Christmas Cantata 

Sunday, December 9th 9:30 & 11:00 am Services
Christmas is a season of joyous sounds!  Join us for our Chancel Choir's Christmas Cantata, Night of the Father's Love.  All of the mystery, the awe and palpable excitement of that night are imaginatively captured in a Christmas mosaic that combines fragments of the familiar with a unique perspective in word and music.


Night in Bethlehem

Saturday, December 15th 5:00 - 7:30 pm
Take a walk through old Bethlehem. Enjoy our live nativity, petting zoo, hands-on shops including  pottery, bakery and painting. This is a spectacular ‘you-are-there’ Bible adventure.  
It’s a Christmas experience where you do more than just hear about the birth of Jesus - you see, touch, feel, and smell what life was like during this miraculous time. It gives you a chance to slow down during this hectic season and be reminded why we celebrate!
