Service for Those Who Grieve

Christmas time can be especially hard for people who are grieving. We may have lost loved ones during the holidays or we may be acutely feeling their absence at this time when being with loved ones is emphasized. Come light a candle in memory of a loved one. Listen to some quiet music. No Christmas Carols will be sung. No compulsory joy. It will just be a space set aside to acknowledge our grief.

Winter Solstice Labyrinth Walk

A time to acknowledge darkness and to notice the undying light within. Bring a flashlight and a warm coat as we walk into the center of the ancient labyrinth and walk back out again. Light a candle in the center as a sign of your hopes for the coming year.

Christmas Eve: Children’s Christmas Pageant

The Christmas Pageant is back!  Everyone is welcome to participate. Grab a costume when you walk in. What will you be? Shepherd? Angel? Animal? Maybe there will be some lines. Maybe not. You never know. What we will have for sure is classic Christmas Carols led by our band, scripture readings that tell the Christmas story, and an evening of joy and light.
