Christmas Lights Series Logo

Christmas Lights Series

The Christmas season is full of life and lights. Trees are trimmed and homes are illuminated all around the neighborhood. Families gather together for celebrations and meals together; it’s truly such a special time of the year. During this season of joy, we want to celebrate all the sights and sounds of the season with you and your family! 

Join us each Sunday leading up to Christmas as we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the light of the world, and the hope that He brings to each one of us this year. We’ll focus on the light of Jesus and how we can share that light with others this Christmas season.

Christmas Lights is our (adult age) three-week message series led by Lead Pastor, Allen Jessee. Children, middle + high school students will have their own Christmas gatherings.
