We Gather Together

On Sundays we are gathering in person for worship. We ask you to wear your mask and stay safely distanced while on our church campus. We want to remember our youngest members and those who are immunocompromised or receiving other treatment.

Our Christmas Eve Service will be at 4:00 pm in person. Our Christmas Day Service will be on Zoom at 10:30 am. Sunday December 26 services will be in person at 8:30 & 10:30 am

Worship with us on Sundays in person at

8:30 & 10:30 am Holy Communion

The 10:30am service will be live-streamed on YouTube and Facebook. We do not pass the Peace as before, but we do sing with our masks and partake of communion in one kind, the bread. We will continue to monitor infection numbers and make changes, as necessary. Check our Facebook page and Enews archive for the most up to date information.

The last two hears have hit everyone hard. The isolation, the fear, the grief – it is a different life than we ever have known. But God works in mysterious ways, and God is with us every day. Our community of faith binds us together in times like this. There was a phone tree, people checking in. There are children’s messages with a hand puppet, bringing a smile and silliness on Sundays. There is beautiful music. There is technology, possible for us to see each other, talk with each other and learn together. We are taking on hard subjects and bringing our true selves into the conversations. God is here with us.

We are baptizing children, remembering loved ones we see no longer. We are gathering food and resources for those on the street. We are giving of ourselves over and over, and our cup runneth over still with joy, love, and grace. We are still here.

If you need someone, we are here. Pastor Stewart and Pastor Don are happy to make themselves available for virtual or phone conversations, or safely distanced and masked chats at the church or on your front porch. Just send them an email or call the office to schedule.

We are a community. We are a community of faith, and love, and we believe in joy, and laughter, and the power of a good old-fashioned garden to heal our souls. Welcome to The Church of the Nativity and Holy Comforter.

Lutherpalian: not just an adjective – it’s a choice.

In a state which is solidly democratic with a Republican Governor, in a city which has suffered from systemic racism and all of the attending tragedies and yet has a heart and soul that is the envy of other big cities, in a time when fewer people are engaged in organized religion, and during a raging worldwide pandemic, we thrive.

We the people, the congregation, we choose to worship together. We were born into the Lutheran faith. We were born into the Episcopal Church. Or maybe we decided later to affirm our faith in a church that would embrace us. This is our church.

We hail from nine countries, we speak different languages, have gone to different schools, live in different communities, love who we love, and we are politically diverse in a time when few organizations are. We laugh, we listen, we feel the power of prayer, and the grace of music. Our sanctuary is blessed with beauty, our parish hall with the sound of children’s voices. Jesus is here. Joy is here.

We are a casserole-making, tree-planting, food-donating, room-painting, bunch of Christians who choose to value doing over talking, love over hate, prayer over violence, and we welcome the stranger. It’s that simple. Come join us.

Welcome Home!

We are a diverse and non-judgmental community, grounded in the unconditional love of God.

We live out our faith by serving our neighbors and partnering with others to change the world.

We believe Jesus inspires our worship, our service, and our joy.
We welcome people of every race, national origin, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, physical or mental ability, sex, political perspective or socio-economic status. Rather than using our differences to divide us, we pledge to use our differences as gifts for our work together.
