8:30 a.m. Quiet Reflective Service

December 16, 2018
08:30 AM / 09:30 AM

The early morning service (a more contemplative tone) continues!! But we have changed the time from 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.  The liturgy for the 8:30 a.m. service will be similar to the 10:30 a.m. celebration with the same sermon and texts, and Communion on the first Sunday of the month. The 8:30 a.m. service will not have musicians, except on rare occasion, with longer spaces for silence and reflection built into the flow of the service. There will not be Fellowship Time afterwards unless that evolves on its own.

10:30 a.m. Sunday Message and More

December 16, 2018
10:30 AM / 11:45 AM

WELCOME!

As a community of faith, we know some measure of God's grace, compassion, mercy, justice and peace, and it is our desire to share that love with you regardless of your age, race, gender, marital status, physical condition, sexual orientation, ethnic or economic background.

Large print worship bulletins are available in binders at the back of the sanctuary. Our ushers are happy to assist you.

Please join us for fellowship following the worship service.  ~ Rev. Dr. Curran Reichert

 

 

Celebration of Light and Lunch in Burlingame Hall

December 16, 2018
11:45 AM / 01:00 PM

December 16th following a brief Congregational Meeting to approve the budget and the slate of officers for 2019, everyone is invited to join in a Celebration of Light and Lunch in Burlingame Hall. Instead of a Christmas Pageant this year, Nancy Ladd is preparing a beautiful simple meal with our young people to be shared by all.

There will be a magical lantern procession and live music to accompany the festivities. Please plan to join us.

Living the Questions

December 18, 2018
11:00 AM / 12:00 PM


Tuesdays at 11 a.m. beginning November 6.
We will meet in the Sanctuary on Tuesdays from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. to reflect on the previous Sunday’s message as well as examine the scripture for the upcoming week. All are welcome to attend as you are able. Don’t feel you had to be present in worship to come to the group - you will still have plenty to offer.
