    Upcoming Services, Events & Opportunities to Serve

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13th - VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED FOR THE RAIHN (Rochester Area Interfaith Hospitality Network) DINNER.  RAIHN provides an evening meal and lodging for guests who are working or in the process of seeking a job while they await permanent housing.  A 6:00 PM evening meal will be served at Mary Magdalene Church, 1008 Main St., East Rochester.  If you are able to volunteer, please call 585-223-0224 or email Steve Smith at tanman@frontiernet.net.  GET READY FOR CHRISTMAS BY SERVING OTHERS!  ALL ARE WELCOME!

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 15th AT 9:30 AM - SPECIAL CHORAL MUSIC PROGRAM, "Great Expectation" presented by the Chancel Choir accompanied by organ, piano, and violin.  Ms. Heather Watras, Director of Music Ministries & Mrs. Beatrice Benedict, Organist & Pianist.  Like a child awaiting Christmas Day, like a mother awaiting the birth of her child in a stable, like the world awaiting a Savior - there are so many people in our world expectantly waiting for change.  Advent is the season of expectation.  Every day we draw closer to Christmas, hopes rise and joy overflows.  This Advent season, we hope you will count down the days of expectation with us, as we celebrate with music.  ALL ARE WELCOME!

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 21st AT 5:00 PM - "The Longest Night" - A SPECIAL BLUE CHRISTMAS SERVICE.  There are so many reasons that people feel less than festive during the Christmas season -- the loss of a loved one or friend, depression, divorce, illness, stress, anxiety, or loneliness -- just to name a few.  The Service will be mostly Bible readings and hymns that are on the somber side, but still celebrate the importance of Christmas to our faith.  There will be a brief reception in the Fellowship Hall following the Service.  ALL ARE WELCOME!

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 24th AT 5:00 PM - CHRISTMAS EVE FAMILY SERVICE.  This is a casual Service for children & families.  ALL ARE WELCOME!
