Christmas is coming. The goose is getting fat. Hopefully that doesn’t happen to me.
But there is so much more than food to look forward to at this time of year. I love the carols, Christmas shopping, the old movies, candlelight and holly, Christmas pot lucks (oops-that is food), Christmas cards from old friends…all the things that make this time of year so special.
At the Church of St Paul two of my favorite events are the Community Carol Sing and Cowboy Church.
When the United Church and the Anglican Church joined to become the Church of St Paul, Cowboy Church was one of the traditions that the Anglicans brought to the table. It has always been a community favourite and we are all pleased to continue the tradition.
Cowboy Church will be held on Sunday evening, Dec. 15. Start time is 7 p.m, and you will probably want to be early to get a good seat.
We are expecting our two favourite cowboys, Butch Falk and Gordie West. Reverend Isabel Healey-Morrow will be assisting Reverend Brian Krushel. Refreshments will follow.
One week later on Sunday, Dec. 22, at 7 p.m., we will gather again for our Community Carol Sing. This is the perfect evening for those who like to sing along to all the season’s favourite tunes and carols.
I’m not making any promises, but we often have some tidbits of entertainment. Refreshments will follow. This is an ideal evening for the whole family.
On Dec. 24, you are invited to join us for our Christmas Eve Service, which starts at 7 p.m.
The Church of St Paul is located on Barriere Town Road across from the park. We are an inclusive group and all are welcome.
If you need any more information please feel free to call the church at 250-672-563 or Leslie Stirling at 250-672-5706. Merry Christmas!
