REZ YOUTH CHRISTMAS PARTY

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11, 5 PM (BEFORE THE 7 PM LESSONS & CAROLS SERVICE)

Theme: Ugly Christmas Sweater!

We’re having a White Elephant Christmas Party for our youth (middle–high schoolers) to round up the year!  Games and all sorts of delicious treats will be available! Spread the word. Bring youth and their friends! 

>> Please RSVP here to let us know if your youth is coming. All white elephants gifts must be absolutely silly with a dash of ridiculousness and no more than $10

LESSONS & CAROLS SERVICE

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11. 7 PM AT REZ

The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols tells the story of Christmas through a series of readings from the Bible. It begins in Genesis with humanity’s fall into sin, including the earliest promises of redemption through Jesus the Messiah. It continues highlighting the hopes of the Old Testament prophets until the birth of Christ, as told by the Gospels. Finally, it concludes with St. John’s unfolding of the great mystery of Jesus’ Incarnation. As the name of the service implies, every reading is followed by a response in the form of a carol or hymn. It has become a beloved Advent tradition and an important reminder of why we celebrate Christmas.

Bring your family and friends! (Childcare will be available for children up to 5 years old). We intend for this service to be an easy on-ramp for those who may be curious about Jesus.

Immediately following the service we will have a Christmas goodie reception, please bring a plate of your favorite festive treats to share!

AMAHL & THE NIGHT VISITORS

The story of this opera centers around a young boy named Amahl and his mother. They are penniless and beg on the street for a living. Amahl is crippled, full of imagination and life.

The entire opera takes place in the small room where Amahl and his mother live. One night, there is a mysterious knock at the door and the guests who seek refuge from the cold defy explanation. It’s the three Magi following the star, bearing great gifts and harboring greater hopes for all mankind. They seek a place to rest for a while, as they have come from far away, and farther they must go.

As the story unfolds, we feel acutely the struggles of a single mother desperate to give her child a better life. How could any child matter more to the world - more to her - than her own?

To see how the story ends, and hear the beautiful score (which is in English, by the way!) you’ll just have to come to experience it for yourself!
