December and Christmas Services
Blue Christmas Service, December 17 at 5:00 p.m. For many people, Christmas can be a difficult time and a painful reminder of what has been lost. For those dealing with financial strain, depression, grief, or illness, the holidays can be anything but happy. To acknowledge this sadness and loneliness, we are once again having a special non-denominational “Blue Christmas” Service. This service will include readings, candle lighting and silence and will focus on the hope and healing God offers to each one of us. All are welcome, so please share this with anyone you think might benefit from such a service.
Holy Eucharist Service, December 24 at 10:00 a.m. We will hold our regular Sunday Holy Eucharist service at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, December 24.
Candlelight Christmas Eve Service, December 24 at 6:00 p.m. Candlelight, music, Holy Eucharist, and the Christmas liturgy will be the highlights of this service celebrating the birth of Jesus.
Please note that there will not be a service on Monday, December 25.
New Year’s Eve, Morning Prayer, December 31 at 10:00 a.m. The 10:00 a.m. service on Sunday, December 31 will be Morning Prayer instead of the Holy Eucharist.
