Special Services

Lent — Throughout the season of Lent, leading up to Holy Week and Easter, we gather as a community for dinner (5:30pm) and worship (6:30pm) on Wednesday evenings. This year we will be using a service called Healing of the Nations.

Holy Week and Easter

Outdoor Worship – Each fall we gather outdoors for a special worship service in the midst of God’s creation at Catawba Meadows Park. After worship we spend time eating a picnic lunch together and engaging in fun and fellowship. The date of this year’s church picnic and outdoor worship will be announced later in the year, but usually happens in September.

Blessing of the Animals — Each year, we hold a special outdoor service where all of our special pet friends receive prayers and a blessing. The service is typically near October 4th, the Commemoration of St. Francis.

Reformation – The last Sunday of October is Reformation Sunday, which commemorates the reformation of the Christian Church led by Martin Luther in the 16th century. On this Sunday we have one combined service at 10:00am where we celebrate New Members and Confirmation. After worship we share a meal together.

All Saints Sunday — The first Sunday in November is All Saints Sunday, when we remember our loved ones who have died since the last All Saint’s Sunday, and give thanks for the whole church triumphant.

Christmas Eve, December 24th — We come together on this special night at 7:00pm for special music, followed by our Candlelight worship service at 7:30pm.
