Advent Worship 2018 – Nutcracker Themes

The Nutcracker was first performed in 1892 and quickly became a holiday tradition, one that continues for many families to this day. In the Gift of the Nutcracker by Matt Rawle (you can pick up a copy at church or download to your favorite e-reader), it takes a look at this Christmas classic in a new way—through the lens of faith. In keeping with his “Pop in Culture” theme, Rawle uses the iconic tale to help us understand God’s greatest gift of the Christ Child and of the Kingdom Christ came to build. Much like Clara, we are all caught in an Advent season, pondering a most extraordinary gift. Over December we shall study Matt’s book Gift of the Nutcracker and Pastor Henry and Pastor Rich will bring messages each Sunday based on the following themes:

  • Advent 1. Dec 2nd, Clara: Waiting for Christmas
  • Advent 2. Dec 9th, Drosselmeir: A Godfather’s Love  (annual Cookie Walk between services)
  • Advent 3. Dec 16th, The Mouse King: Changing Perspective
  • Advent 4. Dec 23rd, The Nutcracker: The Greatest Gift (children perform their musical)

Christmas Eve. Dec 24th: 4pm, 7pm, & 11pm. Details below:

  • 4pm in the Sanctuary, a spontaneous Christmas Eve pageant, carols and candles. This service is for all but geared toward families. Our encounter band will provide the music for this worship celebration.
  • 7pm in the Sanctuary, a service of candles, carols and choirs. A variety of our choirs will be part of this traditional Christmas Eve service.
  • 11pm in the Sanctuary, a service of candles & carols which will close outside with the singing of Silent Night and candle lighting. This traditional service is geared to all, just make sure you wear a warm coat and some gloves because we will finish outside regardless of the weather. Also if young kids are coming it is ok to wear their Christmas pajamas to this service and you might want a flashlight in your pocket or use your cell phone for light just in case it is windy.
