It all comes down to this … all the shopping, baking, wrapping, decorating, parties, and retail frenzy is all about celebrating ONE THING … the birth of Jesus Christ!!  We go through all this because we LOVE the people in our lives and we want Christmas to be special, but we LOVE because HE first loved us! So join us for this special COMMUNITY Candlelight Service to worship the newborn King!

ANTICIPATE CHRISTMAS!
Sundays in December, 10:50 AM

Today children are told the story of Santa Claus and his flying reindeer multiple times during the holidays as their expectations for Santa arriving builds and builds! But imagine what it must have been like hundreds of years ago when every mother’s child was told a story that carried as much (if not more) anticipation! Instead of  Twas the Night Before Christmas, parents would sit their children down around the fire and read to them from the Book of Isaiah: “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”    Isaiah 9:6-7    Come share in the excitement and JOY of the holiday season as we prepare, together, for Christmas!

ADVENT: A Season of Preparation
Sundays in December, 10:50 AM
Advent, the 4 weeks prior to Christmas, focuses on the preparation to celebrate the birth of Jesus the Christ in his First Advent, but it also anticipates the return of Christ the King in his Second Advent. Advent is far more than simply marking a 2,000 year old event in history… it is celebrating a truth about God, the revelation of God in Christ whereby all of creation might be reconciled to God! Advent also symbolizes the spiritual journey of individuals and a congregation, as they affirm that Christ has come, that He is present in the world today, and that He will come again in power.
