Advent Services

AdventWreathAdvent is a busy time for many of us. Midweek worship during Advent is meant to be a respite, a time to slow down, if only for a few minutes, in order to reflect on the event that prompted all of the holiday activities in the first place—the coming of the Son of God, our Lord Jesus Christ, in the flesh.

Each Wednesday evening we will gather together

  • at 6:15 for a pot-luck supper
  • at 7:15 for a Christmas Carol hymn sing
  • at 7:30 for Evening Prayer
