TMC Christmas 2018
24 Dec 2018: TMC
TMC Christmas Sunday worship service on Dec 23 included Christmas carols and Japanese interpretation of the English sermon. After enjoying a potluck lunch some TMCers went caroling at our nearby park and train stations while offering gift bags for children.
They also handed out invitations to our Christmas Eve candlelight service, which was entirely in Japanese. Dec 24 happened to be a Japanese holiday in 2018. This kind of Christmas outreach event is typical for churches in Japan because even non-Christians are interested in Christmas. Our hope is that these kinds of events will move us toward launching a Japanese language worship service next year.
