Our motto 'shape a circle ever wider and a people ever free' is a good reflection of who we are, as is the banner outside of our church that says 'Join us around a table where all are welcome.'
Worship services of Holy Communion (also called the Mass, Holy Eucharist, or the Lord's Supper) are at 8 and 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings. Come and join us!

December 14 - Advent Quiet Day
December tends to be a busy time of year for everyone. It is also during this time that we move into the season of Advent, which is, in its essence, an antidote to being busy. It is meant to be a time to slow down, savor the waiting for Jesus' birth, and reflect on what is important in our lives. We will be holding an Advent Quiet Day to create a space of prayer and a time of quiet reflection in hopes that we will truly experience the meaning of Advent. We will begin at 8:45 and end at 12 noon. Hope to see you there.
December 19 - Special Advent Liturgy
There will be a service of quiet, contemplation, and meditative singing in the Taize style at 7:00 PM. If you would like some time for reflection and peace before the week of Christmas, this is a service for you.
December 22 - Tailgate Party
Are you Team Senior Warden (Ravens) or Team Rector (Patriots)? Well whichever side you're on (and you do have to pick one for this party) come join us at 3:30 in Miller Hall where we will share food and fellowship before watching the Ravens take on the Patriots at 4:25. Will we see the Ravens knock the Patriots out of their 2nd seeded playoff perch? Join us and find out. The party is potluck style so bring your favorite tailgating food and drink.
Consider making a donation for Christmas flowers for this year. You can celebrate or remember a special person or event in your life.
