4th Sunday of Advent


December 19, 2014         

"Your love, O Lord, for ever will I sing;

from age to age my mouth will proclaim your faithfulness"  

                                Dr. Scott McCormick

Our dear friend, and long-time member of St Alban's, Dr. Scott McCormick died last Saturday. 

His wife had asked for no pastor, no service.  To respect her wishes, there will only be a viewing at Butler Funeral Home in Bolivar, tomorrow at 1:00 pm for those who would like to attend.

St Alban's will additionally celebrate the Rite of Christian burial on this Sunday, December 21, during our regular service time at 10:30 with Scott's daughters from out of town, who loved him and us, and who know how important St Alban's was to Scott.

Please come and let them know what Scott meant to you.


                       December 21, Advent 4

     At 9:30 today we will all help put up Christmas trees in front of the upstairs windows - the large one facing the street, and smaller ones in the windows facing into the nave. 


       Wednesday evening, December 24, Christmas Eve 


The Eucharist will begin at 5:30 pm - It will already be dark, and our children will be able to get home and to bed at a reasonable time.


    We need: poinsettias - red, or any color, any size - You may bring them to Church any time from Dec 21 on.


     We will have lots of carols and beautiful candlight, the joyful mystery of God's love, and all our own voices singing, and a very short homily (what more can we really say than what God has "said" in action; in choosing to become one of us?)


               1 Christmas - Sunday December 28

     Children DO NEED TO COME FOR Sunday School - to prepare for the pageant! 

      Festive coffee hour after Eucharist (Bring whatever left-over Christmas goodies you want to share!) 


2 Christmas - Epiphany party - Sunday, January 4

Potluck dinner and Christmas/Epiphany party after church.

Three Kings cake and gifts - Everyone bring a wrapped gift, around $5.00 gift to exchange - the sillier the better!

Advent 4 
10:30 AM
Readings today reflect both the week's Advent theme of waiting and Mary's "let it be done to me!",
and the joy of eternal life with God,
towards which our Advent hope points,
and into which Scott has now moved.
