Good Deed Sunday: Sunday, December 5th from 1-3 pm
Start your Advent Season with a Sunday afternoon crafting No-sew throws for our Veterans and putting together Blessing Bags for our homeless. Many hands make light work, so help us spread our joy and love around to those whose Advent time may not be one with joy or hope. Masks will be required and social distancing will be observed. This will be an outdoor activity unless we have inclement weather, then it will be moved to the Social Hall……Following this event, the Tucson Civic Orchestra will be performing in the Sanctuary. So come and craft and stay to hear great music.

Christmas Services: Friday, December 24th at 5 pm and 7 pm
Christmas is coming! We have two unique services this year and cannot wait to spend this special time with you all. On Christmas Eve, we will offer a 5pm and 7pm service.

Our 7pm service will be a more traditional Christmas service that includes a candle lighting, lessons, and Christmas carols. We hope to see you at one of these services to celebrate the birth of Christ!
 
 
Sunday School: First Sunday of every Month during the Service (starts Dec 6th)
Calling all kids, parents, guardians, and grandparents of kids ages 3-12, we are going to be resuming our Christ Church Oneroom Sunday School program for kids 3-12 on an experimental basis beginning one Sunday a month, the first Sunday of each month. How to participate? Simply come with your kids or grandkids on Sunday, December 6th, all kids will be invited to start in the service with us, then after the scripture, they will go with our Sunday School teachers to rooms 14 and 15 for a special Advent Sunday School experience. Pick up will be in rooms 14 and 15 after the service. We are starting with one Sunday a month to see if there is enough interest to move back to a once-a-week program. If you have any questions, please send them to Pastor Beth at pastor@ccumtucson.org.
