On Christmas Eve, Rev. Dr. Jim Gill lead us in a candlelight worship service for celebrants both at home and in person. This service was distinguished by several special guest musicians, including: Wille B Arenas on guitar; Jeff Hoofard on percussion; Molli McMills on French horn; Erin Allison on oboe; and Laurie Conner singing “O Holy Night”.

A Congregational Meeting was held following worship services on 12/6/2020. At this meeting, we voted on a motion from the Nominating Committee to elect two members for the Session (Class of 2023) and one member as Trustee (Class of 2023). Six members were also elected for the Pastor Nominating Committee, which has the very-important task of finding a new permanent pastor for Woodforest Presbyterian Church. Many thanks to all for their willingness to serve!
Our Live Nativity has always been one of our most popular events, but sadly we had to cancel it because of the covid pandemic. Instead, we held a virtual Advent Program for our children (actually, children of all ages, LOL!) Each day in December, two new videos popped up on our website: One with a short scripture, lesson and song, and the other with a craft demonstration. Craft supply packets were distributed to the participants weekly. Many thanks to Ms. Laurie and Ms. Courtney for this inovative way to mark the coming of the Christ Child!
