Welcome to Happenings! Craft Fair-Advent-Christmas and the real meaning of holiday cheer…





Advent is here! in this season of preparation, we will offer Blue Eucharists on Wednesdays at 6:30 for those who find this a season of struggle and loss. Bible Study will continue on Wednesdays at 7 pm, the special celebration of Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve Watchnight Service will take us into 2016. Ordinary activities in the midst of the holidays are equally important: feeding the hungry, encouraging wellness, and creating space for beauty and peace in our community.
