Christmas Services at First
Christmas is right around the corner!
We will have our traditional Christmas Eve Service on December 24 at 5:00 pm. This year, Christmas Day falls on a Sunday, so we will have a special 10:00am service on December 25, followed by posole and hot chocolate. Make sure to wear your ugly Christmas sweater for our Christmas Day service and lunch!
The next meeting of the Dorcas-Ruth Circle of UWF will be on December 27, in the Hobby Room of Manzano del Sol Villages at 1:30. Light refreshments will be served and the featured program will be "Remembrances of Christmas Past." For information or to RSVP please call
Carol Kaemper at 505-255-0089.
The Searchers Sunday School
The Searchers, our in-person Sunday School class that meets in the Parlor every Sunday morning at 9, is currently studying All Things Advent: Colors of the Season, Traditions, & Prophecies Fulfilled! Bonnie Hardesty is leading this study and the current topic will end on Christmas morning. Everyone is welcome.
Los Compadres Adult Sunday School Class is currently meeting only by Zoom to accommodate our out of town members and is studying Seeing Beyond, Awakening to the Reality of an Interconnected, Evolving World by Clement Allison. The study has completed the historical evolution of Christian doctrine from the Council of Nicea in 325 CE to the present day and is now focusing on 1st and 2nd century sources recently discovered and translated (Gospel of Truth, Gospel of Thomas, Gospel of Phillip, and Gospel of Mary) to infer what Jesus was reportedly teaching before the Canonical Gospels were selected. Then we will proceed with Part II, which folds in 20th and 21st-century science and other experiential data to enrich our understanding of Jesus's message. All who are drawn to such a study are welcome and are invited to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom Link for Sunday from 8:15 AM to 9:30 AM.
