As we prepare for the Holiday season in Angel Fire, United Church has made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person worship service on Christmas Eve. Instead of offering a live service on December 24th, we plan to pre-record on December 22, 2020. This pre-recorded service will include the traditional kid’s pageant that the community has grown to love over the years. We will live stream this event for families on the night of the 24th and encourage people to gather in their homes to worship safely.
With the current plan in place, we will extend an open invitation to everyone in the community Kids and parents in the Moreno Valley planning to participate in the Christmas Pageant are asked to signup and rehearse before filming. Please invite children and families who are interested.
In addition to the Children’s Christmas Pageant, we will provide digital space for the churches in our community to offer prayers, music, and homilies on the Christmas Story. These unique additions can be filmed in your congregation’s safety and be submitted digitally to United Church. This digital service is an excellent opportunity to present the tremendous ministries taking place within our local community. This unique ecumenical endeavor will glorify God within our community.
In closing, please let our churches know your congregation’s worship plans for Christmas. If your congregation plans to host an in-person or outdoor worship service, please let us know. We want to make sure we promote your event to visitors in this community.
