*Sunday, December 17, 10:30 a.m. ~ Our Chancel Choir presents Behold the Star: A Christmas Journey to the Light of Christ followed by a covered dish luncheon. Come and invite someone to join you!


*Thursday, December 21, 6:30 p.m. ~ Longest Night/“Blue Christmas” Service: A Gathering of Hope and Light: During the busyness and noise of the holiday season, many experience an emotional disconnect with “seasonal merriment” because of recent losses, grief, illness, loneliness or changing family circumstances that make it more difficult to celebrate the season. Join us for a quiet, meditative service of prayer, scripture and reflection. Participants are invited to bring a photo or a special remembrance of a loved one to place on the memory table.

* Sunday, December 24, Christmas Eve:
10:30 a.m. ~ Morning Worship


  5:00 p.m. ~ Christmas Eve Candlelight Communion Service
