"Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
A new Church Year begins with the start of the four-week season of Advent on Sunday, December 1st. Nain will hold Midweek Advent worship services on the first three Wednesdays of the season (December 4th, 11th, and 18th) at 7:00 p.m. During the Sunday services, we will prepare our hearts for the celebration of Christ’s coming to us by hearing from the prophecy of Isaiah and the Gospel of St. Matthew. During the midweek services, we will focus on Christ’s threefold office of Prophet, Priest, and King. All are invited and encouraged to attend each of these services!
Advent by Candlelight
Sunday | December 8 | 3:30 pm
“Advent by Candlelight” is an opportunity to set aside the hustle and bustle of holiday preparation and focus their minds and hearts on the coming of Jesus. The program offers a time of fellowship and a devotional program which incorporates prayer, lessons, and carols. Decorated tables, delicious desserts and candles provide a delightful atmosphere to share conversation and to prepare one’s heart for Advent.
All women and girls of our congregation are welcome to attend! If you haven’t already signed up, please do so on the sheet in the narthex.
Sunday | December 15 | 11:15 am
All members and friends are invited to the Lydia Guild’s 29th Annual Cookie Walk & Christmas Sale, to be held on Sunday, December 15th in the fellowship hall after the service. There will be plenty of cookies and other desserts available for purchase. This year’s proceeds will be sent to Christian Life Resources.
If anyone would like to bake and donate cookies or other items, they are asked to sign up on the sheet in the narthex. To ensure that this annual event continues, it would be helpful to know well in advance of how many people will be brining cookies, etc. Thank you for signing up as soon as you can!
Donors can bring their items to the kitchen on Saturday the 14th between 1-3 p.m. or on Sunday the 15th before the service.
