Pause and Pray

Each day at 6:00 pm, pause and pray, knowing that your brothers and sisters in faith are doing the same. "Feel the power" of prayer together.

Christmas Eve Worship:  Barring blizzard-like conditions, we will be holding a drive-in worship service on Christmas Eve.  It will start at 4:30, last about a half hour, consist of hymns and readings.  Please bring a flashlight or flashlights which we will use at the end of the service.  An “Order of Worship” is attached and posted on the church’s website.  You can print it out or download it to a mobile device.  Copies of the “Order of Worship” will also be available at the church.  A table will be set up in the entryway where you can pick them up and drop off your Acts of Worship – Offerings.   Tune your car radio to 89.1 FM to hear the service.  If you are unable to attend, the service will also be livestreamed and then posted on the church's Facebook page


Offering Reminder: To have your gift to Aurora credited to 2020, Treasurer Stan Norland must receive it by Dec. 29th so it can be deposited by the end of the year.  Thank you! 


Communion Sundays:  Don’t forget that next Sunday the 27th and Sunday, Jan 3rd  are communion Sundays so have your bread and wine or grape juice set up for virtual communion.  And speaking of communion, we have some pre-sealed communion cups that contain a wafer and grape juice.   If you would like some, contact Deacon Kim Wilder. Let her know how many you need and she will drop them off at your home.  


January book discussion:  For the month of January, Pastor Dale is leading a discussion on two books by the 20th Century Christian author C.S. Lewis.   The first book we will read and discuss is volume one of his “Chronicle of Narnia” series:  “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.”  The second is “The Screwtape Letters.”   Let Pastor Dale know if you are interested so he can send you an invite to a Zoom discussion.  The first one will be mid-January on “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” and the second one on “The Screwtape Letters” later in January.
