Advent Season at EPC

ADVENT BEGINS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 30
It's time to start preparing our hearts for Christmas!

At EPC the four weeks of Advent are a very special time,
and we have many things going on to help us prepare our hearts
to celebrate the birth of our Wonderful Counselor,
Almighty God, Everlasting Father, King of Kings.

WORSHIP
A special Advent message series, "The Messiah" will be presented
Sundays Nov. 30, Dec. 7 and Dec. 14 – at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.
And Saturdays Dec. 6, 13 and 20 – at 5:30 p.m.


CANTATA
The EPC traditional choir will present "Appalachian Winter"
A Cantata for Christmas

Sunday, December 21 
at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.



CLASSES 
PatRussell will be leading a new, four-part
adult Sunday School class, studying "The Messiah"
to coordinate with the sermon series
Sundays Nov. 30, Dec. 7, 14 and 21 at 9:15 
in the manse.

The existing adult Sunday School class at 10:15
will also study "The Messiah."


The youth will enjoy a special Advent Study, too...

Sundays Nov. 30, Dec. 7, 14 and 21 at 9:15 in the manse. Tom Olmos will lead the class and talk about why we celebrate Christmas. What's a mistletoe?"
Why do we do this stuff?




And the whole thing comes to a crescendo 
on Christmas Eve,

Following Christmas, 
on Saturday December 27th, there will be 
no Saturday Evening service.
