Christmas Day Service

December 25 at 11:00 AM // Celebration Center

This year, Christmas Day falls on a Sunday, so we will offer a combined worship service on December 25 at 11:00 a.m. in the Celebration Center. This will be the only worship service offered that morning. It will be a mixture of people of all ages – from babies to the elderly! It will be great to come together and celebrate with joy the fact that God, in the form of Jesus, came into this world as a human being some 2,000 years ago… and that Jesus is at the very center of our faith today, too! Come and sing some wonderful Christmas carols with us! The service will feature a brief Christmas homily from Rev. Tim Travers. There will even be a special “blessing of the toys.” Therefore, if you have kids or grandkids, have them bring a favorite toy or gift they’ve received as part of their Christmas experience. Even as adults, we give and receive some very meaningful gifts. We will bless these special gifts in a way that will speak to people of any age. Merry Christmas!
