Advent at Wycliffe

For those who grieve

The Longest Night

The holidays can bring a time of particular challenge for those who have lost loved ones, or who deal with loneliness. 

Wycliffe offers two times of comfort: an in-person service at 5pm in the church sanctuary, and an online time of music, scripture & reflections, both on Thursday, December 21st. 

"Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning."  (Psalm 30)

Wycliffe continues its "Angels" theme during Christmas Eve's morning service with special music & leadership by several of our children (and a blessing for each child) with a re-telling of the Nativity story with YOU joining! (when was the last time you had a chance to be a sheep or Wise Man?).

In the evening at 5pm, the Harbor String Quartet leads us into this holy night beginning with a 4:40p prelude, followed by congregational carol-singing, music by the Chancel Choir, bells & instruments, led by Rev. Dr. Garrett Bugg and Rev. Lyndsey McCall-Gilliam

Women's Christmas

There's an ancient Irish tradition that offers women a "day off" on Epiphany. So the men-folk tend the children & hearth and women rest from the busy rush and extra work of the Christmas season.  THIS is "Women's Christmas."    Wycliffe's American version offers an hour of contemplation & reflection through poetry, readings & music as we look ahead to the new year unfolding.  Join us! - and bring a friend.

Sundays during the Worship Hour

Children's Sunday School

Pre-schoolers through 5th graders leave the sanctuary after "children's time with the pastor" (about 10:10am) to enjoy Bible stories, activities & crafts. 

Nursery is available for infants & toddlers.  When you arrive, an usher will direct you to the nursery if you'd prefer your young child to start their time there - but all ages are always welcomed to be in the sanctuary with their family.
