You are warmly invited to Park Avenue’s Service of Lament and Hope on Wednesday, Dec. 18, at 7pm.
Formerly “Quiet Christmas,” this worship service is for anyone feeling the weight of the holiday season. Come with your grief, your loneliness, your stress, your anxiety about the state of the world – and find rest.
The service features music, readings, and prayers that leave space for how difficult the holiday season can be, as well as opportunities to find hope and light amidst the darkness. All are welcome.
Whether you are able to attend or not, know that you are in our prayers during this season as we wait together for God to come again into a hurting world.
Meet Pastor Leah
The Reverend Leah Lyman Waldron is our pastor at Park Avenue. Leah’s vision for the church is pastoral care that helps people feel God’s loving presence, preaching that makes scripture come alive and illustrates how we might live out God’s call in our daily lives, and equipping the faith community to discern how the Spirit is calling us to make God’s love tangible in this world. Read more about Leah, and join us every Sunday morning at 10am for worship together.
