2021 Christmas Eve Service
Featuring our traditional, though fully masked, worship service of carols and readings!
Our bell choir has been practicing for months to present three prelude arrangements for your listening pleasure! And our choir and congregational singing has also resumed, led by our own Joe Orbin on the pipe organ and accompanied by Sarah Matthews on the piano and Bob King on trumpet. We hope you are blessed by this year's offerings!

2020: Unique Services for a Unique Year
"To everything there is a season" according to our Bible (Ecclesiastes 3). God is to be praised ...even in this strange and physically distanced pandemic year. To that end, Pastor Cara and our worship team have blessed us with two uniquely different Christmas services: one, a celebration of the Christmas Story in scripture and song; the other, a brief and contemplative candle lighting ceremony "in a minor key." May you find blessing, comfort and joy in one or both of these presentations.
Our 2020 Christmas Eve Service
Featuring our friend and Special Guest artist, local celebrity Robin Burnett, singing Silent Night!
We are thrilled to present a somewhat different, COVID-aware version of our traditional Christmas Carol Sing-along, providing both vocal solos and duets during the 2020 Advent Season! Hum along behind your mask if you attend in person, or sing aloud in the privacy of your own home; music makes a huge difference this season, doesn't it?!
All seasonal music was pre-recorded in our empty sanctuary over the course of several weeks for the safety of all. Solos were performed by Vicki Kosthorst with Sarah Matthews on the piano, and by Darla Hall with Joe Orbin on the pipe organ. Trios were sung at a safe physical distance by Nan Woodworth, and Bob & Bettina King, accompanied by Joe Orbin on the organ.
"Christmas in a Minor Key"
Keeping in mind those for whom this may be a difficult season: we present a brief service of prayer, contemplation, tradition and reflection.
All seasonal music was pre-recorded in our empty sanctuary during the previous several weeks for the safety of all involved. Solos are performed by Vicki Kosthorst with Sarah Matthews on the piano, and by Darla Hall with Joe Orbin on the pipe organ. Duets are sung at a safe physical distance by Nan Woodworth and Bob King, and accompanied by Joe Orbin on the organ.
Just the Music!
