Christmas Services

We invited you to worship with us to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior. We have several opportunities for worship which are as follows:

10am Family Christmas Eve Service
Because Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday, we will have our Family Christmas Eve service at 10am (instead of our usual 4pm). All are invited to this warm service that is designed with children in mind. We will celebrate the nativity of Jesus with a children’s tableau and sing the great carols of Christmas. Our Co-Associate rector, The Rev. Dr. Jonathan Warren will preach. Childcare for children aged 4 and under will be provided. Children aged 5 and older are with us for the service. Coffee and Christmas cookies in the Parish Hall will follow the service. Please remember to bring your bells to this service! It is a great joy to sing the great hymns of Christmas with congregational bells ringing out!

10pm Festival Christmas Eve Eucharist
Sunday, December 24th at 10pm
Our late Christmas Eve service will feature a Festival Procession, incense, candles and the great music of the season in celebration of the birth of the Christ child. Our Rector, the Rev. Canon Jonathan Millard will preach. Childcare is not provided. Please remember to bring bells to this service! It is a great joy to sing the great hymns of Christmas with congregational bells ringing out!

10am Christmas Day Eucharist
The lessons are different from Christmas Eve so that those who wish to make this their second service of Christmas may join those who prefer this quiet one to the festival celebrations on Christmas Eve. The Rev. Dr. Jack Gabig will preach. Child care is not provided.

Women’s Epiphany Quiet Day: The Door of Eternity

Across the ages, humans have touched on biblical truth – the present in God’s Presence matters – deeply. Each of us is invited to live, not in the past or the future, but His present. And somehow – in God’s economy – this living in the holy now opens us to reality so that we
