The time of the year is again upon us when the world begins to think about the amazing, wonderful grace of God in becoming man - the incarnation - when Jesus Christ was born. The birth of the Lord Jesus Christ is much more than a heart-warming story of a cute baby surrounded by animals, shepherds, and wise men. It is a central truth of the Bible story - how God became man in order to save us from our sins. As a result, the Christmas season provides opportunities to reach out to friends and neighbors with the gospel. Like everything else in 2020, Christmas celebrations will be different. But our Savior is the same, yesterday, today, and forever!
Children's Christmas Pageant
This year on December 13 at 5:30 PM we will have our second annual Christmas Pageant with the children of Christ Church displaying the birth narrative along with readings from Scripture. Like all of our services at this time, face-coverings and social distancing are required for the audience (although not for the children performing). We would love for you to join us and then stay for evening worship at 6:00 PM.
Worship with us on the Lord's Day morning, Sunday, December 20 at 8:30 AM and 11 AM
What better way to celebrate His birth than by worshiping Him as He has commanded in His Word? (Hebrews 10:25; Acts Acts 20:7) So come and join us for morning worship! We will look at the opening of the gospels of Matthew, Luke, and John in "The Savior of the Word."
Then join us for a service of Scripture and Carols on Thursday, December 24th at either 5:00 or 6:30 PM.
The service is 35-45 minutes long. No childcare is provided, but all children are welcome in the service. This year we have two services to allow us to sit socially distant. Face coverings are required and we will not have our traditional candlelight ending. We will end with singing "Silent Night" - and are working on a creative conclusion to the service. We request that you fill out a registration form so that we can manage seating.
At Christ Church, we want to welcome you to come and be encouraged by the gospel story. We want you to be comforted, challenged, and find contentment in the Lord Jesus Christ, born to set His people free, and from our fears and sins release us, as the wonderful carol goes:
Come, thou long-expected Jesus,
Born to set thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us;
Let us find our rest in thee.
Israel's strength and consolation,
Hope of all the earth thou art;
Dear Desire of ev'ry nation,
Joy of every longing heart.
