Christmas Songs and Stories – December 15th: Not to be missed, this fabulous event is a chance to hear stories of Christmas–both from scripture and from contemporary takes on what Christmas is all about. We’ll sing familiar carols together, enjoy the choir sharing some anthems, and then relax over cookies and cider at a reception in the halls downstairs. Bring a friend, and get your Christmas on!

Prayers for Peace – December 20th : On the third Friday of each month, we gather at the peace pole in front of the doors of the church at 11:00 a.m. to pray for peace throughout the world. This brief service happens outdoors, rain or shine.
