In this festive season, Hamburg UMC and the Southern Tier Circuit of Gowanda, Four Corners, and Versailles will be hosting five services between Wednesday and Friday:
Wednesday, December 21, 2022, at 7:00 PM, we will host the Blue Christmas service in the Sanctuary. We will light candles, remember that the season is not always joyful, and share Communion, asking God's grace be with us and all who find this season less than filled with Joy.
Saturday, December 24, 2022, at 7:00 PM, we will celebrate our traditional service of 9 Lessons and Carols with special additions for the youngest in our midst to assist in the celebration, sing the Carol Communion Service and close with candlelight, singing Silent Night.
Sunday, December 25, 2022, at 10:00 AM, come as you are (pajamas welcome!) and join together to reflect on the meaning of Jesus' birth and the Incarnation, lots of singing, and celebrating together!
At Gowanda UMC on Saturday night, at 7:00 PM, Chris Klimecko will lead Christmas Candlelight; all are welcome!
At Versailles UMC on Sunday at 10:30 PM, there will be a Christmas Day service of music and Holy Communion led by Anne Nicol and the Rev. Dr. Carl Nicol.
Come and sing and rejoice! Come and share the joy together! Come Join the Body of Christ and celebrate Emmanuel, God, With Us! Come and find a place to grieve if you need it, find companionship, celebrate, and remember the meaning of the Christmas season together!
Pastor David Nicol
