Join us for Christmas Eve worship! The service will be less than an hour long and is designed to be a casual, welcoming, and meaningful worship experience particularly geared toward families with younger children. We include lessons, carols, candlelight, a children’s sermon, and an “instant pageant” where children and adults can become part of the Christmas Story. Contact: Rev. Mollie Landers Hatt.
Join us as we celebrate the birth of Christ with a traditional evening candlelight service and carols. We’ll start with a medley of Christmas songs at 7:00 pm, move into the service proper at 7:30 pm, and conclude with a candlelit Silent Night. Following the service, join us in the Fellowship Hall for hot cider and good conversation. Plan to arrive early, as this service is always packed!

This Sunday marks the end of the church year, as we’ll start a new year with Advent. Well before the ball drops in Times Square, it is a time to reflect on the ways God has been at work in our world, life, and self throughout the past year. Before we enter fully into Advent and preparing for the Christ child, this gives us a moment to pause, to prepare for what is yet to come, a time to marvel at the present. Join us this Sunday as Rev. Mollie preaches on God’s time and ways that God is with us from the beginning to end, and everything in between.

Let’s face it, most of us are worriers. We tend to fret over our jobs, our homes, even what clothes to wear. Sure, we take occasional breaks from our worry. Thanksgiving is time to relax, if only for a few hours, and give thanks for the abundance God has provided. Join us this Sunday as Rev. Curt preaches on how we can turn Thanksgiving into ‘Thanksliving’ all year round.

A rich young man came to Jesus and asked what it takes to inherit eternal life. Jesus answers, “You already know. Keep the commandments.” But the young man wasn’t satisfied. He wanted to do more. He wanted to go the extra mile. And Jesus responds, “In that case, you lack one thing.” Each of us lacks one thing. Some of us more than one, but all of us have something that’s holding us back from becoming the fullest version of ourselves. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on the things we have, the things we lack, and the journey of going the extra mile.

Many people are feeling hurt and angry right now. The confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh have again raised questions about sexual assault, rape culture, and the credibility of women speaking about their own experiences. And then we get this quote from the book of James, “let everyone be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger; for your anger does not produce God’s righteousness.” My response, “neither does acceptance or silence.” Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on using our voices (and anger) to produce the kind of change we need.

World Communion Sunday
World Communion Sunday offers us a distinctive opportunity to experience Holy Communion in the context of the global community of faith. The first Sunday of October has become a time when Christians in every culture break bread and pour the cup to remember and affirm Christ as the head of the church. On this day, we remember that we are part of the whole body of believers.

Praying As Jesus Taught
How often do you pray the Lord’s Prayer? Daily? Weekly? Every now and again? The Lord’s Prayer is so familiar to most of us that we sometimes can pray it without really thinking about what we are saying. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on giving new voice and new meaning to a prayer we know so well.

Coming In Second
We receive messages every day telling us, “more is better.” We are told we need to buy more, consume more, and have more. The push to compete and achieve is hard to resist. But Jesus saw things from a very different perspective. He teaches that the last shall be first and that serving others is our true calling. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on the spiritual discipline of saying, “enough is enough.”

There’s a Psalm for That
Beloved Pastor and translator of the Bible into The Message, Eugene Peterson names the Psalms as his entry into poetry, metaphor, and prayer. From praise to lament, from despair to joy, the Psalms give us rich words to call out and cry out to God. Join us this Sunday as Rev. Mollie preaches and we are invited to bring our whole selves before God, especially through the lens of the Psalms.
