Hope, Joy and Peace are Closer than You Think!
This season does not have to be so hectic or frantic. Christmas provides a holy time to slow down, to reflect on your life, and prepare for the coming of the Savior of the world. We offer some sparkling musical events to help you make room in your heart for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

• The 5 PM service is for all ages. We sing beloved Christmas carols and hear the Christmas story read by children and youth. This year we have a special musical event. Master guitarist Brian Holt has composed a Christmas Suite for guitar orchestra and it will premier at our service.
