"Peace Has Come" Christmas Cantata
Sunday, December 4 | 10:30 am in the Sanctuary
The Chancel Choir will be presenting “Peace Has Come” by Mary McDonald during the 10:30 worship service. Mary and Joseph were initially troubled, but eventually found peace. Shepherds on a hillside were trembling with fear, but were told to "fear not." In Peace Has Come, we follow the journey of those who experienced that first Christmas night . . . and found peace in a new and fresh way. In the process, the listener is challenged to lay aside those illusions that promise peace, and embrace the Giver of true peace and abundant life. 


"We Three Spies" Children's Musical
Sunday, December 17 | 10:30 am in the Sanctuary
Sshh! Grab your dark shades and go undercover to join the exciting Christmas mission of We Three Spies. Agents E, L and F are recruits with the CIK (Christmas Intelligence Kids), a covert group of spies who secretly bring Christmas cheer to the needy. But this year they’re facing an especially difficult challenge: keeping a Scrooge-like landlord from evicting them from their headquarters, confiscating donations, and cancelling their Christmas Nativity program. It takes a little expert espionage and a lot of God’s unconditional love for the landlord to change her tune as she finally joins the CIK and the entire town in a musical celebration of the true meaning of Jesus’ birth.


Family Christmas Caroling
Sunday, December 17 | Time TBD in the Church Parking Lot
We would like to invite our church family to join us as we spread holiday cheer throughout the neighborhood. Everyone is invited. Meet us in the parking lot!



Come experience the warmth of community and keep the birth of Jesus central to this year's Christmas celebrations. Prepare your hearts for the celebration of our Savior’s birth by joining us at one of our Christmas Eve services.
