Special Services

December 23
Blue Christmas
4:00 PM

The Christmas season, while joyful, brings about a myriad of feelings, particularly if you have lost someone. Maybe a loss is fresh or this is your first Christmas without a loved one; perhaps it has been years or this season marks an anniversary.

No matter, it is difficult when everything around you is shimmering with lights and joy - and you find yourself feeling blue.

This service is for you. We will share space in worship, acknowledging our feelings, lighting candles for those we miss, and finding comfort in community.

This service is open for all.

December 24
Candlelight Christmas Service
6:30 PM

Join us as we celebrate a light that shines in the darkness! Join us as we hear the Nativity Story and join our voices in singing songs that tell the story of of God erupting in the world and challenge ourselves to go and do likewise!

This service is family friendly.
