Merry Christmas!

We wish you and all a happy New Year! May we grow in our knowledge of God's peace and learn to dwell in it. We have our regular worship services on Sunday, December 30. On January 6, we have a special conversation about our Children's Ministry during the Adult Education hour. Most other programs will resume the following week. 


The funny thing about the church calendar is that there are so many. Our program and budget year runs July 1 to June 30. The year for the annual tax statements runs from January 1 to December 31. But our worship cycles wisely ignore those beginnings and endings, and center our lives in the life of Christ.

In the Christmas cycle we are shaped by the mystery of the incarnation, "The Word became flesh and made his home among us" (John 1:14). In the Easter cycle we are shaped by the resurrection for life in the new creation, "If anyone is in Christ, that person is part of the new creation. Everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!" (2 Corinthians 5:17)

And so we begin the year with Advent, with waiting and with wonder. We invite you to join us for our Advent worship services, seasonal adult Christian education opportunities,  and all the special celebrations on the road to Christmas...
