For many the Christmas season is a melancholy time. Some remember unhappy family holidays; some have no birth family to celebrate with; others have lost important people during the holiday season.
For them--and anyone else feeling overwhelmed or underwhelmed by holiday preparations, we offer our Blue Christmas service. It is a reflective service and a place to mentally prepare for the holidays.
Palm Sunday service with Palm processional
Maundy Thursday communion service
Worship service of recognition and celebration of our commitment, advocacy, and love for the LGBTQ community. We share our stories, joys, tears, and hopes as members of the LGBTQ community and their straight allies. Highlighted by nationally-known speakers, special music, and rainbows.
Blessing of the Animals
We have an annual special service to bless our pets and acknowledge the bonds between all living things. Our pets come to church for a lively celebration. Our children particularly love this service, but it is a favorite of our adults as well!
Each year our senior and middle high school youth develop and lead a Sunday Service. Working with our Youth Director, the group develops the entire worship service, including readings, sermon, children's experience and music. Our congregation finds this to be one of the most meaningul services of the year.
Worship at Lake Needwood
At the beginning of summer, we have a special service at Lake Needwood to celebrate the beauty of our natural world. Acoustic music is provided by member musicians. After worship we share a potluck brunch by the lake!
