Sunday, December 20
Next Sunday morning, during the 10:15am Holy Eucharist service, we will air our first-ever Virtual Christmas pageant! Please make sure to watch the service on our YouTube page.
“Virtual Christmas Lessons and Carols”. The Piedmont Convocation of the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina will be offering a pre-recorded service of nine lessons and carols which will be available for your internet viewing pleasure as of the fourth Sunday of Advent at 4 p.m.

Several readers and musicians from Episcopal churches in Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union counties will be reading passages of scripture and offering hymns and/or musical selections for Christmastide. This promises to be a great way to gather churches in our community where in-person worship can currently only happen on a small scale. You can access this on our YouTube channel.
