Evensong: Weds, Dec 9, at 7:30 pm

Join us for our third Evensong service on Weds, Dec 9, 7:30-8:30 pm in the St. Stephen's Sanctuary.

This Anglican service of Evening Prayer, weaves together our rich tradition of scripture, prayer, and song. The music is in a modern folk style, drawing from traditional hymns and newer Christian songs. The music this Wednesday will also include some treasured Christmas carols.

As always, the service is open to the entire church.

Free childcare is available in the nursery.

PS--Here is one of my favorite prayers (used in this service) from the Book of Common Prayer:

Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all for your love's sake. Amen.
