Have you ever felt like everyone around you can’t wait for Christmas, but you’re more excited for the 26th, when it’s all over? It’s supposed to be a happy time, but when you think of Christmas, it’s actually a little frightening! Our minds go straight to things like: what if that person shows up, what if they ask that question, what if they don’t like my gift, what if I didn’t spend enough money, or what if my child misbehaves?
If that sounds like you, and you feel like Christmas is more scary and stressful than merry and bright, you’re not alone. There are lots of people in the Bible who felt the very same way in the days leading up to the first Christmas.
If you want to hear more about how the people who were a part of that first Nativity Scene dealt with their fears, we want to invite you to join us for Christmas Eve this year. Locations and service times are listed below. We hope to see you there!

What about my kids?
Your kids will have a blast! You can rest easy knowing that we use a secure check-in system and all of our volunteers are background checked. We split the kids into age-specific classrooms including Babies, Walkers, 3-5 year olds, and K-5th graders.
