Christmas Eve Candlelight Service of Lessons and Carols, 8:00PM

Our traditional Candlelight Service of Lessons and Carols has been filmed and pre-recorded in the Chapel for livestream release at 8:00PM on Christmas Eve. Special music will include a quartet anthem and carols with violinist, Ian Kerke, and a soprano-tenor duet, “O Holy Night.” After Pastor Boling’s meditation, “Bright Hope,” the service will conclude with candlelighting during the singing of “Silent Night.” Have your candles ready!

Illuminated Labyrinth, Tues. Dec. 1, 6:00-8:00PM

Ground yourself spiritually for Advent by walking our new 11-circuit, outdoor labyrinth, which will be illuminated by candlelight, Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020, 6:00-8:00PM. A labyrinth is a circular walking path that leads from the entrance to the center and back out. Three words serve as a guide to the experience: release (upon entering), receive (in the center), and return (at the end of your walk). Come to the lawn area on Beach St., near Park Place, anytime between 6:00-8:00PM. Walk when you are ready. Take as much time as you need. Dress warmly. Wear a mask (required).
The photos show our new labyrinth and an indoor version of the illuminated labyrinth that was offered last year.
We hope you will experience God’s presence on your labyrinth walk and throughout the season. You may return and walk the labyrinth any time during daylight hours.
