"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6
It's that time of year when stores are packed with shoppers buying Christmas gifts for everyone on their lists. This annual tradition of giving and receiving gifts dates back to the first Christmas, when the wise men presented Jesus with frankincense, gold and myrrh. But the true gift on that first Christmas was the birth of Christ Himself. Join us this Christmas Eve to hear a message on the encounter between the wise men and Jesus. Find out why this timeless encounter is more valuable than any other gift in the world.

Tomoka will celebrate the birth of Jesus with an adjusted service schedule. See the details for each campus below.

Serving Opportunities
As one of the most well-attended services at Tomoka, we’re welcoming “all hands on deck” to help create a welcoming atmosphere. Please consider serving during one of our Christmas Eve services. Your Christmas Eve volunteer options include welcoming visitors in our lobby, helping to park cars, or distributing the communion trays and offering buckets. If you would like to help out during a Christmas Eve service, sign up below.

At the Ormond Campus, another way you can help is by joining the Christmas Eve Worship Choir. High school students and adults who enjoy singing and can carry a tune are welcome to sign up. Students in middle school are invited, too, along with a parent. Choir members must be present at all services to help lead worship. There are also three mandatory rehearsals from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on December 12, 19, and 22. Sign up below.
