 WELCOME

 THIS WEEK

 AT CHRIST CHURCH

Christ Church is a United Methodist congregation in central Denver. Our faith community takes seriously both the heart and the mind as we nurture the spirit of God. You will find a community striving to be real: combining intellectual questions along with heart-felt experiences to seek wholeness in living. We believe you will be welcomed, loved, and embraced in authentic and vulnerable ways. We believe there is a unique place to find hope in the midst of a dark, chaotic, and challenging world -  at the corner of 7th and Colorado.

 

Our hope is that you will find here a Christian community of integrity that will challenge you and encourage you in your spiritual journey. We invite you to be part of the community we call church.

Christmas Eve is about the light of God coming to earth in the flesh as Jesus Christ. This advent we will spend time wrestling with the darkness of our world and how this light overcame it and continues to do so for disciples today. Humanity longs for, bears, witnesses, celebrates, proclaims, and shares the light of Christ. Join us this Advent season as we Journey to the Light.

Parent's Day Out 

 

Need a chance to go Christmas shopping without the little ones? Plan to have your kids hang out at church Saturday, December 16th noon-4pm so you can shop. Lunch is included. Since this is a youth fundraiser for their Mission Trip, they are asking for donations. An appropriate donation would be $20 for the first child and $10 per additional child. Please RSVP to Rev. Megan at marmstrong@christchurchcolorado.org by December 10th so they are ready to play with your kids!

Order Your Winter Plants by Dec. 10th

 

Take a moment and place an order for your winter plant today by downloading the order form here. You can either scan and email it to Rebecca in the church office, office@christchurchcolorado.org, or bring it with you Sunday and place it in the offering plate. We have some poinsettias then a variety of other plants that will be here for Christmas Eve.

Christmas Eve at Christ Church

 

Sunday, December 24th we will have three Christmas Eve worship services. 10:15am, during our normal Sunday worship time, we will have our Wiggle Friendly and Candles service which will have an extended children's moment along with carols and candles. Our two evening services at 7pm and 9pm will be our traditional Candlelight and Carols services. Please invite your family and friends to any of our services.

Advent

 

Our Advent Seasonal Planning Team created a special Advent Calendar for our community. Each week you are invited to learn, discuss, and take action on a social justice topic. Week 1: Food Justice; Week 2: Racism; Week 3: Homelessness; Week 4: Sanctuary. This pdf has clickable links to take you to additional learning opportunities. You can download the Advent Calendar here. Thank you to Charmaine Robledo and Alli Moore for creating this calendar.

Christmas Cantata

 

Mark your calendar now for the Christmas Cantata and Christmas Pageant Sunday, December 17th during worship. Our amazing Chancel Choir will be joined by strings, brass, and percussion. The children and youth Sunday School classes will each participate in their own way, helping to play the roles and narrate the story of the nativity.

Wanted: Cookies for Christmas Eve  

 

At our Christmas Eve services we will again serve cookies and hot cocoa. This year, to be conscious of allergies, we are only serving store bought cookies. We expect approximately 350 guests between all the services, so we need lots of cookies! We are asking for donations of store bought cookies that have no nuts. Gluten free options are appreciated! Please contact Bobbie Quinn at bayresq@hotmail.com or bring them to church, label and put them in the bin in the kitchen.
