Christmas Day from Home
Merry Christmas! There will be NO in-person worship this morning so that families can keep their usual Christmas morning routines and traditions. We have crafted a video presentation that will serve as our worship service in a sort of "Christmas Special" format. Please join us on Facebook and YouTube from the comfort of your home. The service will “go live” at 11:00AM so that all may view it in real time, and then it will be available to watch any time after that.
Christmas Eve Service
Join us at 8:00PM for a candlelight and communion service, celebrating the incarnation of Jesus—God-Enfleshed Among Us!
