So, what ‘s left to do after a long weekend of Thanksgiving celebrations and ‘Black Friday’ shopping sprees? A Christmas BONFIRE of course! Waretown United Methodist Church is taking the tradition of a Christmas Tree lighting to a whole new level! Join us this Sunday evening, November 29th, beginning at 5pm for the Fifth Annual Waretown United Methodist Church Christmas Bonfire. Bring the whole family and kick off the Christmas season with us! Enjoy hot chocolate and cookies while our DJ plays some Christmas tunes and get a chance to get a picture with that man in the red suit! (parents bring your cameras). See you there!
The world around us is anything but peaceful. Even when we look for peace in our own lives we find more stress, worry, and doubt than anything.
Sundays in December:
- Explore the impact of Jesus the Messiah that God has planned for us and our world
- Discover the potential to live the PEACE of Christmas all year long and for a lifetime
- Practice a faith, hope, and love-filled daily life that brings goodwill to our neighbors
Be inspired and equipped to participate in ‘Peace on Earth’ by cultivating peace in your heart. Trade your crazy Christmas for real and lasting peace and joy.
Unlock your faith potential by practicing key Biblical spiritual exercises.
Each Sunday will feature an important spiritual practice that is not only key in the Christmas story but can be directly applied to our lives today
