Christmas Eve, 24 December – A large congregation of people gathered for our Christmas Eve service at 7:00 pm. Pastor Milton Fritsch led the service with readings from the Bible read by members. The readings reminded members of God’s promise right from the beginning of time, after Adam and Eve’s fall into sin, of a Saviour, His Son, who would come to save us from our sin. The readings then followed God’s promise through history, culminating in His keeping of that promise when Jesus was born. Children of the congregation acted out the Christmas story as it was read.
Christmas Day, 25 December – Members gathered once again on the morning of Christmas Day to be reminded once again of God’s great gift to all humankind – that of His Son, Jesus.
New Year’s Eve, 31 December – A Geelong-wide New Year’s Eve service was held at St John’s at 7:00 pm. Pastor Milton Fritsch reminded members of that many blessings of God throughout 2017. He also reminded members that in spite of the host of bad news during the year, that God still rules over the universe and continues to show His love and forgiveness. He will continue to bless us and care for us in 2018.
