Blue Christmas Service

For many, Christmas can be a time of grief, struggle, sadness or a reminder of pain and loss. We recognize this at St. Michael’s and invite you to a quiet service of music, prayer and healing. We honor you right where you are, and invite you to be here even in the difficult aspects of the Holy Season. To volunteer to read, please contact Katherine+.
Greening of the Church

Come and help deck Saint Michael’s halls with greens and holly galore in preparation for the Christmas Feast! Please bring variegated greens (especially holly, spruce, hemlock—we have plenty of fir) from your property, clippers, and work gloves. Contact Katherine+ for information or to volunteer.

ALL ARE WELCOME!
We at St. Michael’s dream that everyone will experience the expression of God’s love, ever more enriched by the diversity of God’s own humanity among us. Love is expansive, inclusive and knows no bounds—whether it be race, color, gender, gender expression, age, ancestry, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, or if you are searching, seeking, or somewhere in between. We invite you to join us on a journey of discovery as we seek to love and serve God, each other, and all creation.
