O Come, O Come, Emmanuel!
The Wonder of Advent and Christmas
Advent, the season of waiting and expecting, and Christmas, the Holy Feast of Jesus Christ's birth, is upon us! As we anticipate the arrival of Christmas in our daily life and work, we also prepare spiritually through prayer and reflection. Both our Advent and Christmas Worship Schedule is outlined below. Please join us, as we anticipate the arrival of Christ and give thanks for his birth.
Services are hosted Sunday mornings online via Zoom at 9:00AM (contact: firstname.lastname@example.org for details). *Due to current constraints related to COVID19, outdoor in-person worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM is canceled until further notice. The Diocese has made one exception for outdoor, in-person worship on Christmas Eve. We will hold this service in the Church Yard on December 24th at 5:00 PM. The Sign-Up is available HERE. Service materials are accessible BELOW.
