Christmas Services 2020

Our Christmas services this year will be:

 

Blue Christmas Service, December 21 - 6:00 p.m.

For many people Christmas is a hard time.  If you are facing a difficult holiday season, maybe this year you lost a loved one ,or made a hard move, lost a job or a close friend, or you are missing family and friends.  Our Blue Christmas service is a time when we can, together, acknowledge the "blue" feelings we have at Christmas time, the reasons for them, and offer them to God.  This is a service of prayer, with music and communion.  

 

This year’s service will be similar to our Sunday morning services.  We are asking you to make a reservation, either online through our website or calling the Church office  We will take 30 reservations.  Masks are required.
