Christmas

Advent Services: November 24, December 1, 8, 15 and 22. Join us each Sunday at 9:30AM for special Sunday services that bring this concept to life.  Jesus came to us as a baby born in a barn, not in a palace or a sterile hospital. This theme this Advent season reminds us of the sacrifice that Jesus made out of love for us to forgive us of our sins. This sermon series is a challenge to extend the forgiveness God has shown us to others.

 

Sunday, December 1 @ 11:30AM: Women's Ministry Christmas Luncheon and Decorating Party following Sunday service. Join the women of the church for a wonderful luncheon directly after church and then we will have a great time decorating the church for Christmas. If you like trimming the tree and decking the halls, please join us for a fun filled afternoon.

 

Children’s Christmas Pageant-December 15 @ 9:30AM-Come and watch as our delightful /children reenact the Christmas Story in their own moving (and sometimes comical) way.

 

Christmas Eve-4:00PM: A traditional Christmas Eve Candlelight Service. Wonderful music and inspiring readings. Experience the dark waiting of the world trapped in sin and suffering. And then, a light enters the world, the small light of the baby Jesus. Rejoice as His birth opens our way back to God and His heart. During the service, the children are invited to come up to the Giving Tree and take a special gift! Doors open at 3PM.. Please arrive early for seating.

 

Christmas Blessing: Every year at Messiah, we bless families who need some extra help during the Christmas season. On November 24th, there will be a list of needs in the foyer. Please be in prayer and ask the Lord how you might be able to help a family in need. This is a great way to share the precious love of Jesus with someone this Christmas season.

 

Bring family and friends to church during this Christmas season! People who do not normally attend church, will come to church during the Christmas season. We have a variety of services and gatherings during this season, so please make an intentional effort to invite people to come to church with you!

 

Parents of children: The children will be performing in the Christmas Pageant production. All of the practices will be during Sunday School in November and December. There is one other short practices for the production: December 8 from 11:30-12:30. On December 15, please have your child arrive at church at 9AM and report to the children’s ministry gathering spot in the Fellowship Hall.
