3 Things to Know This Week @ First Pres

1 Calvary Pres has accepted the challenge

Calvary Presbyterian Church of Bayfield has accepted our friendly challenge. Should the Bayfield Wolverines win the football championship on Saturday (NOT!), we will wear purple to church on Sunday. Should the La Junta Tigers win the championship (OF COURSE!!!), they will wear orange to church. Calvary will document their defeat and send to the other church. We’ll keep you posted. Go, Tigers!

2 Our first Advent celebration

We’ll begin our Advent celebrations this Sunday, November 26, with readings from Luke 1 and the Chancel Choir singing, “Hallelujah,” with soloists Kristin Golding-Langston and Dennis Golding.

3 Pageant rehearsals

With some families gone this weekend for the holiday, our pageant rehearsals will begin with a read-thru on Sunday. Rehearsals will begin, in earnest, on Sunday, December 3, from 10:45 to 12 noon.
