Merry Christmas!

Dear Blessed Saints,

As the Eve of Christmas is upon us, I invite you to join us in worship tonight at 5 and 8 as we rejoice and celebrate the glorious good news the angel announced to the shepherds in the fields, keeping watch over their flock, that first Christmas Eve.

“Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.” – Luke 2:10-12 (NRSV)

If you are travelling or unable to attend know that you will be missed and we pray the light of the Christ child shine upon you and fill you with Christmas joy!

Merry Christmas good and faithful people of God! Thank you for all you do in the name of Jesus Christ!

Pastor Chad
