This year, instead of gathering in person for Christmas Eve services, we invite you to participate in an online Christmas Eve service. This family friendly service will have readings, worship, and lots of Christmas cheer! We also have a special element this year—O Come Emmanuel—a 30-minute guided prayer experience created to draw our church into the same anticipation of the Messiah that has marked God’s people for all creation.

Advent is a season of celebration in which we get to look back on Jesus’ first arrival and expectantly await his second arrival. Beginning the fourth Sunday before Christmas and continuing through Christmas day, Advent holds many traditions that provide us with the opportunity to slow down and reflect on Jesus’ birth, his redemptive sacrifice, and the promise of ultimate restoration. We hope you will take advantage of several resources we have gathered to help you embrace the Advent season.
One defining characteristic of a local church is how well its members care for one another. Loving God and loving others are intricately linked throughout Scripture and help connect our church family with the very reason Christ came into our world.
We all know that 2020 has been unlike any year in our lifetime. Over the course of this year, our Benevolence and Care Fund has helped individuals with medical bills, moving expenses, vehicle repair, utility bills, and hundreds of hours of counseling resources. This fund was supplied by our annual Christmas Eve offering, and this year, was graciously expanded in March with our COVID-19 Relief Fund. We are also very happy to report that this week, 73 families in our church received Christmas assistance.
Even though our Christmas Eve services will be online this year, we still wanted to give you the opportunity to participate in our Benevolence and Care offering. If you would like to give above your normal offering, you can select the Benevolence and Care Fund when you give online December 20-24. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Galatians 6:9-10 – “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. 10 Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.”
