//Christmas Eve Service: December 24

This year our Christmas Eve service will be on Sunday night, December 24, at 11:30 PM in the Worship Center. At this service we will tell straight from the scripture the story of Christ’s birth, and sing a variety of Christmas Carols. The service will end at 12:00 AM with a time of communion. This will be a great way to start your Christmas Day. Come and join us!

It’s that time of year again! Time to dust off the boxes of decorations, hang the sparkling lights, throw a yule log on the fire, put up the tree and break out the ugly Christmas sweater for the office Christmas party! In the middle of the celebration of Christmas, the parties, the presents, the cookies and punch, there is a story of hope that changed the world. A story of a God who was willing to get down into the ugly areas of this life. A story of a King that stepped off his throne and stepped knee deep into the muck of this world. A story of a Savior that cleans up the mess we make out of our life. A story of a Messiah that removes our ugly rags and gives us a new set of clothes, clothes fit for party with a king. Join us each Sunday leading up to Christmas as we celebrate the amazing story of the birth of Jesus and how He can take our Ugly Christmas and make it beautiful again.
