First Presbyterian schedules events

First Presbyterian Church of Warrensburg will host Rev. Tim Coombs from Scotia in a one-person presentation of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" at 6 p.m. Saturday Dec. 11, and all are invited. Refreshments will be available from 5:30 to 6 p.m. and during the intermission of the performance. Donations to cover Rev. Tim's travel expenses will be collected. The church is located at 3 Stewart Farrar Ave.

A Christmas program including carol singing and a holiday youth drama will be presented on Sunday Dec. 12 during the 10 a.m. worship service. The choir will lead the congregation in Christmas carols, while the youth of the assembly will provide the acting.

Presbyterian youth group is busy

A few months ago Rev. Lucy Harris of the First Presbyterian Church of Warrensburg started a youth group which meets the first and third Wednesday of each month. The group consists of 6-8 teenagers at this time, and more from the community are welcome to join.

The group gives the youth a place to hang out and have fun while exploring spiritual, ethical and philosophical issues, Harris said. Each meeting of the ecumenical group starts with a dinner at 5:30 p.m. that appeals to teens, followed by open discussion. The group is having fun as well as serving the community, we hear. The group recently went on a trip to the Great Escape and on Saturday Dec. 18 they will deliver homemade cookies and sing carols to the seniors at the Countryside Adult Home on Schroon River Rd. A future retreat trip, including a theme entitled The Gospel according to Harry Potter, is now in the planning stages. All are welcome to join in the group - contact Rev. Lucy Harris at 623-2723 for details.
