Thanksgiving EveFor over forty years our church has held joint Thanksgiving Eve services with our neighboring Jewish Congregation, Temple Beth Sholom. The services alternate between the two houses of woship - with sermons by our Pastor and the Rabbi of Temple Beth Sholom.
Christmas EveThree services are held on Christmas Eve:
Ash WednesdayA simple service is held in Fellowship Hall at the start of the Lenten season - a time of preparation for the coming Easter. The service is followed by a light lunch.
