Our online worship can begin whenever you and your family would like to experience worship. It will be available by 11:00 a.m. on Christmas Eve. Grab a candle to recall the light of Christ - YOUR ADVENT WREATH if you are able - something that you can use for communion, and your offering, so that you are ready to worship God. If you have a taper candle to use for the end of worship, we would love to share the light with you!
Send us an email and let us know you joined us! See you at 10:30!
