Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

Dec. 24, 2023: “Being Present with Light”

It is time we celebrate the opening of the most precious gift of presence we know – the birth of the Christ Child, the Light of the World.As we light our candles, we open our hearts to becoming part of the gift of light in the world. Like the choice the shepherds face, will we live in the shadows of fears, or will we dare to run to the manger to know and believe the Good News of new possibilities for all who need it most?

This is part of our Advent/Christmas series, “The Gift of Being Present.” Worship opened with “Advent Christ – Skit Guys.” Pastor Mary’s Christmas Eve message is based on Isaiah 9: 2-7 and Luke 2: 1-20.

The 10:00 am and 5:00 pm worship services are available in their entirety on YouTube.
