Pastor Alan will be available in the Grace sanctuary from 7 to 8 am and from noon until 1 pm, on Wednesday, February 14, to place a cross of ashes on the forehead of those who wish. The weekly Prayer Service will take place in the Chapel at the usual 8 am time, and ashes will be given then, too. The use of ashes as an outward sign of mortality and repentance has a long history in Jewish and Christian worship.
Join us at 11 am New Year's Eve for a festive celebration of the Christmas story, told with the familiar and beloved Bible stories and carols. Our combined congregation will gather together for this meaningful hour of worship. (There will be no 9 am service this morning.)
Come join an hour of family-friendly worship as we celebrate the birth of Jesus. Every child - no matter how young or how old - can participate in the live reenactment of the Christmas story. You won't want to miss a telling of a special "Night Before Christmas", and we will sing your favorite Christmas carols. Everyone is welcome!
“Blue Christmas" is a service which offers a quiet time of reflection for those who may feel saddened or depressed by the holidays. The short days, coupled with memories of departed loved ones may contribute to these feelings. Offered on the longest night of the year, this is a time of soft worship, gentle on the spirit, warm on the soul.
