Sunday Morning Worship
We gather for worship every Sunday morning at 9:30 am. Our worship service is built around the Word of God and celebration of the Eucharist. Lay leadership is integral to our worship.

Christmas Eve Services
Joyously Wiggly Service (4 p.m.)
This Christmas Eve service is carefully crafted to accommodate people who have difficulty sitting still for very long. The name is descriptive! We will hear the Christmas story read from Luke’s gospel. (That’s Linus’s part in Charlie Brown’s Christmas.) We’ll sing one or two verses of the Christmas carols—not all of the verses. The sermon will be delivered sitting on the steps of the chancel, surrounded by the children. We will celebrate Holy Communion and sing Silent Night by candlelight.
Candlelight Christmas Eve Service (9 p.m.)
We gather around Word and Sacrament to celebrate the astonishing movement of God into the particularity of human existence. Come, bring your friends and families as we worship the Christ child with carols and candlelight!
