The winter solstice is December 21, so the night of the 20th will be the longest night of the year, the night with the most darkness, the deepest shadows. Gather in the beautiful stillness of the Cemetery Chapel. Whether you need a place to grieve this holiday season, or need a place of stillness in the midst of busyness, or wish to make the solstice, or need a place to remember God's promises of light in dark times - join us!
Christmas Eve Storytime
December 24th 3:30 pm
This is a special gathering for families with babies, toddlers and wiggly preschoolers who'd like to be in church, but sitting still for an hour is not an option! This 20 minute service will include carols, and a fun telling of the Christmas Story with visits from Mary, Joseph and angels! Everyone is welcome!
