Wednesday, December 21

Longest Night Service at 7:30 p.m., led by Gretchen Kuhrmann and Leslie Woods. During this season of joy and anticipation not everyone is feeling happiness if they have experienced loss or find themselves in unfortunate situations.

Worship God with honesty, joy and imagination, nurture our lives of faith in Christ, extend hospitality and grace to all people, serve a world in need, and work for reconciliation among people of diverse perspectives.
