  • Advent Book Study

    Starting November 29

    Join Pastor Kelli for a book study, “Making Room: Sharing the Love of Christmas,” by Ed Robb. Learn how our Advent preparations can become more outwardly focused as we explore the warmth of welcome at Christmas following interactions with Mary and Joseph, the shepherds, and the magi. As Jesus made room in God's kingdom for a host of people, we too should be asking ourselves who we can make room for this Christmas.

  • The Longest Night Service May Be For You

    December 21 5:30pm

    December 21st is the longest night of the year, when there is more darkness than light. It is the perfect time to gather for a Longest Night worship service in the Chapel at 5:30 pm. This beautiful service provides comfort, companionship, and hope for anyone who is not feeling joyful this Christmas. Persons who are grieving a loss, battling an illness, dealing with addiction, struggling with family problems, experiencing depression, or carrying the burdens of others who are suffering are invited to come. Please share the invitation with others in the community who may need this worship service. Together, we will move from lament to hope, from darkness to light, from suffering alone to healing together. We will be held in the light and love of the Christ child.
