Encountering God in the Dark: Advent Book Study

In a season where we anticipate the coming Christ light, we will explore what God has for us to learn in moments of darkness. Join us for a four session Advent book study on Barbara Brown Taylor’s Learning to Walk in the Dark. In this study we will discuss our associations with darkness and discover ways to embrace our fears and losses as part of the spiritual journey and an entrance into a deepened faith. The group will meet Tuesday evenings from 7- 8:15 December 1, 8, 15, 22. Order your book through the Amazon link below, and the church will receive a portion of the cost.

Sing Carols of Joy Christmas Musical

Join us at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 13 to see a musical presentation of the Christmas Story by the children and youth of the parish. Share the joy of the season with family and friends, and join them in singing carols of the season.

Service of Hope and Healing

We are taught that this time of year should be filled with joy, but some find it to be a time of struggle. Please join us on Sunday, December 20 at 5:00 p.m. for a special healing service to let go and focus our hearts on hope. This service of lessons, prayers, and laying on of hands will acknowledge the struggle we sometimes have during the holiday season when we have experienced a loss or other hardship.
