Choral Holy Eucharist & Pageant

The annual Christmas pageant will be presented by the children and youth as part of the 10:15 service.

Advent Noonday Prayer

We often miss Advent's power because December is so full of secular parties and preparations for Christmas.  Each year the busyness of the season serves to distract us from having an Advent season that helps prepare us for the true celebnration of Christmas.  Join us for noonday prayers every Monday, Wednesday and Friday during Advent to slowdown  and reflect on the coming of Jesus.

Longest Night Service

On Thursday, Dec.  20 at 7 pm, we will have a Service of the Longest Night designed to recognize the struggle with darkness and grief that many people who are living with loss feel at this time of the year.
