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!

NOTE: When our services have reached capacity, registration will automatically close. However, you can still worship with us online!

Nativity Animals

We are still ironing out the details for this year’s Nativity Animals. We are working on having camels, llamas, donkeys and other animals 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.

As soon as we have confirmed the details for the Nativity Animals, we will announce the details here. 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.

The Christmas Experience

On Sunday, November 21 at 4:00 PM the Kids Ministry will host The Christmas Experience in the Family Life Center. This fun, interactive event is designed to give your family a chance to catch your breath and reclaim the warmth and peace of Christmas. The Christmas Experience is made up of five separate activities or stations — the Carpentry Shop, Bethlehem Bakery, Pottery Shed, Painter’s Hut and The Stable.

The purpose of ‘The Gift‘ is to give parents a chance to teach kids about hard work, perseverance and (most importantly) why the manger is so important to our faith. Also included in this kit will be a list of possible Christmas activities, service opportunities and devotionals.

Registration is $20/family. This covers the cost of building materials for the manger. If you can’t make it to church on November 21, you can still purchase the kit and work on the manger at home. The cost for purchasing the kit to take home is $20. NOTE: If your family built a manger last year and plan to reuse it (and bypass the Carpentry Shop), registration is $10/family.

This is a 100% hands-on activity where every member of the family gets to play a part. If you will be building a manger at the event, please do bring a hammer. Because this is a self-guided activity, so feel free to come anytime between 4:00 and 6:00 PM and work at your own pace. On average, manger assembly takes between 35 and 60 minutes.

The Christmas Experience is a community event, so definitely invite your neighbors, co-workers or your children’s friends to come with you!

So that we know how many people to expect, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.

This event is free to attend, but registration is required.

NOTE: Registration ends on Tuesday, December 7. Sorry, late registrations will not be accepted. (We need to know how many to expect due to food prep, etc.)

Kids Christmas Program

It’s Christmas Eve at the Carter home and everyone is excited about the Christmas parade. However, the Carter kids begin to lose sight of the true reason we celebrate Christmas. Join this adventure as the characters learn about the importance of following Jesus and celebration his gift of life above everything else!

Join us on Sunday, December 12 from 6:00 to 7:00 PM as our elementary-age kids perform the musical, “The Christmas Dream Team Parade: An Almost Cancelled Christmas!”

This event is free!

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.
