Our Savior is Born

Christmas. It is one of our most joyous holidays, a time to remember the birth of Christ our savior. Christmas is a time to share our blessings with one another, and to be surrounded by the people we love. It is a time for giving, and a time for forgiving. It can be a time of healing and renewed strength. Most importantly, it is a reminder of how much God loves us. We hope you will join us for our Christmas services, and allow yourself to be enveloped by the living Spirit during this season of great joy.

Incarnation Advent Study

In Incarnation: Rediscovering the Significance of Christmas, Adam Hamilton examines the names of Christ used by the gospel writers, exploring the historical and personal significance of his birth.

This Advent season our church family will come together to remember what’s important. In the face of uncertainty and conflict, Christians reclaim the Christ child who brings us together, heals our hearts, and calls us to bring light into the darkness. Our pastors, staff and laity will lead Incarnation for all ages, both in-person, as small group studies and via Zoom. Find a day and time that works best for you here.

Serving Our Community

Project Zero

Help us bring smiles to kids faces this Christmas! Our Children’s Ministry in partnership with Project Zero is collecting gift cards / checks of any denomination to help purchase Christmas gifts for local area kids in foster care. Donations may be dropped off (or mailed) to the church office during the week, from 9am – 2pm. The last day to make your donation is 11/22.

2nd St. Personal Care Drive

Let’s work together to ensure our neighbors have everything they need to stay healthy this Christmas season. Personal care sacks can be found outside the narthex beginning Nov. 29th. Sacks may be returned on or before December 13 during in person worship or dropped off at the church office during the week from 9am – 2pm. Find this year’s list here.

Preparing for Christmas

Hanging of the Greens Worship Service

November 22, 2020 | 5 PM

Just as we decorate our homes, we prepare our sanctuary to usher in the season of Advent in anticipation that we will once again welcome the Christ child into the world. We hang garlands of evergreen, set out the Advent Wreath, and trim the Christmas Tree to make ready the house of God as we ring in the birth of Jesus Christ in retelling the story and sharing our carols of praise. Be with us as we begin the story of Christmas to proclaim that Emmanuel, Jesus Christ, is born.

A Traditional Christmas

Our church will follow our Bishop’s guidelines to suspend all in-person gatherings for the foreseeable future and assess the Covid numbers in spring 2021. That includes cancelling in-person and outdoor Christmas Eve services. Instead, we hope you’ll join us for our Christmas Eve services from the safety of your homes. We also invite you to stop by the sanctuary on Sunday, December 20 from 5-7pm to pick up candles to light on Christmas Eve and to grab a cup of hot cocoa to go.
