During quiet time there are activities set up in the parish hall for relaxation and books available for learning or you may find a quiet spot in the church or offices to read and/or meditate. The theme of our 2022 Advent Quiet Day is “The Hymns of Advent.” All are welcome.

Join us following the 10:00AM service on Sunday, December 18th as we decorate the church for the Nativity. All are welcome.

Blue Christmas–Wednesday December 21 6:00PM In-person and via Zoom

“Blue Christmas” is quiet meditative service especially for those for whom the Christmas season is a profoundly sad and lonely time, a reminder of loss and brokenness. Lighting of candles offers opportunity for remembrance, reflection, prayer and spiritual healing. One can grieve knowing they are not alone and be comforted and strengthened by the love of Christ and those present.

Come for yourself, for someone you love or for those who suffer around the world. All are welcome. The service bulletin is available here and under Worship.
