Christmas on the Hill

Christmas decoration

W H A T   T O   E X P E C T

We will have our service right in front of the Wagon on top of Wagon Hill beginning at 5PM. The service will be filled with carols, candles and will help us focus on the reason for the season. The service will end promptly by 5:45PM. There will also be hot chocolate provided.

Safety is our priority. We will make a decision by 8AM on December 21st if we will be on Wagon Hill or at our main building. If the weather does not cooperate we will be moving our Christmas Eve service to the Worship Center for a 5PM and 7PM service. Check back here for any changes in services.

CARPOOLING

While there are many parking spaces on Wagon Hill, it may help us out if some of you can carpool from our parking lot at Durham Evangelical Church. If there is only 1 or 2 of you in a car it would help us out greatly if you met up with some friends and carpooled from the church.

EMERY FARM

We ask those who are young and capable to park at Emery Farm and walk along Route 4 up to the crossing in front of Wagon Hill. There will be a Police Officer directing traffic for you to safely cross Route 4.

WAGON HILL

Those with young families or those who may not be able to handle the walk on Route 4 should park up on Wagon Hill. You will go up the Hill, past the house and follow the parking attendants to park in the orchard.

HANDICAPPED PARKING

There is limited parking by the houses which is reserved for those who are handicapped. There will be a parking attendant to assist you.

EXITING THE SERVICE

For safety and efficiency we are asking that everyone exiting Wagon Hill and Emery Farm exit by taking a right. This will make it safe for those who are crossing and will allow for everyone to get home in a timely manner.

Why do we worship?

This past week October 26, 2014 we asked questions about worship to three of our members. Did these questions challenge you? Did they bring a new understanding of worship? Answer these questions and reflect on what worship really means.

1. How has congregational worship increased your understanding of who God is?

2. What value is there in congregational worship as opposed to private worship?

3. What encourages you to worship even when life’s circumstances are difficult?

Psalm 66: 1-2; 5, ” Shout for joy to God, all the earth! Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious. Come and see what God has done,
his awesome deeds for mankind!”

Join the Children’s Ministry Team

If you love kids and want them to love Jesus, talk to Katie Brouse about joining the children’s ministry team. There are so many ways to serve – classroom helper, teacher, nursery caregiver, and more. Sunday School starts this Sunday, September 14th for grades K through 5 and we can’t do it without you!

Here is a letter from a mother of a child at DEC:

Dear Parents,

A mother has the privilege to carry within her a new creature; to nurture it from within herself like a tree that distributes the sap of life in its branches. As the child grows, the parents have opportunities to be more involved in their children’s lives – to hear what is going on in their hearts and minds and to model biblical principles. From there, imagine what their children’s lives can be in God’s hands.

Raising a child in the ways of God will always be the most significant task that any parent can do. Donate one or more Sundays per month and allow your child to see you live out your faith. Small steps make a big difference. 

In Christ,

A DEC Mom
