Jazz Prayer: Songs for Saints & Sinners

Friday, December 19, 2014 - 7:30pm - 8:30pm

Join us for a Holy Night, Holy Light, a joyous celebration of the Divine Light that comes to us in candle light, star light and soul light. You'll meet fellow lovers of jazz and prayer for an hour of great music, meaningful meditation and fun community, like this - an opportunity to exhale the week and inhale the weekendThird Friday of every month at 7:30 pm. There will be light snacks preceding the service for those who are rushing from work. Take a break, take a breath, slow down and prepare to inhale the weekend.

We're Expecting ...

... is the theme for Advent this year.  Each week as we grow closer to Christmas, we are reminded that a baby is being born.  This theme of expecting a baby is found in worship and in Social Ministry as we support Bundle of Joy - a project that supplies diapers to mothers-in-need. A crib in the sanctuary collects your diaper donations.

The worship service follows Marty Haugen's "Unfailing Light," a contemplative service giving time to consider how God might be born in our world, community and heart.  On December 14th, we enjoy our traditional Advent Jazz worship service led by our gifted jazz musician, Jonathan Oblander.
