Sunday service centers on guidance

“To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings.” (Science and Health).

Mary Baker Eddy begins her book with this powerful promise to readers.

This promise is based on the idea that God, the Creator, preserves that creation, and that you, as a child of God, are included in that protection.

“God the Preserver of Man” is the topic of the Sunday, Dec. 13 Christian Science service.

As we enter into the season of travel and family gatherings, come join in exploring how we all come under this umbrella of protection and guidance. Services begin at 10:30 a.m. at 5910 Highway 525 (just north of Bayview and across from Useless Bay Road).

Donna Cori Gibson, a world-class singer from Snohomish, will give a free concert at St. Hubert Catholic Church at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 18.

Gibson’s concert will include carols and some sing-alongs.

The beauty and power of her voice has been compared to Celine Dion.

Come and celebrate the reason for the season. Don’t miss this family evening of music open to the community.

The church is located at 804 Third St. in Langley. For more information or questions. Call 221-5383 or visit
