It should come to no surprise to you that this year's Advent by Candlelight program will look a little different than previous years. Due to the ever-changing nature of COVID-19 including the government mandates, disease metrics, and everything else, the ABC Committee, along with the pastoral staff, have decided that it would be best if the program would be virtual this year. 

Every year, we stress that this program is a day of fellowship for the women of St. John's meant to prepare our hearts for the busy and hectic runup to the holidays. Every year we gather amid the soft glow of candles, the sounds of bells, musicians, and voices raised in word and song. Just because we won't be all together doesn't mean we can't enjoy all these things.

Instead of bringing a dessert, dishes, and table decorations to the school gym, set them up in your own home and invite a few friends or family members that you are comfortable with. Or perhaps you'd like to take this opportunity to share the livestream link with a friend or relative who may never willingly set a foot in church. 

A small group of women, many of whom have been providing the music and AV support since March, will be helping to bring the ABC program "The Greatest Gift" to you via livestream on Sunday, December 6 at 2:00 p.m. The program will also be archived for future viewing if you're not able to watch it live. Please consider joining us as we celebrate "The Greatest Gift"!
