Christmas Eve 2017

Worship Information

Christmas is a time to gather with family and friends. We invite you to be a part of our family, no matter your background, as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. Please join us at one of our six Christmas Eve services. Together we’ll experience beautiful music, carols by candlelight, and a Christmas message that reminds us of that night thousands of years ago that continues to transform our world and our lives today.

The Message

3pm Family Service: The Christmas story presented in a dramatic fashion, led by our children, with traditional Christmas carols, Bible readings, and a short sermon message. 

Traditional Worship services and Open Door Alternative Worship: The Christmas season can be complicated. There are presents to pick, parking spots to find, and family dynamics to navigate. The story of Christmas—God’s most important message to humanity—shouldn’t be complicated. Join us as we unpack the bottom line of Christmas. And it’s a bottom line that is truly “good news.”
