Christmas Eve Services

Volunteers Needed: Christmas Eve Living Nativity

This Christmas Eve we will be offering a drive-thru Living Nativity at the Cardinal Square Campus. We're excited by this fun way to be the church FOR our community. You can learn more at aldersgate.church/nativity

We need volunteers who are willing to help us. Before Christmas Eve, we'll need volunteers to help by preparing the sets and costumes, packing gift bags, setting up the scenes of the living nativity, and preparing additional outside decorations. On Christmas Eve, we'll need volunteers to be actors in the living nativity, to help with final assembly of the sets, to direct traffic, and to greet people as they arrive.

If you'd be willing to help out, please contact Tammy Williams (tammyw@psmail.net) or (989-385-8044) or the Cardinal Square office (989-792-2321). We'll help you find the best way you can help.

Remedy meets Sunday evenings from 6:00 - 8:00pm all year and is open to those in grades 6-12. On a typical Sunday, we begin our time together by raiding the snack cupboard, visiting with friends and welcoming new faces. We then spend time really digging into the Bible together, focusing on how the Bible applies to our everyday lives.
