First Service of Christmas
Our first Christmas worship service will be at 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 24. Celebrate with us this great and marvelous mystery of the birth of God among us, Immanuel, God with us! At this service our children will be the messengers of the glorious truth that God sent His Son into the world to be our Savior.
Join us at 10:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve as we lift our voices in song, even as the angels did on that first Christmas night, as they sang of our Savior’s birth.
Second Service of Christmas
On this solemn night in the life of the Church, we gather at 11 p.m. on Christmas Eve to worship the Lord of lords and King of kings, who left His heavenly throne to become one of us that we might be covered with His righteousness and thus be reconciled to God.
Christmas Day Service
Rejoice with us at 9:00 a.m. on Christmas Day as we hear the message, “To you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, whio is Christ the Lord.”
