The Longest Night Service

This service is designed for when all is not merry and bright. While Christmas brings joy, it can also bring sorrow, difficult memories, and melancholy. And that’s okay! Join together in worship to give space to those emotions and to find encouragement through being a church family together.

Christmas Eve Services

** In the event of inclement weather, any changes to the Christmas Eve schedule will be announced via email, on social media, and through Realm. **

Family-Friendly Service

This service is designed with children in mind! Kids are invited to come to worship in their pajamas, ready for the evening's festivities! Ms. Elisa will read the Christmas story during the children's moment, much like at the 11:00 am service. The communion liturgy is kid-friendly and we'll gather together after the service is over for cookies and cocoa.

A church favorite! Come early for our 6:00 pm service to hear sounds of the season played by our own Zachary Golden and other local talent.

A joyous occasion featuring communion and singing by candlelight. Mark the highlight of the Advent season by joining together in worship! 

On Christmas Day, we invite you to join us for an online worship service at 11:00 am on our Facebook Page.

Common Devotional for Advent

This Advent season, we as a church will be learning and experiencing the season together through Christmas Carols! We'll read a daily devotional together focused on Christmas Carols, Why This Jubilee? by James C. Howell; hear sermons keyed to the readings and hymns from the devotional for that week; and sing and hear those same songs in worship. This is a wonderful way to come together as a church during a wonderful and beautiful season. Purchase the book and begin reading on Sunday, November 27!

You can purchase the book here or through most online booksellers.
