Special Services

 

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve at 5:00 p.m. we will celebrate outside with special guest musicians Betsy Hudson-Traba, flute, and Fernando Traba, bassoon. Greg will lead us in singing the familiar carols of Christmas.

Christmas Eve at 8:00 p.m. we will worship in the sanctuary and online with special music beginning at 7:45 by Meghan Jones, violin and Natalie Helm, cello. Our choir will lead us in this beautiful candle light service with anthems and carols.

Christmas Eve at 11 p.m. an intimate, quiet service centering around communion. On the cusp of Christmas morning, we gather with reverent hush around the manger. The service will be reflective and offer moments of stillness to be in God’s presence. Since this service was recently added and musician contracts previously signed, special music will be YOU, the Congregation, singing the beloved carols.

For future Services information see the Events page.
