What is the best kind of news?

Good news that’s meant for you. God sent his Son into this world to right what we had wronged and fix what we had broken.

Jesus’ arrival was heralded to the world as good news meant for every man, woman, and child.

He had come as Savior: to live among us, to die in place of us, and to conquer death for us.

Together, we celebrate the good news of great joy proclaimed by the angels:

“A Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord!”

Worship will include favorite Christmas carols, Scripture readings, and an inspiring message of good news for you.

The service is family-friendly. Everyone is invited!
