Please note special times for each of these services which replaces our usual worship service times.
December 18 - 10am - LOVE - Luke 2:1-20, Matthew 2:1-11 - Nativity Creche. This is “bring a kid” Sunday. We will put them in costumes so they can recreate a living nativity creche as we read the Christmas story. Pictures allowed and encouraged.
December 18 - 7pm - Our annual "Blue Christmas" service, especially for those who are hurting this holiday season. Sometimes we are in need of
peace and support,
not joy and merriment.

December 24 - 8pm - Join us on that Silent Night for our annual Christmas Ever Candelight service, with lots of music, candles, and the Christmas story. We'll sing many of the old favorite hymns, as Pastor Ron supplies some of the hymns' history. Then we'll light our individual candles, and sing the Silent Night hymn, in solemn celebration. Emmanuel!
