The Rev. Jennifer Nordstrom.
We want you to have everything you need on Christmas Eve to celebrate First Church-style during our one online 5:00 p.m. Christmas Eve worship service.
Come pick up your Christmas Kit from church, and receive a blessing from one of our ministers, at one of the following pick-up times:
Thursday, Dec. 17, 5:30–7:00 p.m., blessing from Rev. Jennifer Nordstrom
Sunday, Dec. 20, 3:00–4:30 p.m., blessing from Rev. Dena McPhetres
Wednesday, Dec. 23, 12:00–1:30 p.m., blessing from Rev. Kimberlee Tomczak Carlson
Your Christmas Kit will include as many Christmas Eve candles as there are members of your household, a photo of the beautiful church sanctuary, and other First Church Christmas Eve essentials.
Park near the church and have only one member of your household walk to the porch on Astor Street to pick up the kit. Please be masked and distanced six feet part. One of our ministers will be there to give you a brief blessing, along with your kit. There will be markers on the sidewalk to help you stay six feet apart from other First Church folks waiting for their Christmas Kits and blessings. If Wisconsin is under a stay-at-home order during the pick-up time, this event will be canceled, as will the Christmas Kit drop off (see below.)
If coming to pick up your Christmas Kit from church is not physically accessible to you, please email Shari Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 13 requesting a Pastoral Care Provider (PCP) to deliver a Christmas Kit to you. Please indicate how many candles we should include. A PCP will contact you to arrange a drop-off date and time before December.
