The New Year offers everyone the opportunity to wipe the slate clean. Whatever negativity existed during the previous year is no longer present; the brand new year offers a fresh new start. The First United Methodist Church of Los Alamos and City-Wide Worship and Prayer are giving the community the chance to begin 2010 on the right footing.
The churches are hosting Watchnight Worship from 11:30-midnight Dec. 31 at the First United Methodist Church of Los Alamos.
During the service, residents will have the opportunity to renew or enter a Covenant with God and the Sacrament of Holy Communion.
“It’s an opportunity for people to rededicate their lives to God for the upcoming year and to celebrate the sacred sacrament of communion with God and each other,” Gail Diedrich of City-Wide Worship and Prayer said.
The Watchnight Worship is a long-standing tradition.
"This particular liturgy," Rev. Dave Ring said, "was developed in 1755 by the Rev. John Wesley, who was an Anglican priest in England. And Wesley became kind of the father of the Methodist movement first in England, and then in the United States and ultimately worldwide.
