A Gift of Comfort and Joy

days 'til Comfort & Joy!

The Joy Continues

In December 2020, Comfort & Joy made its triumphant debut and was one of the highlights of the year for our community. Comfort & Joy is a month-long virtual advent calendar that brings joy to the community through a series of daily activities and events in the form of virtual concerts, recipes, trivia, and more. But in case you missed it, not to worry. This year's celebration promises to be bigger, better, and even more joyful. We were overwhelmed by the amazing response last year and are already planning performers, activities, and sponsors to make Comfort & Joy 2021 even more memorable!

    As holiday anticipation grows, we offer time for reflections of hope, love, joy, and peace. Even time spent with family and loved ones online and on the phone can create a shared awareness of light during cold, dark winter nights.
