Come to the Episcopal Church on the Island for two meaningful services celebrating the Nativity of Jesus. Since we are a family sized worshipping community, it feels a little like we're all linked by our love of the Island and the traditional offerings of the Christmas season. We'd like you to be part of our family.
On Christmas Eve, December 24, our service will take the format of a Candle and Carol service (no Eucharist). It's designed to gather us all together and sing the familiar carols and hear the Christmas narrative once again. You'll have to supply the imaginary snow and mountain vistas if you want. We'll be warm on the inside as we sit side by side and experience the glow of the candles while we sing "Silent Night.."
We especially invite younger participants. The service will be very family friendly. Come at 4:45 pm to warm up with some carols and then the service begins at 5:00 pm. Who knows, maybe Santa will have dropped off candy canes for good little girls and boys (adults too!).
On Sunday our worship begins at 10:00 am. The Celebration of the Nativity is the focus with the Holy Eucharist offered for all. Our music will be provided by our guitar group, The Echoes. Much of the Christmas music plays very well on stringed instruments. Our service is cheerful and a celebration of the gift of Jesus as the icon and Son of God.
