Advent & Christmas Worship

December 13 Traditional Moravian Love Feast  Worship in the Sanctuary, 6:30 p.m.
While the Moravians celebrate the Love Feast throughout the year, our tradition has been to celebrate the Love feast around Christmas time.  The Christmas Love Feast is most special with the candles, trimmed in red, as reminders of the light of Christ’s love and of his life given for us.  Join us following dinner for a unique worship experience of song & prayer,  candles & coffee, and of course sweet Moravian cookies! Worship begins with a prelude by our youth band, and is led by our youth with assistance from both of our Children’s Choirs.

January 10  Epiphany of the Lord Worship Service in the Sanctuary, 6:30 p.m.
The Christmas season concludes on January 6, Epiphany of the Lord, which falls on a Saturday in 2018.  Following dinner and fellowship together at tables we will gather in the sanctuary for worship.  Epiphany means “manifestation,” and Epiphany worship celebrates the manifestation of God in the birth of Jesus Christ, expressed in the symbol of the star and the journey of the Magi.  Our Epiphany service is a Communion service, and it also will include our annual ritual of selecting a “star word” for the coming year.
