From Generation to Generation reminds us of the ways our lives, histories, actions, and stories are interconnected and woven together. The work of God is always unfolding—in and through us. This Advent, may you remember that you belong—to a story etched into the wrinkles of time, to generations that have come before and will come after, to a love that won’t let you go.

Fellowship & Events During Advent

Christmas Caroling
Sunday, December 11, 4:30pm

Everyone is invited to join us at 4:30pm for chili and hot cider. Then we’ll divide up into groups and head out to sing to congregation members to spread Christmas joy! If you have a suggestion of someone to visit for caroling, please contact us in the church office.

Sunday, December 11, 2022

During the morning worship service on December 11, the Chancel Choir will present An Appalachian Nativity. Lewis Henry Horton (1898-1978) based this work on shape-note hymns and subtitled it “A Christmas Folk Cantata.” Horton played an important role in the history of MSPC. He was music director of our church from 1944-1946; in addition, he taught at Morehead State University and later chaired the music department at  Transylvania University for several years. The service will feature the Chancel Choir, and all of our scholar singers will sing solos.

Children’s Christmas Pageant
Sunday, December 18, 2022

Please join us for a special presentation of “Joy in the Manger.”  The children will explore the origins of Christmas traditions that many of us enjoy with our friends and families during the Christmas season. This is a fun service full of singing, laughing and reflecting together during this Advent season.

Blue Christmas Service
Wednesday, December 21, 5:30pm 

Blue? Yes, blue as in the blues. As in “I am feeling blue.” Not everyone is up and cheery for the Christmas holidays. Dealing with the death of a loved one, facing life after divorce or separation, coping with the loss of a job, living with cancer or some other dis-ease that puts a question mark over the future, and a number of other human situations make parties and joviality painful for many people in our congregations and communities. We hold a service of worship on (or close to) the longest night of the year, which falls on or about December 21st, the Winter Solstice in hopes of creating sacred space for people living through dark times. This service is meant to be reflective, accepting of where we really are, and holding out healing and hope.

Mission During Advent

E7 Christmas Shop

Saturday, December 4
On December 4 from 1-3pm we will be offering again the annual E7 Christmas Shop at Maxwell St. We need new or gently used gifts, monetary donations and volunteers. Volunteers help children select gifts and wrap gifts. Volunteers also are needed on Saturday, December 3 from 3:30-5:30pm to set up the shop in Fellowship Hall.

Warm Tree

You’ll find a Christmas tree located in the Lobby during the season of Advent. It’s ready to be filled with hats, gloves, scarves, mittens, and socks to keep our community warm and this winter season.
