How do we ‘grow up into Christ?’ (Eph. 4:15) Stanley Hauerwas, in The Character of Virtue: Letters to a Godson lays out 15 different virtues and how they might shape the Christian life. Couched in letters to his godson, these virtues are neither simple nor simplistic. Join us for a rich discussion of how we best practice these virtues and live as ever more faithful Christians in today’s world.

There will be a free-will offering and a reception following the program.

Blue Christmas (Longest Night) Worship Service

Not feeling so jolly this Christmas? The loss of a loved one, anxiety, stress, transition – these are all very real parts of every life. For those who find themselves in a long, dark night of the soul, this worship service can offer a glimmer of light.  The Blue Christmas service can be a way of acknowledging grief.  It might be a way to connect with God through tears. Even in the midst of sorrow, we can find joy and peace.

If you, yourself, are not feeling sorrowful, maybe someone you know is. You can invite them to the service, or you can participate on their behalf, helping to boost the entire community.

What's the meaning of Christmas? Is it family, feasting, gift exchanges, cookies, light, love, celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ? All of the above? Christmas is multivalent - with meanings at every level of life. Come and share with others as we talk about all the meanings of Christmas. Bring a poem or brief reading to share.
