Children are invited to wear their pajamas. Note that we will start 30 minutes earlier (at 5:30 pm) in order to finish up well before bedtime. Donations for dinner are eagerly accepted but not required.
Christmas Cheer: A Churchwide Caroling Event & Christmas Celebration
THIS SUNDAY, DECEMBER 14
Caroling │ Meet in Wesley Hall │2:30 pm
Christmas Celebration │ Wesley Hall │ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Christmas Cheer begins with caroling groups traveling by charter bus to assisted living facilities in our area to celebrate God’s love through song and fellowship. Then it’s back to Wesley Hall for a Christmas party with carriage rides through downtown, a holiday flip book photo booth, cookie decorating and a Christmas card creation station! Please extend this invitation to your friends and family, and be sure to wear your most festive holiday garb! Special thanks to Danielle Walker for chairing this meaningful event.
Practice as a Family: Click here for a pdf of this year’s songbook. We encourage you to sing these carols with your children throughout the week to prepare. Copies of the songbook will be provided to each caroler at the event.
Volunteering: Would you like to volunteer your musical talent as a carol leader, guitarist or keyboardist? Or perhaps you’d enjoy helping children make Christmas cards or decorate cookies? Check out our simple volunteer opportunities and sign up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0c4badae28a5fb6-christmas. If you are volunteering as a musician, we are happy to provide you with sheet music in advance, if needed (see attached songbook for list of carols).
Donations of Warm Clothing: If you would like to bring a donation to Christmas Cheer, we will be collecting warm clothing (new scarves, gloves, hats and coats) for boys and girls size infant through young adult. These donations will go to children in need in Fort Worth.
We look forward to spending time with you and your family as we celebrate the joy of Christmas and spread the message of love and hope throughout our community.
