Sunday, December 18 | 9:00 & 10:30 am

This year’s worship will feature live art by Steve Thomason, which will visually tell the story of Christ, and our story with Christ. The music will once again be a powerful witness for the Christmas season, and Pastor Jeff will share a compelling message based on Luke 1 and the interaction with Mary and Elizabeth. All these amazing elements will come together to provide a memorable time for Advent. Make plans now to join us for this great day of worship.

Service of Remembrance

Everyone is invited to worship and thank God for our loved ones who have passed away and support one another as a community of faith. Coming together as a church to honor one another and our collective loss allows for God’s continued comfort and healing.
