Christmas Eve - Lighting The Christ Candle
Chris Goldman - Lead Pastor

We wish you a Merry Christmas and encourage you to join us for worship on Saturday Evening at 4:30 PM. This particular Christmas Eve service will also be our only in-person worship offering this weekend. Unlike last year when restrictions limited our size and required an open-air meeting space…this year will have us back in the worship center for a full hour of praise, communion, and lighting of the Advent Christ candle. We will close with our traditional candle-lighting ceremony as we sing “Silent Night.”

Remember, on Christmas morning, we invite you to go online to stream a special Christmas devotional featuring music, a message, and communion thought (about 20 minutes). The Community Life Center will be closed for Christmas Day. 

As you end 2022 with celebrations and reflections, we want to thank you for being part of the Northwest tapestry of faith. This church has made a difference in 2022, and we look forward with hope to 2023. May God bless us with a healthier year, a stronger year, and a year of serving those around us. 

Grace and Peace ~ Chris Goldman

Christmas Eve service will begin at 4:30 pm and conclude at 5:30 with candle lighting as we sing Silent Night. The service will be held in the worship center, but the candle lighting will take place in the lobby (hopefully, with snow falling outside). We schedule this service to allow you plenty of time for family traditions you may have.  (Thus, no pre-service refreshments on Saturday.)

Christmas Morning, you are invited to enjoy an ONLINE WORSHIP TIME of about 20 minutes especially designed for Christmas Day. This is done to allow your family to enjoy service at any time. THE COMMUNITY LIFE CENTER WILL BE CLOSED ON CHRISTMAS DAY, and the Church office will be closed the following week. 

This Sunday morning and New Year's Eve will be the last services to give in person in 2022.  Please help us end the year well.  According to IRS rules to be considered a 2022 gift: 

1) Received at the office by December 31.
2) Mailed contributions must be postmarked by December 31st.
3) Online donations must be completed by 11:59 pm on December 31st.
