Join us for Christmas Eve!

We look forward to celebrating the greatest gift ever given to us — the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus — with you and your family & friends!

We will offer three identical Christmas Eve services on Friday, December 24 at 3:00, 4:30 and 6:00 PM in the Worship Center and online. If you plan to join us in-person we ask that you reserve your tickets early as seating will be limited. And yes, the Nativity Petting zoo will be available on Christmas Eve in the Family Life Center!

Questions? Please contact Alison Morrow.

Reserve your tickets:

3:00 PM Service
4:30 PM Service
6:00 PM Service
NOTE: When our services have reached capacity, registration will automatically close. However, you can still worship with us online!

Celebrate Christmas Eve Online!

If you are unable to attend in-person, you may still celebrate with us at our online campus. We will be streaming during our scheduled Christmas Eve service times of 3:00, 4:30 and 6:00 PM — then we will broadcast the service every hour from 7:00 PM to Midnight.

Nativity Animals

Be sure to join us in the Family Life Center from 2:30 to 7:30 PM on Christmas Eve!

Camels, llamas, donkeys and other animals will be in the FLC (like always), but due to COVID, we will need to limit how many families enter the area and control the flow of traffic so that there is only one entrance (near the Checkpoint Desk) and one exit (near the Atrium). We are also asking parents and kids to please not pet the animals.

This long-time family favorite will still be a highlight of your evening, so be sure to stop by. Registration is not required.

“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

(Luke 2:14)

Operation Christmas Child

Christmas is the time of year when we celebrate and remember the gift of Jesus to a world that desperately needs a savior.  His birth, ministry, death and resurrection are what gives us the eternal hope that moves us to serve our Lord and the teachings that defines what it means to “love our neighbor.”

Operation Christmas Child is a wonderful way to share God’s love with the children of the world. Each shoebox is unique and filled with gifts to offer encouragement, fun and joy — and you can fully customize your shoebox online!

For more information, please visit our Operation Christmas Child website.

Sunday, December 26

Christmas is a time for remembering and celebrating the birth of our Lord. Many of us celebrate the holiday with big meals and large get-togethers while others prefer to keep it more lowkey and private.

In whatever way you prefer to celebrate the birth of our Lord, we feel it is important as a church family for us to take a Sunday to gather all of us together for a morning of worship. Therefore, on Sunday, December 26 we are offering only one worship service on Sunday at 9:45 AM. All kids, youth and adult classes will NOT be meeting that Sunday.

Please join us in worship at 9:45 AM. (And yes, you may also worship with us online at the same time.)

If you’re struggling…

We know this year has been difficult for everyone, but for some of us it has been near unbearable. And now, with the holiday season coming, it might feel even worse. While Christmas is supposed to be a time of ‘great joy,’ it doesn’t always feel that way. Sometimes it’s the time of year when we feel the most isolated and alone.
