Advent and Christmas Worship

We will have many opportunities for worship at New Hope during the Advent and Christmas Season.

Every Sunday we’ll worship online and in the Pownal UMC sanctuary at 10:15am, following our worship based on the story of the Grinch.

Tuesdays during Advent at 6:30 we will be meeting both in person in the Pownal church and online for our Advent study, also based on the Grinch.

On Tuesday the 21st, at 5pm (note this has changed from the original 8pm time), we will have a Blue Christmas service. Blue Christmas is a service of contemplation and restoration, remembering that for many of us this season is tempered with sadness and regret, even as the world tells us that we should feel only joy. Blue Christmas is a way for the community to come together to acknowledge that pain and sadness, even in the midst of the season of joy.

We will have two opportunities for Candlelight Christmas Eve services. The Pownal church will be holding its service at 7pm on the 19th, the Sunday before Christmas. New Hope’s service will be on the 24th, Christmas Eve, at 4:30pm.

Please join us for our worship celebrations of the coming of Christ and the birth of our savior at any or all of our opportunites!
