Candlelight Christmas Eve Service (x2)
What’s better than our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service? How about two Christmas Eve Candlelight services? Due to overflow of the sanctuary, this year we are going to offer the same worship service at two different times, Tuesday, December 24 at 5 pm & 7 pm.
But what about cookies you ask? That depends on whether you prefer your cookies before or after worship! There will be a time for Cookie Fellowship from 6-7 pm in Fellowship Hall for both services.
Knowing that there should be some extra room in the pews, invite friends, neighbors and loved ones to this light-filled, inspirational service!
Jesus compares the Kingdom of God to a mustard seed in (Matthew 13, Mark 4, Luke 13) that grows quickly into a small tree. The parable illustrates the power of tiny ideas, beliefs and acts that grow into large and significant endeavors.
