May at Nativity: Part Two

Hello – On Monday, work begins on the Hardin Courtyard. While the Preschool will continue to be on our campus, everything else moves up to Nativity Church at 333 Ellen Drive for the month of May. Last week, I shared with you the news that our shared worship services on Sundays will be at the […]

Our Three Easters

Hello – The first two of our three great services have been unusually powerful and well attended. Now, for the third and final act, you have three choices: 1. The Easter Vigil. Saturday at 7:30 pm.

The Great Three Days

Psalm-athon this Saturday

Hello – An ancient Christian practice is to read the entire Psalter, all 150 psalms, at one time. I first heard about the practice in an account of Little Gidding, which was a small community of devoted Christian families in England in the 17th century.
