SERMONS

Christmas Pageant  Sunday, January 2 at 10am



We strive to know Christ more deeply and bring others to his redeeming grace.

Epiphany Burning of the Greens  
Thurs, January 6, 5:30pm at the church and off-site

On Epiphany we will be burning our Christmas greens with a giant bonfire celebrating the light of Christ entering the world. Meet at the church at around 5:30pm after Evening Prayer to "un-green" our church and then head on over to the VanderZanden's residence at around 6:30pm with your own Christmas trees and other greens, to add them to the bonfire. They will serve Epiphany cake and non-alcoholic wassail punch. Feel free to bring your leftover Christmas food to share with one another. Please contact us if you need the address.​​

Epiphany Hymn Study 
Wed, January 5, 7pm on Zoom

Our organist and minister of music Dr. Jeannine Jordan will lead us in an Epiphany hymn study for this season in which we celebrate the revelation of Jesus's human and divine nature.
