Christmas Eve Worship
4pm Festival Service 10pm Unplugged Service

We are pleased to offer two services on Christmas Eve (Saturday, December 24th):

4 PM Festival Christmas Eve Worship
A Christmas Eve service of storytelling and hymn singing, including a pop-up Christmas pageant and an activity for families with children. Both Zoom and in-person are encouraged. We will celebrate Communion and finish in candlelight (or LED light for young ones).

10 PM Unplugged Christmas Eve Worship
A quieter and more contemplative in-person, all candlelight service with Communion for the wondrous at heart. No Zoom, no computers or cameras, all acoustic, all welcome to the Abbey.

As usual, we will have NO service on Christmas Day (Sunday, December 25th). Enjoy time with loved ones, visit other congregations, or just revel in some holiday cheer!

While the HVAC project is still in progress, we now have some heat in the Great Hall! We will also have a station with tea/hot water/hot chocolate, and community members are welcome to bring snacks if they would like.

The roads are pretty icy and Saturday's forecast calls for more rain, but we still plan to hold worship in-person. We will clear the front steps and ramp and do what we can to make things safe at the Abbey, and Zoom is a great option for folks who aren't able to make the trip. 

In-Person and Zoom Services

Thank you for being gracious with us as we continue to adjust our practices according to the best science and the safety and comfort of our members in mind. There is no decision we can make that every person will be perfectly happy with. We know the mask mandate has been lifted but we are still requiring masks when worshiping in person for now. 

COVID PROTOCOL

  • Always remain masked when indoors at the Abbey (N95 or KN95 preferred). Masks will be available if you don't have one with you.
  • If you are speaking from the front, you may take off your mask.
  • If you are experiencing any COVID symptoms, please remain home at this time and participate on zoom instead. (Zoom is not remedial worship for the sick! There are many reasons people join online from week to week and will continue to do so!)
  • Continue to respect other's needs for safe distancing.

These guidelines are consistently being reviewed and updated by the COVID task force.

What to Expect
A Unique Experience

If you are coming from a very traditional church background you may find similarities in the prayers and shape of the liturgy, in some familiar tunes and occasional chanting, and in the Eucharist. But we also do things very differently—we strive to embrace a worship experience that honors all of who we are and what we bring to the table. That means we are not afraid to bring the world and culture around us into our worship time together, where secular and sacred are blurred. We embrace experimentation.
