THIS WEEKEND! AMESBURY WINTERFEST, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14th- Come join us as we participate in the second Amesbury Winterfest downtown in Market Square. ASAC will be joining in the fun by providing a hot cocoa bar.  Please stop by to say hello our Amesbury neighbors!

GREENING OF THE CHURCH, NEXT SUNDAY, DECEMBER 22ND- Join the Altar Guild following the morning service to help green the church in preparation for Christmas. A light lunch will be provided. Please contact Mary Hall (978-317-2121 or mary@hallfolk.com for more information.

GIVING TREE: AMESBURY HOLIDAY PROGRAM- RETURN THIS SUNDAY- This program helps provide gifts for children and families in our community.  Following the service today, the gifts will be delivered to the program for wrapping and they will be distributed to families on Friday, December 20th.  

  • Please remember to attach the tag from the candy cane to the outside of the gift- this makes it easier for the program to sort. 
  • You may include a note, a prayer, a card with the gift- be sure it is attached in some way so it does not get lost. 

INVITE FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS TO JOIN US THIS CHRISTMAS!- Please take a few postcards (at the back of the sanctuary) to invite friends and neighbors to join us for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. There will be a special event for our children Christmas Eve, and a beautiful evening of candlelight and carols for the whole family. 

CHRISTMAS MEMORIAL FLOWERS- If you wish to contribute, in Loving Memory or in Celebration, toward the greenery and flowers that decorate the Church, please place a completed red insert in the offering plate. In order for names to be listed in the Christmas Eve program, the DEADLINE is Advent 4 (Sunday, December 22nd) or by mail to the Parish Office by Friday, December 20th. (If contributing by check, please put “Christmas Flowers” in the Memo line.)
