Advent & Christmas Services

This year’s Advent midweek services focus on the life and ministry of St. John the Baptist. John was one appointed by God to prepare the way for the promised Messiah by calling sinners to repentance. John did so, even to the point of martyrdom. The added benefit of this year’s series is that the system of readings for Sundays allows us to hear of John’s imprisonment and question about the Christ on the Third Sunday in Advent.


As John prepared those of his day to receive the Messiah, so may hearing of John’s life and preaching prepare us to celebrate with joy the birth of our Lord and Christ!

The evening service will be preceded by a sloppy joe supper, served by the Women’s Guild at 5:45 pm


Wednesday, December 13: The Preaching of John

Wednesday, December 20: The Beheading of John

Since Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday, the service schedule is a bit different from other years. There will be no Sunday School or Adult Bible Class on Sunday, Dec. 24. There will be a Divine Service at 10:00 am. Instead of the usual observance of the Fourth Sunday in Advent, there is a special service with its own readings and other propers that is observed when Christmas Eve day falls on a Sunday. It is still a service of Advent, but is observed as the Vigil of the Nativity.


Our customary Christmas Eve Divine Service will be the evening of the 24th at 6:30 pm, and there will be a Christmas Day Divine Service at 10:00 am on December 25.
