Our SHINE Children’s Ministry will start back this Wednesday, January 9th. SHINE is an opportunity for our children to learn how to praise God by singing, acting, dancing, and creating art to be used in ministry and worship.
We will be having a Moravian Love Feast on Wednesday, the 19th, in the Mission and Fellowship Center at 6 PM following our usual Weds. Night Dinner. Join us for an affirming and uplifting program of carols, hot cocoa and sweet pastries!
*This will conclude our Sylva First Wednesday programs for 2018. Wednesday Night Activities will resume on January 9, 2018
This year, we will be having a Longest Night Service at the beginning of the Advent Season. We will gather in the sanctuary at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, December 5th for an informal service of reflection and contemplation about the realities of light and darkness that we face during the season of Christmas.
Here are a few things to remember when snow, sleet, and freezing rain are in the forecast:
1.) Wednesday evening programming will not be determined by local school closings. The church will broadcast any cancellation on Wednesday via an email, our church’s website, Facebook page and in the local media.
2.) If the weather proves to be inclement on Sunday morning, we will make every effort to have church. If that goal proves to be elusive, we will likely A.) cancel Sunday School and offer only Worship at 10:30 AM, or B.) Schedule worship at 2:00 PM in the afternoon.
You may determine the status of our church programming at any time by checking our website, Facebook page, or our local media. A decision will be made at least two hours prior to the regularly scheduled event.
Lastly, thank you for your understanding in advance as we strive to make decisions that are complicated by weather conditions which create different realities in our county due to location and elevation. Overwhelmingly, we are striving to provide continuity of ministry offerings while balancing concerns about road conditions.
We will not be having our regularly scheduled Wednesday night programming this Wednesday, November 21st. We will resume next week, the 28th. Have a happy Thanksgiving!
Join us on Wednesday nights at 6:00 PM in the Gathering Place Room for our weekly Adult Bible Study.
REMINDER: The meal order for Wednesday Night Meals is placed at 4:00 PM on Tuesdays. If you want to be sure that you have a meal, you MUST sign up by this time every week!
Join us for a new Adult Bible Study, "When the Path Becomes Dark", beginning Wednesday, August 22nd at 6:00 PM in our Mission and Fellowship Center.
