Christmas Pageant December 16

2017 Christmas Pageant

Please join us at 10:30 am Sunday Dec. 16 for The Christmas Pageant!

Carols and anthems, lessons, costumed children re-enacting the Christmas story, maybe a couple of special guests. You’ll want to be there – it will be a conversation starter!

Please invite family and friends. We do have spaces for more little shepherds, angels, and sheep if there are children interested in participating (no practice required, but you will need to arrive at 10:00 on the 16th to pick out a costume). Please send us a message or call the church office if you have someone who would like to participate!

Hanging of the Green – December 2

This Sunday, December 2, we begin our Advent preparation for Christmas with a very special service called “The Hanging of the Green.” We will decorate the church with various Christmas decorations and reflect on how they can remind us of the true message of Christmas. People in our congregation will read scripture readings and also tell the story behind different decorations that we see everywhere during the Christmas season. Children and youth will help decorate the church and everyone is invited to bring ornaments for the Christmas tree. All the hymns in the service are in some way a reminder of the message of each ornament or decoration.

This service marks a wonderful beginning to Advent and hopefully gives us the spiritual encouragement we need to begin our preparation for Christmas. All are welcome!

Lay Academy, November 17 and 24 – Pathways to Prayer

Dr. Faith Nostbakken

PATHWAYS TO PRAYER: Series One
November 17 and 24, 10:30 to 1pm at Messiah Lutheran Church, Prince Albert or join from home!

In our busy lives these days sometimes prayer can get pushed aside. But prayer is our calling to relationship with God. It is God’s gift to us and our response to God. We long for it.

We may wonder how should I pray? How can I stay faithful to it? What are its benefits? How can I know God really has heard my prayers?

Join Dr. Faith Nostbakken in-person and online from Edmonton for a guided tour to PATHWAYS TO PRAYER, Series 1.

We’ll look at what it means to meet God in prayer, how our personalities may influence the way we pray, what Scripture says about prayer, and above all, how we might spend time together in prayer itself.

We will also consider the treasure of the Psalms as the earliest prayer book of our tradition, one that can still be a rich guide and source of prayer for us today in its broad range of emotions from praise to lament.

Together let us grow in experiencing afresh out relationship with God.

Share in the journey of travelling PATHWAYS TO PRAYER.

FACILITATORS: Rev. Cam Harder (Nov. 17) Rev. Paul Sartison (Nov. 24)
