Advent Study: The Wonder of Christmas

An exciting exploration of four elements of the Christmas story that teach us about the wonder of God’s great love for us: a star, a name, a manger, and a promise.

Christmas Decoration Ministry

We decorate the church during Advent as a reminder that we have entered a new season of preparing our space and ourselves for the birth of our Lord, Jesus. You can help us welcome Him by contributing to the Christmas Decoration ministry, and make a donation in honor of a loved one.

You can give in person at the church or online by Wednesday, December 22.



Longest Night Taize Service

Wednesday, December 22, 7:00 PM in the Sanctuary and live-stream on Online ChurchFacebook, and YouTube

We have a tradition of gathering on the longest night, when there are more hours of darkness than light. It’s a time to come together for prayers and laments, to mourn the losses and griefs of the year, to let the tears flow for the hurting places in our lives, as well as for our country and our world. If you are joining us via livestream at home, please have some matches and a candle with you to join in the liturgy.
