Throughout the year, we have special worship services in addition to our regular Sunday services. Either our Adult Choir or special musicians participate in all such services. These worship experiences help us to enrich and deepen our faith in moving and memorable ways and typically include: Ash Wednesday – a time to begin the journey through the season of Lent using prayer, Scripture, readings, and songs. Maundy Thursday – a simple soup and bread supper flows into a Seder (Passover) meal and communion. Worship continues with a Tenebrae (“shadows”) service using candlelight. Good Friday – our sanctuary is open for prayer and contemplation. Reading material and visual media is available, and all are welcome to sit quietly for a while. Easter Daybreak Service – an early morning outdoor service in collaboration with the Casco Village Church. This service tends to be non-traditional and includes a breakfast at the Casco Church. Dress warmly!! Advent Vespers Service – an opportunity in December to rejoice in the coming season as well as to acknowledge the stressors that so often accompanies it. This is a quiet and contemplative service with carols, readings, and candlelight. Christmas Service for the Young and Young at Heart – a special Christmas service for the children and youth of our church featuring a St. Lucia Procession and a special Christmas story. Children are invited to bring their Christmas stocking filled with items for the Raymond Food Pantry and have it blessed. Christmas Eve – two candlelight services are offered: a late afternoon one for families and a late evening one with communion. The family service generally includes a traditional dramatic retelling of the story of the birth of Jesus. The late service includes Scripture, carols, readings, and communion.
