December 14 at 7 pm
A Candlelight Service of Carols
Will be held in our sanctuary. Many familiar carols will be led by our choir with opportunity for congregational participation; handbells, flute, trombone, and a children’s choir of All Saints’ children will also be featured with the carols. The service will begin in quiet with dim lighting. Gradually as scripture and medita- tions are read and hymns are sung, more and more candles will be lit to re- mind us of Christ as the “Light of the World” and the birth of Christ as the first revelation of that light.
Invite your neighbors and friends.
Hot cider and cookies will be offered after the service in the Parish House.

Bible Study - The Cross
Classes will re-start in January, 2015
Wednesdays - 6:40 - 7:45 pm
Facilitator: Rev Fred Eichner
A study of this incredible subject that is central to the Christian Faith. We’re examining the topic in an effort to confirm why a Theology of the Cross is so important to our beliefs. And we’re seeking to understand better just why God would have chosen this instrument of torture to be the bearer of divine Love.
A few of the subjects being discussed:
Centrality of the Cross (Isaiah)
Why did Christ die? (Matthew)
The Cross in Forgiveness (Romans)
What is meant by “Satisfaction,” Ransom, Justification?
How is the Cross the conquest of Evil?
As always, ALL participants are welcome. We’ve just begun so there is still time to join the group.
Each session stands alone so you can join us now.
Call or talk to Fred Eichner if you have questions (252-586-7863)
