December 21st is the longest night of the year, where there are more hours of darkness than light. Through this Longest Night Worship service, we hold space for the grief and loss of the year.
We remember that God joins us in our lament and holds us in tender care. This service offers space to share anguish, to plead with God to remember us, to pray for justice and restoration, even to hope against hope, through our doubts and tears and fears, that “God will set things right all over the earth.”
Upcoming Worship Opportunities
- Christmas Eve: Look for a pre-recorded service coming to your inboxes soon. You can also join for an outdoor, socially distanced service at 6pm. We will gather in the lower level parking lot. You can stay in your car or bring a lean chair to sit outside. Masks must be worn if you are outside of your vehicle.
- Christmas Day: Pastor Melissa has prepared a devotion that will be shared via email and on our website and Facebook page.
- Worship @ Home 12/27: In order to give worship leadership a break (pastor, tech support, worship assistants, etc.) you are invited and encouraged to lead your own worship service from your home. This simple liturgy invites you to carve out space for reflection, scripture, and prayer—using items you may have at home. It can be used by individuals or families with young children.
- Sunday January 3rd: We will be back on Zoom at our normal time of 9:15am. We will celebrate Epiphany and Pastor Matt Helfrich will be with us to preach and lead worship.
