Thanksgiving Family Service
For this service, the congregation is invited to bring offerings of fruit or non-perishable foods as a token of gratitude to the Lord for all He has given us (these offerings are distributed the needy after the service). After the opening of the Word, during the second hymn, the people come forward by way of the center aisle to present their fruit to the minister. They then return to their seats by way of the side aisles. One address is given, and this is adapted by the minister to suit all ages. There is no Sunday School and no one on duty in the nursery, although the nursery room is available if needed.
Christmas Tableaux Service
A series of nativity scenes are represented on the chancel by members of the congregation. While each scene is being shown, a minister reads the story it portrays from the Word. Christmas hymns and special music are included. Following this service, all are invited to join in a Christmas Sing and social time in the all-purpose room.
