Longest Night: Service of Hope and Comfort

Wednesday, December 19, 6:30 p.m.
Join us at 6:30 p.m. in the nave for a service of hope and comfort on December 19. This meditative service gives us time for remembering, sharing our hurting places with God, and preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ. Join others for whom the Christmas season is bittersweet to hear scripture, offer prayers for healing and wholeness, and to sing hymns that acknowledge God’s presence with those who mourn and grieve, with those who suffer, and with those who struggle. God is the light shining in our darkness. 

All are welcome! The service will be followed by a brief time for light refreshments and fellowship

Lessons and Carols: Dec. 2 at 6 p.m.

We celebrate the Advent season with Advent Lessons and Carols. This beautiful annual event includes readings, hymns, anthems, and prayers that mark events in the story of Redemption. Join our Church Choir, Chorus, Choristers and Junior Choristers as we fill our nave in sound! A potluck Open House will immediately follow Lessons and Carols in the parish hall. All are invited to bring a savory or sweet finger food to share. (Please bring food items already plated and ready to share, so that there will be a minimum of set-up and clean-up).

Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving Day
Service of the Word     Thursday, November 22, 10:30 a.m.
The service will include traditional Thanksgiving hymns, a sermon, and a Litany of Thanksgiving. All are welcome. Casual attire is encouraged.

Dinner at Christ the King Church,  11:45 a.m.
Grandma comes to the parish hall – and you don’t even have to drive “over the river and through the woods”– for Thanksgiving Dinner! Paul and Marie Monroe have graciously volunteered to prepare turkey & dressing for a family-style Thanksgiving Day dinner in the parish hall. Any students who aren’t going home, young adults without plans, and all adults without family in town are invited to join them. If you would like, you may bring a covered dish to share (salad, vegetable, bread, dessert, fancy drinks, etc.). For an accurate count, please notify Beverly Davis. However, if you don’t sign up, you are still welcome: everyone will eat their fill and we’ll have baskets of food left over. Thanksgiving dinner will begin around 11:45 a.m. and run until the turkey tryptophan kicks in.
