Holiday activities include an Easter Egg Hunt and several Christmas events: the Solstice Spiral Walk where participants carry candles to “bring light out into the world;” the Christmas Posada, a procession commemorating the experience of Mary and Joseph seeking shelter in Bethlehem (followed by a joyful celebration in MacLeish Hall); and our Instant Christmas Pageant (no rehearsal — just show up and participate!).
Service project opportunities include collecting donations for the Niños Project and volunteering at Feed My Starving Children. Potluck dinners incorporate themes like “Bingo Night” or talent shows. Families who aren’t able to attend church regularly during the summer can “take-out” church. Our pizza-style boxes contain a wooden token that can be decorated to commemorate summer adventures and brought back to church in the fall.
