmas this year. We wish we had room for ten times more pictures, because this barely begins to display all of the caring and sharing over the last few weeks.
Lots of traditional elements of Dickinson First Advent and Christmas were missing with you - Family Advent Workshop, Sounds of the Season Christmas Cantata, poinsettias, candles, congregation carol singing, and Holy Communion. But Christmas was still Christmas, Jesus wasn’t missing. We continued to proclaim the same message - To Us a Savior Is Born.
We found new ways of sharing the message, through - Live Nativity Drive-Thru, online Sounds of Christmas, Family Christmas Gathering/S’mores at the Fire Ring, and singing Silent Night outside at the conclusion of Christmas Eve. We reached people we have never reached before with Christ’s message of love and acceptance. Thank you, all, for making this Christmas about Christ.
On behalf of the church leadership and staff at Dickinson First United Methodist, I want to wish all of you a Happy and Healthy New Year!
