Christmas for York

 

For the safety of everyone during the pandemic, we have cancelled our indoor Candlelight Christmas Eve Worship Services. 

Instead we invite you,
and your friends and family,
to connect with us this Christmas! 
(with outdoor and virtual options)

 

* Thursday, December 24, 3pm & 4pm (2 times to choose from) at Spry Church Pine Grove Campus (2523 Pine Grove Rd., York) - Outdoor Worship with Communion (each lasting 20-25 minutes). Bring your chair, blankets, hot coffee, and Christmas spirit as we gather outside at our Pine Grove Campus for worship. We also recommend bringing an umbrella in the event of rain. We will socially distance, wear masks, and join in singing carols, hearing about the meaning of Christmas for your life today, celebrating Holy Communion, and sharing the light of Christ with one another (from battery-operated tea candles this year). You'll also have the opportunity to contribute to our Christmas Missions Offering benefitting children in poverty (see details below). If you plan on joining us for this time of worship, we ask that you sign up here.


* Thursday, December 24, 7pm - "Home for Christmas: A Spry Christmas Celebration." Our online Christmas celebration, "Home for Christmas," will feature beautiful music, the reading of the Christmas story from Luke chapter 2, candle lighting (have a candle and lighter ready!), and words of hope. It will help people understand how the message of Christmas speaks to our circumstances as we are all spending more time at home for Christmas this year than usual. Look for its release on December 24 at 7pm on social media and our website! Join our watch party at 7pm on Facebook (Spry Church) or click watch it here.
This online experience has been months in the making. We believe it will be something you really enjoy, and we hope you'll share it with others.

* Thursday, December 24, 7:30-8pm - All-Spry Community Zoom Experience. To connect in real time, we invite you to join us right after the end of our "Home for Christmas" celebration for an all-Spry Community Zoom Experience. We'll laugh together, see each other, share in our Christmas hopes and dreams, and end by singing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" together.

* Christmas Missions Offering. This year, once again our Christmas Missions Offering will benefit children in poverty, half locally through our school partners and half through our mission partners at New Life Children's Home in Guatemala. All money given at our Outdoor Worship, along with any designated gifts, will help us bless children this Christmas. To make a designated gift, send a check or envelope marked "Christmas Missions Offering" to our church, or give online at SpryChurch.com/give
Here's a great gift idea: give a gift in someone's honor or memory! Go to SpryChurch.com/gift and we'll send a card to you or directly to the person or family you wish to honor. This card tells them you gave a gift in their name to help children in poverty.

* Thursday, December 31, 7-7:30pm - New Year's Eve Worship via Zoom. Say goodbye to 2020 and start 2021 by renewing our covenant with God. We'll name the loss, sadness, grief, and frustrations we've experienced in 2020 and release these to God. Submit your words by email (office@SpryChurch.com), mail (50 School St., York, PA 17402), or the bin by lot 2 at our School St. Campus by Dec 30. What people share will be burned on paper and we can watch it burn as part of the service. Join us for this time marking the end of a difficult year and looking ahead with hope to what comes next.
