Advent at Prairie Street Mennonite Church has focused on the theme “Life from the stump”. The visual of an old broken stump with the light of candles has enhanced our Advent worship. You are welcome to join us for worship this Sunday, December 20 at 9:30am as a time to prepare your hearts for Christmas.

On Sunday, December 27, our worship service will be a time of Christmas music celebration, 9:30am.

On Wednesday, December 23 at 7:00pm we will remember Devonte Ray Patrick who was killed in the church parking lot two years ago on December 23. Devonte’s family and church will join with Prairie Street participants to pray, sing and remember others who have been victims of violence in Elkhart.

Christmas Eve service will be at 5:00pm on Thursday, December 24. Join us for song and scripture as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus.

– Christmas Day service at St John the Evangelist Episcopal, 9:00am, Friday, December 25 (several Prairie Street families have the tradition of attending this service).

A shoot shall come out from the stump of Jesse,
and a branch shall grow out of his roots.
The spirit of the Lord shall rest on him,
the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the spirit of counsel and might,
the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. Isaiah 11:1-2
