The Colors of Christmas

A reflection on preparing for Christmas - A resource from Women of the ELCA

Ah, tradition. Our families and celebrations are often sprinkled with seasonal traditions that bring us joy and remind us of times gone by or people who have graced our lives. These traditions often add an element of comfort as well as enrichment to our special moments.  But do you know where or when your traditions began? Do you know the meaning behind the traditions you hold so dear? This resource takes a look at the some of the customs around one of our favorite celebrations -- Christmas!

Holy Communion

We practice open communion weekly as we welcome all who honor Christ as their Savior to receive His true body and blood in our holy sacrament.  Both white grape juice and wine are offered.  Gluten-free wafers are available.  Children are invited forward for a blessing.  Our ushers will assist with any questions.
