Christmas Church Bazaars

St. Ambrose will hold their Christmas Marketplace on Friday, Dec. 1 from 1-5 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 2 from 9-5. There will be crafts, raffles, silent auction, attic treasures and so much more.

While we haven’t heard from the Bristol Federated Church, they usually hold their Bazaar on Saturday. Bristol Baptist may also be participating – check it out!

Christmas Tea

The annual Christmas Tea will be held in the church sanctuary beginning at 7 pm, and usually ends around 9 pm. Folks will share stories, readings, songs, and whatever else is put on their hearts. Come join us for some great holiday fellowship! Oh, and there will be LOTS OF CHOCOLATE AND OTHER GOODIES!

LIVE NATIVITY

Sunday, Dec 17th...4:00-6:00 pm. People attending this event need to “check in” at the Bristol Baptist Church. The nativity will be held on the Bristol Green — attendees will be sent out from the church in groups and guided through the nativity.

There will be refreshments and caroling at the church for all to enjoy. There will be some craft making opportunities for kids and the hand bell choir will play carols for everyone to enjoy.
The Live Nativity is a wonderful opportunity to share the true meaning of Christmas with our community. Many go through the holiday season in a frantic frenzy...bring people to the Live Nativity and introduce them to Jesus so they can ponder the wonder of His birth and what that means for each and every person. 
How can you be involved? ~~ be a participant in the Nativity, provide some cookies or another type of snack for the refreshment table, or come and enjoy the festivities (be sure to bring friends, neighbors and family members). The more the merrier! Contact Nancy Orvis if you would like to help. Email is best... norvis1113@gmail.com.
