Please join us tonight at 7:00 pm for our Quieter Christmas prayer service. This is a candlelit service of prayer and traditional Advent hymns wherein we pray for those we love (and perhaps have lost) and where we experience the power of Advent but in a softer way. No demands for happy-clappy at this service; this service lets us feel all our feelings and invites us to lay them in the loving arms of God. It’s perfect for those who find the hyper-commercialization of the secular Christmas season just too much to bear.
A simple supper will be offered at 6:30 pm. You don’t need to bring anything, just show up and be nourished in body and soul.
All in the community are warmly invited to attend. Bring a friend, and come experience this lovely and peaceful time.
