Join us this season as we celebrate the coming of the Christ Child. During Advent we will take a careful look at the Magnificat - Mary’s beautiful prayer. Hear a variety of translations, perspectives, and musical variations. Enjoy the quiet blessings of our 175+ year old sanctuary - with banners created by Karen McElfish Studio.

5:30 p.m. - Come to the Manger! Become part of the celebration to welcome the newborn Christ Child. Stop by and play a role in the drama of an interactive nativity scene on the streets of Georgetown. Stop and play a role - costumes provided. What was it like to be a shepherd? Or a sheep? Or Joseph or Mary or . . . Perhaps a modern day observer?

6:30 p.m. - Worship of lessons and carols in the sanctuary of this historic church

Over the years, there have been many rifts and divisions over important issues such as Revolution, Slavery, War, who could administer the Sacraments, Race Relations, and Women's rights to be ministers. And now the issue of equal treatment of all God's children. All have been debated at this very pulpit from various sides of the issue.
