Calendar of Events
View our calendar of events when we can gather together to receive. These gatherings are a great place to invite friends of family to join us.
- 11/28 after the service – Hanging of the Greens
This annual tradition kicks off the first Sunday of Advent. We will continue our “coffee only” hour while setting up decorations for the season. Thanks again this year to the Eckhardt/Leab families for the trees indoor and outdoor.
- 12/12 at 4 pm – Navigating Family Landmines: a holiday gathering survival guide
Do you sometimes feel that pit in your stomach around holiday gatherings—and it has nothing to do with the rich foods or treats? The holidays are a time of celebration, family, and fun. They can also be a time where disagreements surface, old fights are rehashed, or stories told we’d rather forget. When politics and masks/vaccine practices can divide a family as much as a nation, it’s helpful to have a few tricks to navigate the landmines. Join our workshop open to the community on how to steer clear of the conversations that feel potentially explosive, if not relationally unsafe.
- 12/19 at 4 pm – Blue Christmas Service: honoring life and loss in the holidays.
The Christmas season has an amazing ability to trigger nostalgic memories—both of happy and sad, gratitude and grief. The Blue Christmas tradition honors the fact that for many of us we experience all kinds of loss—the loss of relationships, loss of trust, loss of jobs, loss of health, loss of faith, the loss of joy. Authentic spirituality does not hide this truth, and instead allows us the space for honesty, reflection, community and practices of support. No matter your circumstance, this is an open welcoming service of candlelight, songs, prayers, and hope.
- 12/24 at 7:30 pm – Christmas Eve Service
Join us for a family friendly service of carols and candles. All are welcome.
Many folks also look for the opportunity to give during the holiday season or at year end. Here are a few ideas of where to share.
- Angel Tree – Give a gift to a child from our local schools to support a family and show your care. If you don’t have the time or ability to shopping, you can still give monetary gift. Thanks to Nancy Beal for the coordinating again this year. Contact her for more information. All donations due by December 5th.
- Poinsettias – There is still time to order plants in memory of your loved ones to be placed in the Sanctuary for Christmas Eve. The cost is $10 and checks can be made to the church with Poinsettia in the memo line. Orders can be placed by December 5th.
- Food Pantry – The need continues to grow in our community. The food pantry is serving more families and can use our donations during the season. Items can be placed in the entryway of Pierce Hall.
