Advent & Christmas Worship Schedule

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, we dwell in Advent. Contrary to the busyness and commercialism that pervades this time of year, Advent invites us to slow down, to wait, to pay attention to our deepest longings. We hope you will join us for worship!

Advent Worship:

November 28 – Worship at 8:30 and 10:45

No programming for Education Hour, due to the Thanksgiving holiday

December 5 – Pastor Paisley’s Installation!

After over a year of serving among us, Pastor Paisley Le Roy will officially be installed as our Associate Pastor! Join us for worship at 8:30 and 10:45 and festivities in Fellowship Hall in-between services (9:40-10:40am).

December 19 – 7:00pm – Longest Night Service

This gentle, contemplative worship service will provide a space to honor the loss and grief that we carry, even in a holiday season that often focuses on joy and merriment. Each of us have experienced tremendous loss this year, and we hope this service will acknowledge the hole that grief leaves in our hearts, while simultaneously remembering that we worship a God who is with us, even in the darkest of times.
