Holiday Message

Invitation to Christmas Service – Peace on Earth


Warm Greetings!


I wanted to take this opportunity to invite you and your family to our Christmas Eve service on Saturday, December 24, 2016, at 5 p.m. and our Christmas Day service on Sunday, December 25, 2016, at 10 a.m.


We are looking forward to a wonderful time of celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!


This world seems to have the mentality lately that the best way to have “peace on earth” is to somehow move away from the Prince of Peace.  That doesn’t bring peace, but more chaos and separation from God. 


This Christmas eve we will join together for a special program of “Lessons and Carols” and hear the message of Peace on Earth as we welcome the Christ child into our lives.  This family service is a time to join ourselves and our hearts together to celebrate with friends and family.  We will come together again on Christmas morning to welcome the Infant Jesus with more caroling and a time to reflect on the true gift of Christmas.


I look forward to seeing you there and may God bless you and your family during this Advent season.


Peace to you,


Pastor Donna
