Christmas

Advent is here, and Christmas Eve is only a few weeks away!

Take a look at the December schedule, and join us as we experience the joy of Christmas.

Advent Sermon Series

Sunday Mornings: November 28-December 26

What is joy? And what does it look like to have joy this Christmas season? We find true joy when we see that we are in God’s presence. How do we do that? By looking to His Word, His people, the places He puts us in, and how He fulfills His promises. Through the season of Advent, we'll keep our focus on the true joy found in the ultimate expression of God’s presence: Jesus Christ, Immanuel, God with us.

Blue Christmas
