Sunday, December 16
5:00 p.m., Chapel

As Christmas approaches, the Starlight Service of Remembrance is a time to remember the events of years past.  It is especially a time of reflection for anyone who has experienced life changing events whether through death, loss of a relationship, loss of job, loss of health, or other significant events.

Music, readings, lighting of candles, prayers, and communion will all be part of this special Advent worship service. Please join us.


Contemplative worship can enrich and enhance our personal connection with God. Four times a year on the third Sunday of a month (October, December, February, and April), River Road will hold a Contemplative Worship and Communion Service.  In the more intimate setting of the Chapel and drawing from a variety of musical and liturgical traditions such as Taize, Anglican, Evensong, and Celtic, we will encounter the Holy Other and seek to bring our presence into the Divine Presence.

For those who have attended the Celtic Evensong & Communion services of the past, you will find much that is familiar. For those who have yet to experience this style of worship, we hope you will accept this invitation to perhaps step outside your comfort zone and to foster your own spiritual formation as we seek God’s presence together.
