Christmas Events 2016

Posted by Alan on November 10, 2016


'Tis the season to remember the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

We celebrate the Master's plan to save us from our wretchedness through His righteousness. Jesus' birth in that dirty stable was the beginning of His earthly ministry that would culminate in a horrifying death on a cross and stunning resurrection. Jesus coming back to life from the grave.

He beat death. He beat sin. He beat Satan. And He offers salvation to us as a free gift. A gift that we don't deserve. A gift of freedom from the power of sin. A gift of life everlasting with God. And that is why we celebrate Christmas.

We hope you will join us for our Christmas events. They are focused on spending time together, bringing joy to the community, and sharing the story of Christmas through songs and stories. 


Sunday, December 4  |  6:00 pm

An evening of worship through song. Hear and sing songs that remind us of different aspects of the Christmas story.


Christmas Caroling and Soup Supper

Friday, December 9  |  6:00 pm

Beginning at 6, we'll eat soup together. Feel free to join us anytime from 6 - 6:45.

At 6:45, we're loading up the bus and vans to go caroling. We're headed to the Derby Marketplace, nursing homes, and shut-ins to spread Christmas joy.

At 8, we'll head back to the church for hot chocolate and dessert. 

This is a wonderful time together and a merry way to start off the Christmas season. 

Kids and adults of all ages are welcome. Please bring soup or chili along with a dessert or "fixin's" (cheese, crackers, sour cream, etc.) enough to feed your family plus a few extras. Drinks and dinnerware will be provided.


Christmas Cantata, The Silence and the Sound

Sunday, December 18  |  6:00 pm
