Church-y Stuff Coming Up for Your Christmas Week
This weekend and next are filled with church-y stuff. As you can tell, the Owl is not involved in church-y stuff but does love the pageantry and storytelling. The following list of events is not exhaustive and may be updated if I feel like it. It’s a blog, folks, need I remind you? There will be an additional post covering Christmas Eve happenings, but not yet.
Technically not a church-y stuff event is the Skylark “A Christmas Carol” at First Parish Church on Friday, December 16. I think you all know the story but Skylark has made it all new. Check out the Owl post on it here. If you have not met them, the Grands will be attending which is reason enough to go.
Saturday, December 17:
A Very Merry Singalong with the United Methodist Church. On Saturday the 17th of December at 5pm, you are invited to join UMC outside at the church for a very, merry sing-along! Sing Christmas carols and songs together and enjoy the company of your friends, family, and neighbors. This is a free event and excellent singing voices are NOT required. Hot chocolate and treats available. 377 North Avenue.
Sunday, December 18:
Church School Christmas Pageant at First Parish Church of Weston. I live for Church School pageants, especially those where I know the kids (and I know two of the kings at least, class of 2025, hello!). I think Brother Owl was a sheep once when we lived in New York. I need the Grand Owl to confirm. This is the “Christmas story” as interpreted by youth and children, and will take place during Sunday Services at 10:30 am. If you have any questions about the First Parish Christmas Pageant (including the rehearsal schedule!), contact Sarah at SarahNapoline@FirstParishWeston.org.
Christmas Services at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. December 18 from 11-12 PM, featuring the choir, musical performances, and readings. Visitors welcome. The CJCLDS is located at 150 Brown Street.
Christmas Pops and Sing-Along Concert at St. Julia’s Catholic Church of Weston, Parish Center Hall. Please join the parish community for a lively concert of favorite seasonal and holiday songs led by talented parish choir vocalists and musicians. Sunday, December 18 at 3 pm. Refreshments will be served. St. Julia’s is located at 347 Boston Post Road.
Lessons and Carols at St. Anne’s-in-the-Fields. This is the best-named church of any in metrowest, and apt as it overlooks the Codman fields of Lincoln. On Sunday, December 18 at 5 pm., join St. Anne’s and your norther neighbors at this joyful service telling the Christmas story through scripture and music. Please join for both the service and the. festive reception that will follow. St. Anne’s welcomes everyone from all walks of life and faith. For more information, visit https://www.stanneslincoln.org/. The church is located at 147 Concord Road in Lincoln. Any questions? Please contact Jennie Cook at email@example.com.
December 24 Christmas Eve Services:
So far, the Owl is aware of services at First Parish (reservations required), St. Peter’s, United Methodist, St. Julia’s and St. Anne’s. If anyone would like to include their organization’s services in the upcoming post on Christmas Eve “churchy stuff”, please send information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
