Decorating the Sanctuary for Advent & Christmas!


IMG_6240I am writing on behalf of members of the Worship and Sanctuary Committee who are coordinating the decorating of Sackville United Church for the Advent/Christmas Season.

First, on Saturday December 1st you are invited to gather at IMG_0443Sackville United Church at 6PM for a pot-luck supper and a time of ‘hanging the greens’! Together we’ll put up the Christmas Tree and otherwise get the space ready for Advent and Christmas! Do come and take part in the fun!

Second, you are invited to help us “hold in gratitude the memories of Christmases past” by sharing one or more 4X6 or 3X5 snapshots of favourite Christmas memories. These will be used to decorate the four pillars in the Sackville United Church space and serve to enhance our celebration of this Advent and Christmas season.

IMG_5738Of course your photos will be returned to you. Please ensure that your name and contact information is on the back of each photo. If you’d prefer, you can send digital photos to and I will see that they get printed and placed on one of the pillars.

I do believe that this will be a meaningful way for us to IMG_6253connect with each other and share treasured memories of Christmases past even as we seek to usher in hope, peace, joy and love again this year!
