February continues the Season of Light, the Season of Epiphany. Here is the Schedule of Services and Activities

Sunday Service:

We gather each Sunday at 10:00 a.m. for worship and prayer, incorporating lovely music into our service. Child care for those five years and younger is provided. Elementary school age children go to class for the first half of the service and return to join us for communion. Our youth (J-Walkers) are encouraged to help the younger children with their Church School class and activities.

Following the service, we gather in the Parish Hall for fellowship and delicious food, thus extending our community’s time together. Please join us on Sunday morning.

Wednesday Evening Service:

Each Wednesday evening, we gather at 7:00 p.m. for our midweek service. On the 2nd Wednesday of the month, we enjoy the music of the Taize community in France with quiet readings interspersed throughout. Candles and time for reflection make this a very calming time.

On the other Wednesday nights of the month, we celebrate a quiet, contemplative Holy Eucharist. All are invited to worship with us mid-week.
