Christmas Message Series

Good news seems hard to come by these days. We're constantly bombarded with news of strife and struggle that can steal our joy. Is there anything worth celebrating this Christmas season? Is peace even possible?

In a time of fear and unknown circumstances, there came a message of good news that was for all people. Jesus? entrance to earth was an announcement worthy of a heavenly choir, and we have the opportunity to celebrate this reality in our current world as well.

Join us for a three-week series (December 4, 11 + 18) called Good News. Great Joy. Present Peace. We'll share a series of Christmas messages (for adult ages) that will bring focus to the chaos of the season and offer a reason to celebrate now and throughout the year.

We'll be gathering in person on Christmas Day, Sunday, December 25 at 11am as well as New Year's Day, Sunday, January 1 at 11am.

Candlelight Gatherings

There were hundreds of years of darkness and silence before Jesus came to earth. There wasn't a giant explosion of power when He appeared. He came as a newborn child. This one small spark of light took place to illuminate the world - for us to experience Him through hope, joy, love and peace!

Come join us Friday, December 23 for a special night celebrating the light of the world! We'll pass out candles, sing Christmas carols and hear a Christmas message. This event is family-friendly. Childcare will be provided for six-weeks – five years old. We're excited for the opportunity to spend this special night with YOU!
