Advent 2021

We’ve decked the halls, and it’s time for our cherished Advent events to celebrate the hope, peace, joy, and love of the season.

Christmas Pageant and Advent Dinner – Dec. 5

Everyone is invited to attend this year’s Children’s Christmas Pageant on Sunday, December 5 at 5:00 p.m. For those who signed up for the Advent Dinner, serving will begin around 5:30 p.m. (after pageant). Please bring a dessert to share. After dinner, we will sing Christmas carols around the yule log outdoors. Due to COVID precautions, we’re sorry that absolutely no late sign ups/walk ins for the dinner will be allowed this year.


Quiet Christmas Service – Dec. 12

The hustle and bustle of the Christmas season is upon us. When the whole world seems to be merry and bright, we know that many struggle to feel – let alone repeat – the sounding joy. On December 12 at 4:00 p.m., join us for “A Quiet Christmas” – a time to acknowledge what we are missing this season: loved ones, big family gatherings, and anything that makes us feel happy and whole. The service will include scripture and softer seasonal music to create a time reflect, remember, and pray.


Heaven’s Song – Dec. 19

At both services, our church choirs will be joined by strings, organ, and brass for a collection of anthems, carols, and hymns that reflect a wide range of emotions, from the vast awesomeness of God to the rustic and humble scene at the manger.



Christmas Eve – Dec. 24

Service of Candlelight and Carols at 5:00 and 7:00 p.m.

Note: We will have a single Sunday service at 11:10 a.m. on December 26 and January 2. The church office will be closed on Friday, December 24 in the afternoon and all day on Friday, December 31 for the holidays.


Our halls are filled with activity . . . Find out what else is happening at church this week!

About Worship & Music

Based in the Reformed Tradition, the worship experience includes the reading and preaching of the Scriptures as well as expressions of prayer and praise. Music is a central part of worship with an exceptional program of music adding depth and vitality to the worship experience. The participation of children is valued in worship. Secured child care is provided for children up through age four, if desired.

We celebrate ”Open Communion” which means that if you are a baptized member of another Christian denomination you are welcome to share this sacrament with us. Communion is generally served on a monthly basis as part of the worship service.
