Special Services

Throughout the year, there are several special worship services that celebrate important holidays of the church. Christmas and Easter are prime examples, but there are also smaller holidays, like Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday.

  • Longest Night

    For all who struggle with grief, anxiety, or loss during the holiday season, or for anyone who might need a quieter space to think about the true meaning of Christmas, we offer a contemplative worship experience of word, music, silence, and prayer. All are welcome.

  • Christmas

    On Christmas Eve, we have four service times that each have their own flavor. At least two of these services will be livestreamed on Facebook.

  • Ash Wednesday

    This all-ages worship service will help you enter into a holy season of Lent with the imposition of ashes and holy communion.

  • Blessing of the Animals

    On Labor Day weekend, instead of our normal worship service in our building, we meet in the park and invite our members and our neighbors to bring their pets and stuffed animals for a special blessing in honor of St. Francis of Assisi.
