Hanging of the Greens

This year’s Hanging of the Greens will be held on Sunday, November 25th. Lunch will be provided at 11:30am, and then we will begin decorating after we eat. It is a fun time, doesn’t take a lot of time if we have adequate help, and it is a great way to begin the Christmas season. Sign up sheet will be on the “Welcome Center.”

Church to Participate in Loyalsock Twp. Christmas Parade (Canceled)

Due to threat of bad weather, the Loyalsock parade has been canceled. Thanks to all for the time, donations, and talent put into getting our float and treat bags ready!

A float is being constructed under the leadership of Dave Phillips to represent the church in the Township Christmas parade on Saturday, December 1. It will be a wintry display of Santa kneeling and praying at the manger with baby Jesus. The spectators will be given bags of M&Ms with an M&M-related Christmas poem as well as information about our Advent and Christmas services, along with an invitation to attend. Help is needed with the creation of the float, and walking along the parade route distributing the treats. Please contact Dave to let him know you can help.

The parade forms at 12:30 pm at the Loyalsock Middle School. It moves out at 1:30 from the school, and then turns left onto Loyalsock Drive, right onto Richard Avenue, left onto Lincoln Drive, right onto Westminster Dr., right onto Sheridan Street, right onto Northway Rd., and ends at the Middle School. Please help if you can and bring your friends and neighbors to the parade as we share our witness to our local community.
