We invite all family and friends to the annual Cheney UCC Christmas Program on Dec. 15. It will take the place of the sermon on that Sunday. On Sunday, Dec. 8, we strongly encourage all Christmas Program participants to be present in Sunday school to practice. There will be one Saturday dress rehearsal on Dec. 14, from 9 a.m. to noon. This includes the choir as well as the congregation’s children. Pizza will be provided for all participants at the end of the rehearsal!

When the Christmas festivities are over, we will resume our regular Sunday school classes, which are held every Sunday for children aged three years through eighth grade. The children are dismissed to Sunday school after the Children’s Minutes, during the regular worship service. Nursery care is also provided during the entire service.

All are welcome to the 10 a.m. Sunday worship service led by pastor David Krueger-Duncan in the sanctuary located at 423 N. Sixth St. Children under five may go to the nursery from 9:45-11:15 a.m.
