Most Unlikely Thing
Micah 5:2-5a
Your entire family is invited to join us for our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service THIS Monday, December 24th, at 6:30 PM in our Worship Center. This service is a favorite of many and includes traditional Christmas carols, scripture reading, a Children's Message from Pastor Aimee, the Lord's Supper, and Pastor Glen will conclude his "Advent-ually" Message Series.

We will also collect a special Love Offering after this service for our Benevolence Fund that directly helps needy individuals in our community.

Families with Children - Please Note: There will be no childcare for this service as we invite your entire family to join us and allow our Children's Ministry Volunteers the opportunity to attend.
