Christmas Sermon Series: "Christmas Time in the City"
Starting on November 27th, make plans to join us in worship for our new sermon series, "Christmas Time in the City." Each week, we'll come to worship to examine the lives of those that Jesus' birth impacted the most in the city of Bethlehem and how that birth continues to impact us today. In addition to this exciting sermon series, we'll have elements of the Christmas season sprinkled throughout all that we do in worship. From the decorations, songs, children's messages, and advent readings, this is a special time to gather in worship to praise God for the gift of Jesus!

December 24th at 5:30 p.m. in the sanctuary our Christmas Eve Service will include special music, communion, a time for children, and candle lighting. There will also be a special offering that will go towards supporting Christian Life Home.
