St. Andrew’s Christmas Eve at 6:30pm; No Friday Morning Service on December 24th
All are welcome to join the celebration of Christ’s birth on Friday, December 24th at 6:30 pm. We will begin our worship together with carols of the church and the formal worship service will begin at 7 pm. Since Christmas Eve is on a Friday this year, we will not hold our customary Friday morning service.
Fellowship Following Christmas Eve Service
All are welcome to bring their favorite holiday goodies to share as we gather for this special fellowship following our Christmas Eve service.
Christmas Eve Offering for Victim of Human Trafficking
Each year, our Christmas Eve offering supports an important benevolence outside the congregation’s normal scope of ministry. This year, we look to support a victim of human trafficking named Temitayo Khafayat, who has significant surgical needs because of abuse suffered at the hands of her sponsor. The realities of human trafficking are worldwide, and we pray that our support of such a case will raise our awareness and commitment to the needy in our community. If you have any further questions about this particular case, please see Eric Asomugha.
Poinsettias for Christmas Eve
As we decorate our sanctuary for Christmas Eve, you have the opportunity to purchase a poinsettia plant. Each plant costs 30 LE. You may indicate to whom the plant has been given in honor or memory. Please sign up on the clipboard being circulated and speak with Pastor Peter, Intern Pastor Paul or Gloria Omanito if you have questions.
December 19th Sunday Evening Prayer at 6 pm; No Sunday Worship During Christmas Holiday
Join us this Sunday evening for St. Andrew’s Evening Prayer at 6 pm. The Lessons and Carols Service will be combined with Cairo Christian Fellowship, a congregation that has been worshiping at St. Andrew’s on Sunday evenings for decades. This will be the final Sunday service until January; our services are scheduled to resume on January 16th.
