Virtual Children’s Christmas Eve Candlelight Service
Due to COVID restrictions and concerns for our children, our Christmas Eve service will look differently than in years past. The day school children will record their Christmas messages to the congregation earlier in the month and these recordings will be shown in the Christmas Eve worship services. The service will close with the dimming of the lights and worshipping by candlelight. Please invite your friends to join us for our Christmas worship services – what better time to share our hope in Christ than at Christmas?
