The annual Christmas Dinner Party is coming up soon, so be sure to save the date! Instead of the first Friday of the month, it will be the second, December 14. We’ll start, as usual at 6:00 p.m. with appetizers including Crab Toasts and Warm Brie with Fig and Pistachio Tapenade. Dinner will be served around 6:45 or 7:00 p.m.
The menu is as follows: Roasted Lobster Tails, Braised Beef Brisket, Corn Casserole, Spinach Salad, Snow Peas with Tomatoes, Sweet and Sour Carrots, and Party Potatoes. Dessert will be White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread, Crème Brûlée, and Grasshopper Pie.
Leave your place settings at home as the tables will be set upon your arrival. Bring whatever beverage you would like. The cost for this elegant meal is only $15. Call in reservations by Monday, December 10 (church office 315-682-5795 or Rene & Ron Hebert 315-632-4388 or email@example.com).
Christmas is a time in which we celebrate the birth of Jesus, yet for many people the holiday season is stressful or difficult. In recognition of this reality, Christ Church, Manlius is holding a Blue Christmas service on Sunday, December 16 at 7:00 p.m. We welcome everyone who might appreciate a quiet, thoughtful, meditative service. The evening will include Scripture readings, prayer, and music.
Christ Church t-shirts are available for sale at coffee hour and in the office. They come in sizes S, M and L for $10 and 2XL for $12. Get yours before they are gone!
We have Delta Sonic car wash gift certificates available for purchase in the church office. The $10 certificate provides a Super Kiss Wash with complimentary second wash within five days (a $16.20 value) and a portion of the purchase stays with Christ Church as a fundraiser.
Pat B. is collecting gently used shoes, used eyeglasses and hearing aids for the Pompey Lions Club. The shoes will be sent to Waterstep, a project to provide shoes for adults and children and clean water for people around the world. There is a collection bin for all items in Crosby Hall.
