All Saints Church — Bay Head


All Saints Church Welcomes You!

Welcome to All Saints Church located on the beautiful Jersey Shore. We are entering the Advent / Christmas season when our activities turn to preparing for and celebrating the nativity of Jesus Christ Our Savior. What is it about the seasons of Advent and Christmas that gets our attention? Is it the frenetic pace that we find necessary to adopt in order to get so many things done? That is, buying presents, giving presents, receiving presents, making travel arrangements, sending out cards, preparing for great meals and parties, being with loved ones, and much, much more.

Well, all those things, and more, play into the whole exciting drama of the seasons we call Advent and Christmas. Now, it may be that there are more than a few “Bah, humbugs” out there. That can easily be understood. Yet, even with all those important things that need to be prepared for and done, there’s something even more important for those who call Jesus their Lord and Savior.

Jesus came into this world to save the world. He entered in one of the least dramatic ways possible. There were no fanfares, no carefully planned parties. And, yet, it came to pass. Jesus was born into a world that would have significantly mixed reactions to his presence. Some would fall down and worship; while, others would plot his downfall.

Those of us who call ourselves Christian—followers of Jesus—understand these seasons of Advent and Christmas:

We will gather on several occasions to worship during the Advent and Christmas seasons. On Sunday, December 24, at 9:30 am, we will conclude the Advent season with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. Following that service, the Greening of the Church begins in preparation for the Family Service with the Pageant at 5:00 pm. Later that evening, at 10:00, we will have a festive celebration of the Holy Eucharist. On Christmas Day, we will gather for the Eucharist with carol singing at 9:30 am. The following Sunday, December 31, there will be a single service at 9:30 am. All are always welcome.

What is it about Advent and Christmas? Come and see.

Wishing you a very grace-filled Advent in preparation for a very blessed Christmas,
Robert
