Daily Devotional

  • Thanksgiving  (11/26/2014)
    Like a familiar liturgy, the reliable sameness of the items on the Thanksgiving table signal some order amidst the turbulence that takes place from year to year.

Blue Christmas Service

The holiday season isn't filled with excitement, happiness and joy for everyone.  Instead of being surrounded by friends and family, for some of us our only company is tears, heartache and memories during the Christmas season.

On December 21 at 7:00 p.m. we will have a candlelight service to recognize and honor those for whom this time of year is especially difficult.  This Blue Christmas Service will be one of prayer, reflection, tears and lighting of candles as we remember those who are no longer here to celebrate Christmas with us.  All are invited to join us for this sacred evening. Childcare will be provided.
