Public health regulations (as of Nov. 30) require masks be worn for the duration of worship services and while entering and leaving the church building.

As of Dec. 12, all people over 12 years old attending worship will be required to be fully vaccinated.

Greeters are available at the Balmoral and Quadra doors on Sundays (the North Park door and parking lot will be open). Please wash or sanitize your hands. Singing is allowed. Social distancing will be maintained. The south balcony (on the Balmoral Rd. side) is being reserved for those who want to maintain minimal contact with others while attending services.

Did you ever consider that YOU are a “House for the Holy?”   Your life – your very being – is a place where hope, peace, joy, and love are housed. 

At Christmas, we remember that Jesus was born into a simple stable because there was no room in The Inn. So no matter how simple you believe your self, or your home, or your life to be, you are a containers for the Holy, a place where Divine Light can shine into the dark corners of this world.  You have a part to play in this pageant we call “life” in this community. You are sacred. You are worthy. You belong. 

Please join us for our Advent 2021 worship services, with the theme The Inn: Housing the Holy. We hope our weekly devotional reflections, accompanying each service below, will open the doors of your heart, mind, and soul and offer you hope, peace, joy, and love. You can read these on your own, you can share with your family. You can read them all at once or spread them out over weeks.

 Things you could use at home to create your own sacred space:

  •  Candles to make your own home-made Advent wreath
  •  Decorate a door in your house by adding something to it over time through Christmas as a symbol of growing welcome and hospitality in your heart and in your house
  • A journal if you want to have more space to write and reflect
