The First Parish Church in Weston, 349 Boston Post Road, welcomes all to its upcoming Advent services.
On Wednesday, December 11, Senior Minister Thomas D. Wintle leads a Quiet Christmas service in Sears Chapel at 7:00 pm. The idea behind this service is that, for many of us, Christmas this year is a very difficult time. We are told that we should be joyous, but we simply don't feel that way – for a variety of reasons, but often because someone we love will not be with us this Christmas and that is so very hard to accept. But there are others for whom it is difficult because of job loss, fears about health, and many more concerns. This service – a simple and brief time of readings and prayers and lighting candles – is an attempt to allow us to acknowledge our feelings.
Then on Sunday, December 15, we welcome all to morning worship at 10:30 am, during which the Church School will present its annual pageant, where our children tell the story of Jesus' birth, and the Senior Choir will present music of the season.
Later in the afternoon on December 15, the Youth Choir, under the direction of Gwen Coburn, will lead the annual Christmas Vespers service at 4:00 pm in Sears Chapel. This traditional service of carols and lessons is great for all ages and will be a wonderful addition to your Christmas festivities. Light refreshments will follow the service.
