Our evening Christmas Eve services are always special, with three different, distinctive and very beautiful worship services.

4:00 PM - Child-Friendly Pageant with Carols The Christmas story will be read, carols will be sung, and our children will participate in a lively, even raucous, pageant. We will light the Christ candle at the center of our Advent wreath and conclude with a candlelight recessional to the courtyard. Childcare is available for this service

Faith Formation at 9 am

We have some exciting new programs and a new format for Sunday mornings! The biggest shift is that we will now have an educational hour with programming for all ages 9:00-10:15am every Sunday morning. The whole church will join in worship at 10:30am, with the option for children to continue to Children’s Worship in the Chapel with Pastor Rachel after the Children’s Sermon.

There is a place for everyone starting at 9 am - click here for schedule information

Sunday Worship at 10:30 am


Following our Faith Formation at 9 am on Sunday mornings, the whole church will join in worship at 10:30am. All people are welcome in worship, and we encourage babies and toddlers to attend with their families! A diaper-changing station is located in the bathroom off the Fireside Room.

Immediately following worship we invite you to share conversation and fellowship during our Coffee Hour in the courtyard.
