Multicultural Family Christmas Dinner – December 17 @ 5:30 p.m.

Sunday December 17th at 5:30 p.m.
Tyson Hall

As is our tradition here at the Leonia United Methodist Church, we will be having our Family Christmas dinner and party in Tyson Hall on the Sunday before Christmas Eve.  The dinner will include a story time and time with Santa Clause for children, as well as our traditional Yankee Swap. This year, we are encouraging those bringing food to bring dishes that are representative of their cultural/ethnic identity or heritage. (If you aren’t certain you have a cultural/ethnic identity or heritage, adopt one for the evening!) Leonia Church is also encouraging those who attend to dress according to their cultural/ethnic identity or heritage.

You will find a sign-up sheet in Tyson Hall for food, set up and clean up. You may also use your connection card on Sunday morning or contact the church office ( or 201-944-2970).

When was the last time you and your family had a professional portrait taken?

A professional portrait is not only a way for us to have an attractive directory, it is also an opportunity for you to capture a moment in the life of your family. Portraits are valued family keepsakes that preserve a moment in your lifetime. There is no cost to the church and no sitting fee for your family. You will receive a free 8×10 portrait and a free copy of the directory for participation. You will be professionally photographed, choose your pose for the directory and have the chance to make additional purchases all in one trip to the church.

Leonia Church is creating a pictorial directory of the members and families of our church. You can sign up online, or on Sunday morning, or by calling the church office (201-944-2970) during regular office hours.

Christmas Eve Offering – Give Jesus A Birthday Present

Dedicated to the Elijah Fund

Christmas is Jesus’ birthday! Why not give Jesus an extra-special birthday present this year? You can do that by giving to the 2017 Special Christmas Eve Offering. Every year, Leonia Church dedicates our Special Christmas Eve Offering to mission and ministry “beyond the walls” of our church building. The offering taken on Christmas Eve 2017 will be given to the Leonia Church Elijah Fund.

Give on Christmas Eve… or Anytime
