Bring your candles!

This Sunday (Feb 2) at 9 am we will celebrate the feast of Candlemas at our Worship Outside the Box (WOTB) servce. Candlemas is a traditional Christian festival that commemorates the ritual purification of Mary 40 days after the birth of her son. It also marks the presentation of the infant Jesus in the temple. The Feast of Purification is called Candlemas because that was the day on which the year's supply of candles for the church were blessed.

Christians were observing this holiday in Jerusalem as early as the 4th Century A.D. By the middle of the 5th century, candles were lit on this day to symbolize that Jesus Christ was the light, the truth and the way.

Bring your candles this Sunday at 9 am for a blessing!

Epiphany Brunch!

Join us after the 10 am service this Sunday, January 6 for the annual Epiphany Brunch. Bring a main dish, salad or dessert if you like - or just come! It's a great time of fellowship, and our new youth worship band (Tyra, Evie, John and Dylan) will lead us in choruses and carols, as well as perform two high-energy songs from the musical "Godspell". See you there!
