Longest Night Service

Monday December 21 ~ 7:00 PM

A service acknowledging our past struggles. As we approach December 21, the longest night of the year, we are reminded of diminishing light that leads into deepest night. For anyone who has experienced loss in recent years, whether loss of a beloved person, pet, marriage, job or good health, this "joyous" time of year may be especially difficult. Or perhaps Covid-19 has added an extra layer of uncertainty along with loss of freedom. Whatever the reason, we may be longing for just a quiet, reflective time to recognize that life is not always filled with joy. This service will acknowledge our struggles, but will also remind us of light-filled hope that is ever-present. All are welcome to view online.

 

 

 


Please note that our in person congregation is currently restricted to 50 people only in the Sanctuary. At this time we do not have the capability to show the service in rooms A and B so have no overflow, however, we will be live streaming the service to your homes. Once you have had the time to review the documents below, we ask you to call Shelley or Ruth at the office 902 434-8302 to reserve a seat at the upcoming service. This first 50 people to call will be registered for the service. When you call you will be informed if you are in the first 50. If you are not, you can have your name added to the top of the list for the following week’s service if you wish to attend that date. We hope to be able to make more seats available as time goes by (some of this is also restricted by volunteer numbers). We have removed our pew cushions as well, and they will not be available for worship. If you need a cushion, please remember to bring one from home.

Please follow this link to our Facebook page video which will give you a visual overview of how we will be entering and leaving the sanctuary. https://www.facebook.com/225061367549330/videos/339398760591955/


You must call by Thursday at noon of the week prior to the service to register (ie for Sept 20th Sunday service call by Sept 17th….the sooner the better.
