Evergreen United Methodist Church - Tidings of Comfort and Joy December 17

Evergreen United Methodist Church - Tidings of Comfort and Joy

We asked everyone in our church family this question – “What brings you comfort and joy in the Advent and Christmas season?” The responses include special memories, encouraging testimonies, favorite scriptures and songs, and family traditions. These heart-felt treasures have been collected and used to create a Christmas program that tells our story as people of faith and hope. We are celebrating Christ’s birth by sharing these gifts with each other and our neighbors.

Tidings of Comfort and Joy will be presented at Evergreen United Methodist Church, 2466 Cedar Tree Road in Appomattox County, on Sunday, December 17 at 6:00 pm. The program will include readings, music, a children’s skit, videos, and a keepsake booklet for all in attendance. Refreshments will be served in the fellowship hall following the service. Come and worship with us in the warmth and intimacy of a small country church with a big, generous heart!
