Faithful: A Journey to Christmas

Celebrate the Season

Advent is a time of anticipation as we journey through the weeks leading up to Christmas, a time to focus our hearts and minds and to remember the stories of our faith. We invite you to join us on this journey as we prepare to celebrate God’s wonderful gift of love to the world.

Christmas Week Worship Services

The Longest Night Service

December 21, 7:00 p.m. in the Chapel

This quiet, meditative worship service makes time for remembering, sharing our hurting places with God, and preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ, in the midst of a season full of celebration and activity. If you or someone you know is struggling to feel the joy of the season or could use time to step aside from the hurried pace to remember departed loved ones, please join us for this special evening of worship.
