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.
Children's Christmas Pageant
This year on December 11 at 5:15 PM we will have our fourth 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.
Christmas Caroling on the Evening of December 18
On Sunday, December 18, at 5:00 PM we will meet at the church and go out in groups into the surrounding neighborhoods to sing Christmas carols, bring Christmas cheer, and invite our neighbors to worship with us. It is always a joyous time of fellowship and outreach - something we have not been able to do in the last two years because of COVID. After caroling, we will have food and fellowship at the church.
Join us for Scripture and Carols on Thursday, December 24th at 6:00 PM.
The service is 35-45 minutes long. No childcare is provided, but all children are welcome in the service. We will sing traditional Christmas carols and have a series of Scripture lessons from the prophet Isaiah and the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. We will end with a candlelight singing of "Silent Night."
Worship with us on Sunday morning, December 25, at 10:00 AM
What better way to celebrate His birth than by worshiping Him as He has commanded in His Word? (Hebrews 10:25; Acts 20:7) This year Christmas falls on the Lord's Day. We will gather as a congregation in one service at 10:00 AM (please note the time change). So come and join us for morning worship!
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.
