Christmas Eve Redux

We missed Christmas Eve in December because of COVID-19, but there’s no reason we can’t celebrate that together now! Plan to join us in person or online for worship on Sunday, March 6th, at 10:00am, when we will celebrate the birth of Christ with scripture, prayer, carols, and candlelight. Come dressed in Christmas attire and be ready to sing “Silent Night.”
Stay tuned for more details coming soon.

We are taking this step for the fundamental reason that our faith calls us to love one another, to care for each other, to ensure the safety of the sick and the vulnerable. [...]
