A full calendar of Christmas at Church of St Paul in Barriere

Cowboy Church, Carol Sing, Christmas Eve Candlelight Service and more

With the beginning of Advent on Dec. 1, the folks at the Church of St Paul (4464 Barriere Town Road) are finalizing their Christmas plans.

First up this year on the Dec. 15, is our annual Cowboy Church. The service starts at 7 p.m., and we are excited to have Butch Falk, Geordie West, and Rev. Isabel Healey-Morrow taking part. The service will be followed by refreshments and visiting in the activity room.

The annual Community Carol Sing will be held on Sunday, Dec. 22, beginning at 7 p.m. Glenn Andrews will be acting as host for the evening as well as bringing many of his fellow musicians together to form our very own Carol Sing Orchestra. We try to cover everyone’s favourite Christmas carol and all the songs about reindeer, snowmen, and Santa Claus. It is a fun family event with refreshments to follow.

Our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service will be held at 7 p.m. on Dec. 24, with Leslie Stirling and Rev. Keith Peterson leading the worship.

The Men’s Breakfast won’t be meeting in December but will be back on Jan. 16 at 9 a.m. The group welcomes all who would like to join them. They meet on the third Thursday of each month.

Just a heads up for all you shoppers…the Thrift Store and Flea Market at the church will be closed from Dec. 20 to Jan. 7. Yes, that means they will be open on Dec. 19, and reopening on Jan. 7. Our Ladies of the Thrift Store would like to thank everyone for the support through-out the year. The funds raised not only support the local congregations in Barriere and Clearwater, but other organizations both near and far receive funding from the Women of St Paul, including the Barriere Food Bank, Barriere Hospice, Yellowhead Community Services Safe Home, Barriere Anti-Violence Society, Sleeping Children Around the World, First United in Vancouver, the Surrey Urban Mission, the Mission and Service Fund of the United Church, the Canadian Lutheran World Relief Fund, and the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund of the Anglican Church in Canada.

The season’s upon us and we’re busy as bees

with lights, decorations, stockings and trees.

The chocolates, the tarts, the squares and the cake,

we must try them all for the hostess’s sake.

And next year again as we’ve done in the past

for the whole month of January we’re going to fast.

As we finish the season with some eggnog and rum

May we wish you the best in the year yet to come.

Wishing you hope, love, joy and peace

this Christmas and always.
