Merry Christmas Eve!

The staff has been hard at work for months preparing for and getting excited about this day. Unfortunately though, as we know all too well, Covid doesn't much care how long you've been preparing and will do what it wants, when it wants.

After learning of a positive Covid case on staff and subsequently, the significant exposure of others in our community, we are making adjustments to our Christmas Eve and December 26 worship schedule in the interest of the health and safety of this community.

Our 10 AM Family Service will continue as planned. This will be an interactive telling of the Christmas story and a nativity-themed petting zoo.

Our 5:30 PM Candlelight Communion service will be moved to the lower parking lot. Please bring a chair. Though childcare will not be available, we will have a designated children's area, as we do in our usual 9:00 worship service.

*Please note: If you wish to worship online, the staff will pre-record a worship service in the sanctuary tomorrow afternoon which will air on YouTube at 5:30 PM for all who wish to worship from home.

On Sunday, December 26, we will not worship in person. Worship will be available on YouTube.

I look forward to celebrating this day with you however you decide to worship with us.

With great hope,
10:00 AM
