Sunday, December 11 - Children’s Christmas Play: “No Room at the Inn”

Following the worship service, you are cordially invited to “meet the cast” and to share in our church’s Annual Christmas Dinner.  We are having a Potluck Menu, complete with kid-friendly Taco Bar and Ice Cream Bar.  Please bring along a potluck item to share at this dinner.  Invite those grandparents, aunts and uncles to see the play in worship and then share lunch together.  It is a time to celebrate with our children, and we want them to know that we are so happy that they are part of our church family!

follow the light, logan church tour

On Saturday, December 10, the Hocking County Ministerial Association is sponsoring the FOLLOW THE LIGHT, Logan Church Tour.  The tour will begin at 6 p.m. and end at 9 p.m.  Participating churches are:  St. Matthew Lutheran Church, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, First Church of Christ, St. John Catholic Church, Trinity Lutheran Church, and First Presbyterian Church.

Three tour groups will depart from three locations (red, green, and yellow tickets) and be led by a tour guide.  Each stop will provide an opportunity to enjoy the music, splendor and hospitality of the Advent and Christmas season.  A van provided by the Scenic Hills Senior Center will be available at the First Presbyterian Church for those unable to walk the tour. 

New this year, George W. Johnson, our Logan Christmas collector and scholar will be displaying (never seen before in Logan) marvelous crèche displays from the era 1890-1920, a different one in each of the six participating churches. 

Tickets are available from Carol Mackey or the church office.  (Adults:  $3.00; Children under 12 free.)  All proceeds will be given to the Smith Chapel Food Pantry.
