For a child has been born for us,
a son given to us;
authority rests upon his shoulders;
and he is named
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
~ Isaiah 9:6

Christmas Worship Services
Longest Night Chapel Service ~ Friday, December 21 * 7 pm
This service is for anyone who finds Christmas not a joyful, happy time, but one of grief, despair, and loneliness. The experience of grief over the loss of loved ones is often heightened at Christmas. The experience of loneliness is often greater for those who are single or alone. The service is reflective, offering prayers, scripture readings, soft music, and an opportunity to light a candle in memory of a loved one or as a sign of hope. A time of fellowship follows the service.
Christmas Eve Services ~ Monday, December 24
5:00 pm—Children’s & Family Service—Join us as we celebrate the night of Jesus’ birth with scripture and carols. Children are invited to participate in the service.
9 pm—Thirty minutes of seasonal music leads up to the Traditional Candlelight Worship service.
9:30 pm—Traditional Worship—Communion, carols, and candlelight
