Come feed your soul. Find a refuge from a hectic world. Enter into Advent and away from the commercialism of Christmas. Join us for prayer and song at this tranquil candlelight service. This elegantly simple form of worship uses the smoothing music of Taize, a Christian ecumenical community in eastern France. Worshippers experience the meditative power of Taize chant and a contemplative time for reflection. No matter who you are or where you are on your spiritual journey, please join us for this special time of prayer and reflection.

Rachel’s Vineyard weekends are a beautiful opportunity for any person who has struggled with the emotional or spiritual pain of abortion. The weekend is a very specific process designed to help you experience the mercy and compassion of God. It is also an opportunity to surface and release repressed feelings of anger, shame, guilt and grief.
Married couples, mothers, fathers, grandparents and siblings of aborted children, as well as persons who have been involved in the abortion industry are welcome to attend Rachel’s Vineyard in search of peace and inner healing. The weekend is a lot of work but yields a fruitful harvest for all who are willing to labor there.
