  • Service of Light 2019

    Posted on December 11, 2019 by in Community, Health and Wellness, Latest News, Spire link, Spiritual Practice, Worship

    The Service of Light is one way our church family remembers those who experience a loss of joy this holiday season. Designed to move from darkness to hope, the music, readings and candle lighting in the warmth of community open us to God’s quiet presence.
