Dec 24 – Christmas Eve Services

 

On December 24 St. Andrew’s will be holding two Christmas Eve services. Our morning service at 10:30am will be the children’s Christmas play. At 7:00pm we will be holding our traditional candlelit service of lessons and carols. Come join us as we celebrate the good news of Jesus being born into the world.

Dec 17 – Quiet Christmas Service

While the celebration of Christmas is a time of joy, it can also be a difficult time of year for many people.  Whether it is the shortened days, the financial stress that often comes with the holidays, or the loss of loved ones, the joy of Christmas is often accompanied by sadness. Quiet Christmas service offers a space where people can find some calm and care in the middle of all the busyness.

Join with us on Sunday December 17 at 4:30pm as we reflect the good news that Christ comes as light shining in the darkness.
