Not everyone experiences happiness at the Christmas holidays. In this season of joy and love, many struggle with darkness and grief. Calvary Church is creating a sacred and safe space for people facing loss of any kind.
This Holy Communion will be a quiet and meditative service of prayers and readings reminding us that God is with us wherever we may be, a light in the darkness. For this brief service, we share in the quiet darkness of this season, we privately remember times of joy, and we pray with and for people everywhere who long for a future sustained by hope and grace.
The service will last about 45 minutes and a reception will follow.
December 15, 4:00 p.m.
Great Music at Calvary presents a Festival of Lessons & Carols, which is a favorite holiday tradition based on the traditional service from King’s College in Cambridge. Lessons and Carols celebrates Christmas through word, choral reflections, and congregational carols. This year will highlight works of diverse styles from different countries, including pieces by Poulenc, Rutter, Gardner, and Willcocks. A pre-service concert featuring the York Consort, a viol ensemble, begins at 3:30. A freewill offering will be accepted to support Great Music at Calvary. Mark your calendar and invite a friend to join you!

Good Grief is a support group for anyone who is having difficulty with a loss. It may be a pet, a divorce, or death of a loved one...whatever it is you are suffering, feel free to bring yourself and share, if you wish, your hurt with a group willing to listen. Or listen to the stories of others. It all can help. People of any - or no - denomination are welcome. In fact, all are welcome.
