Christmas 2021

"LOVED"

There’s no season quite like Christmas for bringing out all of our emotions. And there’s no emotion so closely linked to Christmas as love. Our holiday songs and stories, movies and traditions all repeat the same chorus: Christmas means love. 

But what kind of love does it mean? 

What if shepherds and wise men and a new little family were all changed not by the love they gave but by what they received: a love that made them brave, known, and free—not only on Christmas, but for the rest of their lives?

This December, join us from home or in person for an experience of faith, hope, and Christmas’ greatest gift: love.

Blue Christmas

While the Christmas season is a time of joy and hope, we know that for many, the holidays can also be a time that brings up pain, hurt or stress.  For those struggling in these areas, the Christmas season can be lonely or overwhelming. 

Blue Christmas is a non-traditional service that acknowledges the pain, and offers hope to those who are grieving the loss of a loved one, or hurting during the holiday season. 

All are welcome and encouraged to bring friends or family members that may be going through difficult times.  Stephen Ministers will be available for individual prayer following the service. Please join us.
