Variety of Special Worship Services Also Planned Over Holiday Season
GOLDEN VALLEY, MINN. (Dec. 4, 2017) – Christmas—it’s not your typical story. In fact, there were a number of “misfits” who welcomed Jesus to the world, and all creatures on earth can still celebrate their special place in the crazy, amazing Christmas story today!
Such is the inspiration behind a Community Christmas Party taking place on Wednesday, Dec. 13. The public is invited to this event, as well as several special worship services, being hosted by Calvary Lutheran Church, 7520 Golden Valley Road, Golden Valley, Minn., over the holiday season.
The Community Christmas Party will feature a free dinner—including homemade Swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, roll, dessert and beverage—which will be served from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. A Christmas carol sing-along, activities, crafts, games, a photo booth, a silent auction benefiting Feed My Starving Children, and several musical ensembles will also be part of the evening. The highlight of the event will be a performance of “A Misfit Christmas” by Theater for the Thirsty, a local husband-and-wife performance team who specializes in imaginative, music-infused, family-friendly productions that stir the soul. This grand finalé, including special music and other surprises, will take place at 7 p.m.
On Sunday, Dec. 24, Calvary will hold a total of five Christmas Eve worship services. Candlelight services will be held at 3, 5, 8 and 10 p.m.; a bilingual (English/Spanish) service is scheduled for 6 p.m. A nursery for infants through age 5 will be available from 2:30 to 6:15 p.m. that day. An American Sign Language interpreter will be part of the 5 p.m. service.
Since Dec. 24 is also the last Sunday of Advent, two morning services will also be held that day: one at 10 a.m. and a Spanish service at 10:30 a.m.
On Monday, Dec. 25, a Christmas Day worship service with Holy Communion will be held at 10 a.m.
