Watchnight Service

Salem Congregation

Watchnight Service and New Year’s Holy Communion

at Konnoak Hills

December 31 and January 1

11:15 p.m. – 12:15 a.m.

     On New Year’s Eve, the Salem Congregation Watchnight Service moves to Konnoak Hills (3401 Konnoak Drive) with worship beginning at 11:15 p.m. preceded by a 20 minute band prelude.  Andrew Heil, Associate Pastor of Home Moravian Church, will bring the Watchnight message. This year the New Year will be entered with a celebration of Holy Communion, replacing the customary Lovefeast shared in previous years.

Once again the band will interrupt the sermon at midnight to announce the New Year with the playing of “Now Thank We All Our God.”  This interruption is symbolic of the unexpected way the kingdom of God will break into our lives.  All brass and wind musicians are invited to play.

Our thanks to the Konnoak Hills Congregation for hosting this marvelous way to enter a new decade.
