While Galilee is physically closed, people need to visit the building. We ask all who enter to log in using a sheet at the front entrance. This is to ensure that we have information needed for contact tracing in the event of a potential COVID case.
Galilee’s 60th Anniversary – November 15
Galilee is sixty years old!
Now’s the time to help us celebrate sixty years of Galilee by sending us a photo.
We’d love for you or your family to take a photo with our “I Am Galilee” or “We Are Galilee” signs and send it into us, so we can put a celebratory video together for worship on Nov 15.
You can also make your own signs, if you want to get creative! Photos need to be sent by November 4.
Advent In A Box
You are invited to join Galilee Church as we celebrate the season in a new way in 2020 – through Advent in a Box.
Advent, the four weeks prior to Christmas, is a season of preparation. Christians throughout the world spend this time praying, enacting traditions, and decorating their homes to mark the approach of Christmas. Galilee’s Advent in a Box includes supplies needed to assemble an advent wreath at home, as well as activities to engage individuals and families in exploring the true meaning of Jesus Christ and Christmas. Each week, you will be invited to join in lighting your advent candles during worship from the comfort and safety of your own home.
The “Advent in a Box” includes:
- Week 1: “Hope” – Advent Calendar, Galilee watch party for “Veggietales: The Toy that Saved Christmas” or “The Nativity Story”
- Week 2: “Peace” – Baking cookies, Legend of the Candy Cane
- Week 3: “Joy” – Surprise Ride, Legend of the Christmas Tree
- Week 4: “Love” – Writing to Pen Pals, Passing the Blessing
- Christmas Eve: The Example of St. Nicholas and how to bless our community
Kits are $25, payable at the time of registration. Registration closes on November 15!
Kits will be available for pick up on November 22.
