Blue Christmas

This special annual service acknowledges that sometimes the Christmas season is hard for those that have experienced the loss of a loved one. In 2023, the Blue Christmas service was on Monday, December 4th.   Enjoy the video of the 2023 service below.


Moravian Love Feast

The Love Feast is an ancient observance, dating from the early days of the Christian Church. You may find it mentioned in Acts, Chapter 2. It is a simple meal of the faithful in a service of worship.  Christ Our Shepherd's Love Feast includes Christmas music in several styles. Sanctuary Choir will be accompanied by the Brass and Flute Choirs, handbells, Da Chiesa strings, percussion and timpani, musicians from the church’s contemporary worship service, and the Love Feast Consort. These groups play a musical offering/prelude 30 minutes before each Love Feast, beginning with carols by the combined “church band” outside the sanctuary. The congregation joins in singing beloved carols. All are welcome. 

Assured Seating Cards are available in advance for the Moravian Love Feast a few weeks before the service.  

Enjoy this video of the 2023 service.
