The 6 1/2-week period of fasting, self-reflection and spiritual practice that precedes Easter begins on Wednesday, March 6.
Join us on Sunday, July 29 for our first Bluegrass Mass! At 8 am, we'll worship inside just like normal: air-conditioning, church clothes and all. At 10:30, come dress comfortably: in shorts, t-shirts, straw hats, whatever!
Sunday, May 6 at 5pm, join us at the home of Bob and Paula Provine, 11178 County Road 94. Bring an appetizer to share and a symbol of how you’ll be working with the earth this summer.
Mark your calendars for Sunday, May 6 for Nativity's annual Rogation Sunday celebration, an ancient church tradition of blessing seeds and fields, and asking God's blessing for the growing season. This year we'll gather at the home of Bob and Paula Provine, 11178 County Road 94 off Money Road at 5pm. Bring a beverage, an appetizer to share, and some farming or gardening item to have blessed when Peter celebrates a simple outdoor Eucharist.
In Lent we bury the Alleluia, meaning we stop using the word in worship and in our hymns. As in Advent, we also give up the Gloria in excelcis, the festive music that comes just after the opening hymn at 10:30am worship.
To prepare for Easter, we gather as a church family to tell one another the story that makes all the difference for our lives, the story to which we entrust our lives. Here's a quick reminder of all the unique ways we worship and live out that story during Holy Week.
