A Journey to Bethlehem, December 5, 2021

 

For children and their families…
Kids will have the opportunity to walk along with Joseph and Mary from Nazareth to Bethlehem. They’ll complete a census with the Roman guard before they meet Mary and Elizabeth to grind some grain and sew a quilt square, help Joseph in his carpentry shop, and visit the manger scene to take a photo with Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, and the animals in the stable.
Children can also create their own ornament and draw a picture to remember the Nativity scene. This is an excellent way for preschool and elementary age children to develop memories of Christmas. Moms and Dads will want to tag along, rather than dropping kids off, as children walk through the journey at their own pace.

Want to Sing Contemporary Christian music?

 

My church, Pender United Methodist (about 7 minutes from the OCMS on route 50), has just announced that they’re forming a new choir for contemporary Christian music.

  • Choir members will be given sheet music and an audio file containing a performance of the song that is part-predominant (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). You will be able to listen to all voices, but your voice part will be louder above the others. Not sure of your voice part? We can perform a voice test to determine your range!
  • We will rehearse with the Common Ground band for the two Wednesday evenings prior to the Sunday worship date. Rehearsals will be Wednesday evenings at 7:00pm and should last no longer than ½ hour.
