The weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are called ADVENT, which means "coming". During this time, we prepare ourselves for the coming of the Christ Child. The sanctuary fills with poinsettias. A Chrismon tree is covered with white and gold Christian symbols, and our children present their annual Advent Play. A small manger scene in the sanctuary begins with an empty stable. As the weeks pass, the stable slowly fills with animals, Mary and Joseph, shepherds, angels - and finally the baby Jesus in a manger!
POINSETTIAS decorate the sanctuary throughout the Advent season. The plants are also taken to our shut-ins, and they may be dedicated in honor of a loved one. If you would like to donate poinsettias, click here.
Our LIVE NATIVITY is held on December 17th from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Join us as we all travel to Bethlehem and re-enact the Christmas story. A stable on the grounds of Woodforest Presbyterian Church shelters goats, sheep, a camel - and the manger of course! Crowns, wings, and shepherds' crooks are provided for shepherds, angels and wise men of all ages and sizes.
At 3:00 pm on CHRISTMAS EVE, we blend candles, carols and the Christmas story together in candlelight worship.
CHRISTMAS WORSHIP & BRUNCH - At 10:00 am on Christmas morning, we share the joy of Christ's birth with worship and a simple Christmas Brunch.
