Christmas Cantata

Have you heard the story that they're telling about Bethlehem? Have you heard the story of the Jesus Child? Do you believe? Is this what we've waited for? What does His birth mean for a broken world? And - Is He worthy of all blessing and honor and glory? Great Valley's choir and praise team ask these questions and more in this year's Christmas Cantata, "What Child," presented during the worship service on December 15.

Great Valley's take on the traditional Lessons & Carols service, ​this year Pastor Fink will lead us in welcoming our Servant King as we consider Mark 10:45. Worship features readings from God's Word, a variety of solo and ensemble musical presentations, and plenty of carols, culminating with Silent Night sung by candlelight. Childcare will be available!

Philadelphia Homeless Run

PHR is "running food, warmth, and God's love" to the homeless. Once a month we serve Philadelphia's homeless with sandwich prep on Thursday evening and delivery on Saturday morning.

 

This month's run will be Saturday, December 21 with sandwich making on December 19. We are planning to give out coats and gloves as the winter, and welcome donations to distribute as the cold sets in.

You can also support this ministry by purchasing Christmas floral arrangements - 100% of proceeds go to support PHR!
