Christmas Eve Service
We’ll be both in-person and online tomorrow at 7:00 pm. Please remember that masks are required, especially since we plan to sing (yes, sing!) ‘Silent Night’ as our closing song.  If we can, we’ll be outside, but we may be singing indoors.  (If so, we will exit the building immediately after the benediction.)  If you’re joining us online, have a candle ready to light.

Important!  This Sunday
Our worship service this Sunday will be online only due to the weather forecast.  Please join us in our Zoom room, Meeting ID 409 087 237

Naked in the New Year
