Oak Ridge Christmas Parade: Socks and Mittens Needed

The Oak Ridge Christmas Parade is coming up on December 12, 2020 and we have big plans.

We are collecting new SOCKS (solid colors/ variety of sizes) and new MITTENS (solid colors/ variety of sizes) to distribute with the Christmas candy this year. The children and youth ministries have a goal of 1,000 pairs of each.

Get Ready for Advent

Pastor Donna shared a lesson this week on the season of Advent, it's meaning in the life of the church, and what we can do to prepare.

Join Us Sunday for a Special Service of Mourning and Hope

This Sunday, November 1 is All Saints Day, a time on the church calendar that we remember and grieve those who have died. This week's service will depart from our usual order of worship. It will offer us time to reflect on the one million lives around the world lost to Covid-19 and to mourn the many things we have lost this year. And it will be a time to seek the promises of hope that we find in Christ.

You are invited to participate in the service by having three candles (of any kind) prepared to light as the candles are lit on the alter at Kern during the service.

Holy Communion Vespers

Christ our Lord invites to his table all who love him, who earnestly repent of their sin and seek to live in peace with one another.

This World Communion Sunday, the table will be prepared for 20 in each session. You will bring your communion elements (bread/cracker/grain and juice). We will mask except for taking the bread and cup. Make your reservation today and come meet Christ at the table.
