Christmas Day Service

Saturday, December 25

10:00am - 11:00am

 Love, Joy, Peace, Hope, and Light are the Advent themes. Today in the service we will reflect on how each of these concepts can transform our world by breaking down the walls, literally and metaphorically. 

The Zoom link will be available in the Weekly Connections and on the Calendar. It will be the regular Sunday Service link.

Please join us after the service for a Christmas Potluck Brunch! Bring your holiday leftovers to share, pick something up at the store to share, or bring something you made at home. Let’s celebrate the holiday together on Christmas morning. Feel free to wear your Christmas morning PJs to church too!
