Join us Christmas Eve, Christmas Day
The Cape Elizabeth United Methodist Church will have a Christmas Eve service at 6 p.m. at which there will be special music, scripture readings, and a tableau of Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, shepherds, angels and wise men.
On Christmas morning there will be a 10 a.m. service, reflecting on the birth of Jesus and what that means for our lives and faith. Following the service there will be fellowship time for which everyone is invited to bring traditional family breads to share.
The nativity scene on the altar was set up this week by Anita Davidson, who took custody of the nativity when the First United Methodist Church in South Portland closed in 2013. Thank you, Anita for sharing this treasure.
The stars beneath the nativity were created by our Sunday School, using left-over fabric from last January’s Dress-a-Girl-Around the World mission during which women from our church created more than 100 dresses.
The cradle next to the altar has a blanket, also created by the Sunday School and again using left-over fabric from the Dress-a-Girl mission.
Merry Christmas to all!
