Tree Lighting @ The First Church Pembroke - Published Dec 9, 2013


The ever-popular annual tree lighting ceremony at the First Church in Pembroke, Massachusetts was held Sunday evening December 8, 2013 at 6pm, followed by cookies, cupcakes, sweet breads, and warm drinks served in Fellowship Hall. 

Deacon Bob Kopper began by explaining, "What we're going to do is say a few words, then Pastor Rick [Giragosian] will say a prayer. We'll read the names and then we'll go out and actually light the tree. Pastor Rick will say a short prayer out there, and then we come in and get our reward of goodies and hot chocolate."

Loved ones not in attendance were remembered with both certificates and their names said aloud.

"Now we're at 1,125 lights," Deacon Rich Mielke explained about the number of glowing bulbs, " and it looks good." 

The 3 ½-minute video now playing at shows people standing in a circle just before the multi-colored lights are turned on and a resounding "Ahhhh" fills the air.

Giragosian led the ceremony with "As we remember this lovely green tree, we remember the lives of those people [whose names] we read out loud, some gone and some with us still, but their lives either way are ever-green in our hearts. Their memory and their presence still as strong with us, and will always be strong with us. So we bless you for this reminder that love never ends. That it transcends death. They are a part of us forever. Amen."

"Even more important than monetary contributions, is the time and caring that we give to one another," announces a parishioner during "The Deacon Moment."
This service is chock full of such thoughtful moments. Beginning with shoes and boots donated to comfort the feet of Boston's needy, Pastor Giragosian assisting a young girl lighting the candle on the alter, and a mother cradling her restless child; not a moment passes that we don't view some example of caring within the congregation itself.
It's "Barefoot Sunday" at the First Church in Pembroke, Massachusetts.
