Advent, Christmas services at Mt. Zion UMC

On Sunday, Dec. 13,  at 11 am and 2 pm, “A Holy Light” by Robert A. Hobby, will be presented in the sanctuary of Mt. Zion United Methodist Church. This carol service includes scripture readings and meditations by Susan Palo Cherwien.   This collection takes a new look at some well-known carols, such as “Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence,” “He Is Born” and “Joy to the World.” Readings by Susan Cherwien are taken from “Crossings: Meditations for Worship” and “From Glory into Glory.” Instrumentations vary from a Brass Quintet, Organ, Piano and Hand Bells.

On Sunday, Dec. 20 at 3 pm Mt Zion will be observing a Christmas Service of Hope and Healing in the sanctuary.  When life brings losses the celebration of Christmas changes.   Blending the reality of loss with the comfort of Christ’s coming, the service includes the lighting of candles and intergenerational participation.  Mt. Zion United Methodist Church offers a unique worship service for anyone struggling with loss during the holiday season.
