The Redemption of Scrooge

All are invited to worship at 10:30 am at the Aldersgate United Methodist Church (on Route 17, across from Lake Chickawaukie) for an exploration of “The Redemption of Scrooge” during the weeks leading up to Christmas. The chiming of the clock-tower bells in Charles Dickens’ classic “A Christmas Carol” provide a wake-up call for Ebenezer Scrooge, turning him from self-centered isolation to a new life of joy and generosity. The four week series will provide everyone with an opportunity to join Mr. Scrooge in claiming the joy of the season.

Based on Marcia McFee’s series, “God Bless us Everyone”, from the Worship Design Studio, the experience is adapted from the book “The Redemption of Scrooge” by Matt Rawle. A creative setting of “worship in the round” allows everyone to be part of the countdown to Christmas by forming an Advent Wreath, complete with candles. Music borrowed from Disney’s cartoon portrayal of the Dickens classic will tie everything together. And, who knows, Scrooge McDuck might even put in an appearance!
