Celebration Choir Christmas Musical

The Greatest Story Ever Told

Sunday, December 17th, 11:00 a.m. - Sanctuary Service

It is not a fairytale, a myth, or a bedtime story. It is the true story of God's Son being born of a virgin, wrapped in swaddling clothes, and laid in a manger in Bethlehem. Come enjoy a musical presentation that honors the story of Christ's birth, life, death, and resurrection. Invite your family and friends!


Christmas Eve Carolsing & Baptism Service

Sunday Night, December 24th, 6:00 p.m. - Sanctuary

Come enjoy a time of worship and celebration as we witness the baptism of new believers, and spend time remembering the true meaning of Christmas: Jesus's birth, and God's sending of His only Son for us.
