Advent/Christmas season

Greetings to all. We have know entered the Advent season of the church, a time of preparation for the celebration of the coming of the Christ Child, which we celebrate on December 25. The world is an interesting place these days with the ongoing pandemic that surrounds and affects our lives in so many ways. We continue to be able to worship together, some in the same building but many at their homes. And we are thankful that we have this opportunity, this ability to worship together.

During the Advent time we will be taking the time to prepare, to remember and to give thanks. This year we are not going to hold a in house Christmas Eve service. It was decided by the Session of Forbes Church that with the many restrictions and uncertainty going forward that we would continue our weekly Sunday morning worship but not to have our Christmas Eve service. We are planning though to make it available through a video so that we are able to worship together yet apart.

So as we move forward through the month of December let us never for forget the gift of Christmas as found in Jesus Christ.

May everyone have a blessed Christmas this year.
