The First Presbyterian Church of Delhi will again present an outdoor Living Nativity as a gift to the community and as a reminder of the true meaning of Christmas, complete with music and live animals. We invite the community to join us and even participate! It takes a lot of people to fill the scene, so if you are interested please reach out for more information!
The Living Nativity will take place on Saturday, December 23, 2023 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
If you are interested in taking part in the scene or assisting with preparations please call the church office at 607-746-2155.
On Saturday, December 9, following the Grace’s Touch concert we will be having a soup and salad dinner. We hope you will attend the concert and then join us afterward for some food and fellowship!
We will not be having worship in the morning on Sunday, December 24. Instead we will meet at 7:00 pm for our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service. Communion will be served.
Start your Christmas celebration with joy. The remarkable Grace’s Touch are singing and reminding us of God’s intentions December 9 at 4:00 PM in our Sanctuary at 4 Clinton Street, Delhi, NY. Mark and Ellen Edwards have been singing about the wonder of faith since they got married in 1981. Together with their four children, Patricia, Nichole, Rebecca and Stephen, Grace’s Touch is a county gospel group dedicated to lifting burdens and filling hearts with God’s loving presence. After the concert we will be having a soup and salad dinner, so plan to stay for some food and fellowship!
Jesus is Emmanuel – God with us. No loneliness here, just love and light. Become a part of our family for Christmas!
More about the group:
Their ministry name was chosen “because of the touch of God’s grace that brought each one of us personal salvation and God’s grace that continues to sustain us.”
Grace’s Touch enjoys singing gospel songs in four-part family harmony and have sung in many different venues: churches, Gospel music festivals, nursing homes, senior housing, community centers, patriotic rallies, street festivals and the county fair. They have had several opportunities to sing out of state as well as out of the country!! (Sweden)
It is their prayer that through their songs and their spoken words the Gospel of salvation will be clear and believers will be encouraged with truths from God’s word.
Recently Pastor Jamie was interviewed by Jeff Kellam, co-host of “Encounter,” a production of the Broome County Council of Churches. Jeff is the Minister of Mass Media for the Council. He saw the blurb in Thursday Thoughts we sent on the Toolbox for Living. He was intrigued by it.
Because of his gracious willingness to give us some free advertising, Pastor Jamie will try teaching Toolbox for Living again by Zoom starting Tuesday, September 19. Sessions will be recorded at noon on Tuesdays. Anyone wanting a link to the sessions just needs to contact Pastor Jamie or the church office. We will send links to the recordings once they are processed by Zoom.
