We would love to have you join us at any of our holiday services.

Holy Supper (Quarterly) – Adults of any denomination who wish to be conjoined by love and faith with the Lord Jesus Christ as the One God, are invited to partake of the Holy Supper. This is offered quarterly at the end of the regular service (or privately by appointment with the pastor). Those taking communion kneel at the chancel rail or sit in the front row if they cannot manage kneeling.

Palm Sunday – 10:30AM is a regular worship service. You may pick up a palm branch as you enter the church, to be carried forward and laid on the chancel during the first hymn.

Good Friday Evening – 7:00 PM service is for adults and consists of readings from the gospels concerning Jesus’ final week on earth, accompanied by appropriate readings from the Heavenly Doctrine. Holy Supper is included in this service.

Easter – 10:30 AM Family Festival Service. One address is given for all; there is no Sunday School. The congregation is invited to bring an offering of flowers to celebrate the Lord’s resurrection (cut flowers are donated to shut-ins and local charities, live plants will be added to our garden).

New Church Day (held on the Sunday nearest June 19th) – is a Family Festival Service. This celebrates an event recorded in True Christian Religion, namely, the Lord’s calling together of the disciples who had followed Him in the natural world, and the sending of them throughout the spiritual world to proclaim the good news that the Lord God Jesus Christ reigns. This took place on the 19th of June, 1770. We use this service to celebrate all that is implied by the Second Coming of the Lord.

Thanksgiving Family Service – 10:30AM  is a Family Festival Service. You are invited to bring fruit, vegetable or non-perishable offerings to the service for a harvest procession.This offering is a means to especially thank the Lord for all the harvest of natural and spiritual gifts that He gives. After the service, the offerings are boxed for delivery to shut-ins or a local charity.

Christmas Eve – a 5:00 PM Family Festival Service. One address is given for all; there is no Sunday School.
