St. Andrew’s and Trinity Lutheran Churches
“Lessons and Carols for Christmas” is the theme of the special services planned for Christmas Eve at both churches. Holy Trinity in Newton plans Christmas worship at 10:30 a.m. and St. Andrew’s west of Sully at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 24. Familiar Christmas carols and candle lighting will be included in both services. The Christmas Eve offering for both churches has been designated for the “Good Gifts” Program through the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America to help purchase tools and animals for a “Family Farm” for a Third World County. Both churches are beautifully decorated for the Christmas season.
No worship services or activities are planned for either St. Andrew’s or Holy Trinity on Christmas Day, Dec. 25. The Christmas season continues with worship for St. Andrew’s at 9 a.m. and Holy Trinity at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 31. The two churches extend an invitation to the community to join them in celebrating Jesus’ birth through word and song at these special Christmas services.
St. Andrew’s and Holy Trinity, congregations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) have been partners in ministry for the past couple of years. The Rev. Dr. Kenneth Ahntholz, pastor, serves both congregations.
