From Rev Iain Baxter, All Saints Chiang Mai
This Saturday at 7 pm
Christmas is upon us, and we will begin our celebration of the Christmas Season at 7 p.m. this Saturday as we gather in the chapel of Chiang Mai Christian School. The Festival of Carols should be a wonderful event – please invite your friends but make sure they get there early for a seat!
If you are able to help with the set-up, please meet at All Saints at 10 a.m. this Saturday to help with transportation and the decoration of the chapel at the school! We need to move the organ, the sound system, lights, chairs, an altar, and many smaller decorations, etc. We have a small truck coming to help move the larger items, but many hands will help make things easier!
Later, please be at the chapel by 6 p.m. if you can, to help with ushering, etc! After the service, we will then need help with refreshments and then taking down decorations and moving everything back to All Saints!
Our singing will be led by the Lannacapella Choir!
After an exciting, and probably exhausting, Saturday night, we will then gather once again at 11 a.m. Sunday morning to mark the Third Sunday of Advent.
Our readings this Sunday will be Zephaniah 3:14-20, Philippians 4:4-7, and Matthew 1:18-25, and we will be singing the carols Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus; Of the Father’s Love Begotten; and O Come, O Come, Emmanuel!
Past services and sermons can be viewed via the All Saints audio-visual page!
If you don’t know the way to All Saints, directions can be found on the Where and When page.
Christmas 2018 at All Saints
Many Christmas events coming up! These will again include a sit-down Christmas lunch – the turkeys are already sitting in the freezer! The meal is free but people will need to sign-up so we can calculate numbers, and people will be allocated things to bring! Please sign-up this week as Christmas Day is almost upon us! Donations towards the cost of the turkeys would also be welcome. (They were $100 each!)
Most people get to hear about us via the internet or by word of mouth, so please feel free to pass on this email to others. All are welcome to join us as we celebrate the Christ of Christmas! We hope to see you soon and that you will enjoy worshiping with us,
