Advent & Christmas
November 27 - January 8
The stories, scriptures, and traditions of the Christmas season have been passed down to us throughout the generations. Many of us enter this season with a swell of memories and emotions as vast as the cultural and religious rituals this holiday holds. Like a tapestry woven throughout time, the Christmas story weaves us in—to remember how God has shown up in the past, to continue God's work in the world, to behold the presence of God in flesh and bone. The work of God is always unfolding—in and through us. This Advent, may you remember that you belong—to a story etched into the wrinkles of time, to generations that have come before and will come after, to a love that won’t let you go.

The Longest Night is a worship service scheduled around the winter solstice, the longest night of the calendar year.
The service acknowledges that sometimes Christmas is marked by darkness, loneliness, sorrow, alienation, and sadness.
As we gather for worship, we will acknowledge and claim our feelings, creating space to name our grief and pain and brokenness. There are no magic words to fix all that is broken in our lives and our world, but when we name it, we can then search for a glimmer of light in the darkness.
