Born in south Texas, Kemper Crabb has been an active Christian musician since his college days in the 70’s. In 1980, his group ArkAngel released Warrior which is considered a classic Tolkien-influenced art-rock album. His solo 1982 release The Vigil reflected a blend of Medieval and Celtic themes. He has recorded two Christmas albums (A Medieval Christmas, 1996; Downe in Yon Forrest, 2009). The latter is the soundtrack of a Christmas concert broadcast by PBS. His 2016 book, Liberation Front: Resurrecting the Church, calls the church to recover its world-changing vision as a colony of heaven on earth. Rooted in Reformed theology and ordained in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches, Kemper has served for many years in pastoral and teaching ministries.
This year’s period for members to nominate men for church office runs Sunday, September 1st – Sunday, September 15th.

In our Sunday evening services, Pastor Wright is teaching a series through the book of Joshua. This is an Old Testament book of action and intrigue with many exciting characters, but there is only one real hero of the book: Yahweh, the faithful God of the covenant. As Israel’s story unfolds, we see in it our own story. We also learn that Joshua of the Old Covenant pointed forward to the greater Joshua to come: Jesus Christ. Join us each Sunday as 5PM as we follow Israel into the Promised Land and are refreshed in the vision of our great covenant God.
You are invited to our annual Service of Lessons and Carols on Monday, December 24th, at 6 PM. We’ll have Scripture readings, singing of carols, and a brief devotional message. This is your chance to sing the unexpurgated version of “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.” What is that? Join us to find out!
Our men will begin a new study on Saturday, October 6, 7:30 – 9 AM. It is a video-based discussion series entitled, Authentic Manhood: A Man and His Traps. Topics to be addressed include idols, empty promises, control, significance & comfort, and more. Free study guides will be distributed at the meeting. Plan to join us the first Saturday each month for some good food, fellowship, and study together.
