We are a liturgical church–meaning we follow the seasons of the church year.
We begin waiting for the coming of Christmas and the Christ child during the four weeks before Christmas called Advent. We deck out the church in holiday symbols and greenery, light candles that represent our waiting and build to the excitement and celebration of our Christmas Eve Service.
We observe Lent, beginning with Ash Wednesday and we don’t just do Easter, but the whole Holy Week–with a Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday Service. Then when Easter finally does arrive, we celebrate wildly with a Bluegrass Service outside in our courtyard.
At least once a year, the church leaves the building for World Communion Sunday on the first Sunday in October. We head out to worship and break bread at Burns Park.
