Greening of the Church 2016


Let’s all begin the Advent season with an inter-generational, church family event!  Everyone is invited to the Winterfest/Greening of the Church on Friday evening, December 2nd starting at 5:30 p.m.  This event coincides with Winterfest on Main Street, sponsored by the Downtown Newark Partnership.

The evening begins with a pizza dinner, sponsored by the Worship Team, at 5:30 p.m.

Decorating tasks will begin immediately following dinner.

  • Worship Team personnel assign tasks to groups as needed
  • Children (and others) are encouraged to make an ornament craft for hanging on the Heritage Hall tree. A second (same or different) craft may be made to take home, while supplies last.
  • Children (and others) who are not assigned a task and who finish their craft (or who chose not to craft) are invited to participate in a mini-tournament of classic board games. Rules will be distributed at the event. This is a cooperative tournament – no winners/losers, just fun and fellowship!

Caroling (time TBD) will be followed by hot chocolate and cookies to conclude the evening’s activities. If you are able to contribute a plate of cookies, that would be most welcome!

Please plan to participate in as much of the festivities as your schedule will allow.  Please register here so we can have an accurate count for dinner.
