Advent and Blue Christmas Service at First United Methodist Church of East Greenbush

EAST GREENBUSH – Advent services will be live streamed at 9:30 AM each of the Sundays of Advent, which are December 6, December 13, and December 20. During each service the Advent candles will be lighted by church families.

Saturday, December 5 – The Blue Christmas tree will be in the church entryway rather than in the sanctuary as previously announced. Stars and markers will be available from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM for those who wish to come and sign a star to hang on the tree in memory of loved ones or in recognition of other losses. Please wear a mask when you come. We are asking that only one person at a time be in the entryway. We invite you to visit the outdoor chapel if you would like some quiet time after hanging your star. 1 Gilligan Rd, East Greenbush, (518) 477-9693
