Blue Christmas

Sunday, December 8 at 7:30 pm

A reflective service to ease lament and provide hope.

A worship service of lament and hope, anticipation and longing,  restoration and renewal. The service is structured around three distinct movements of “hearing us”, “healing us” and “sending us.” We provide space for personal and communal reflection. The worship experience provides generous amounts of silence that are woven throughout.


There are years when we hurt at Christmas time and may not be able to navigate through the festivities as others seem to do with joy. It is at such times we need to be mindful and attentive to our feelings and concerns. We need to know that we are not alone in moments like these.


We hope you consider joining us or inviting others in the community who may accompany you as you support them. This is a time of the year when we long for peace. Let us journey   together with meditation, prayer, music and acts of restoration that help us entertain a renewed message of hope.

Love in a Glovebox Service Project

Care kits for the homeless are available in the fellowship area. Pick up on Sundays between worship services or during church office hours M-F, 9 am - 5 pm.

Inspired by a discussion during a council meeting, council members created a new imitative, which is designed to help create care kits for the homeless. These kits can be kept in a vehicle glove box and then given to those in need to let people know they have been seen and to offer a moment of God’s mercy.


On Sunday, August 18 between the worship services, kits were assembled. Each kit includes: toothpaste, a toothbrush, deodorant, cheese cracker sandwiches, fruit snacks, a comb, hand sanitizer, band aids, tissues, lip balm, Motrin, hand wipes, socks, and a $5 McDonalds gift card. 


We assembled 400 kits. These were blessed on Rally Day (Sunday, September 8). Feel free to pick up a couple to keep in your glovebox and distribute. 

Thank you to everyone who donated and packed, and a special thank you to Deb Sherrock for ordering the supplies.
