Holly and ivy grace the sanctuary, the words of ancient prophets center our hearts in worship, and the Advent Wreath glows with increasing brightness; Christmas is coming to John Street Church.
As America’s oldest Methodist congregation prepares to celebrate Jesus’ birth and the light of heaven’s triumph over sin’s darkness, I am pleased to announce the season’s schedule of worship services and special events.
Lights and Sounds of FiDi, Sunday, December 18, 1:00PMI also invite you to worship God through giving this season by participating in John Street Church’s Christmas Offering. Gifts given to John Street will bless the church’s ministry to and with the people of New York City and around the world. Please visit our online giving site or deliver your gift to the church by mail or in person.
Enjoy the holiday lights and sounds of FiDi with your friends from John Street Church as we stroll through the neighborhood on December 18.
