Christmas Isn't Cancelled!


We love the traditions that come with Christmas. That’s why we do them every year. They draw us closer to each other and fix our eyes on Jesus.

But this year we have to figure out how to do the holidays with coronavirus on the guest list. That includes our church adjusting our traditions to make it safer for our church family.

Many people have health concerns that make COVID-19 more dangerous to them, and many are related to someone they want to protect. We get that and totally understand and support your decisions. We also know that state restrictions could possibly get crazier.
Unfortunately, many of our church’s holiday traditions are too crowded to work this year. We know that many of you will feel disappointed that the yearly tradition you enjoy is cancelled.

However, there are still a couple of opportunities that we feel we can do safely.

Monday, December 21st, Tuesday, December 22nd, and Wednesday, December 23rd, 6-8 p.m.: Live Nativity!

Stop by the front driveway of the church to experience the old-fashioned tradition of an outdoor Nativity scene with shepherds, wise men and Mary and Joseph portrayed by members of the congregation. It is a gift to the community, so invite your friends and neighbors to come by and visit! We still need “cast members” to participate each evening. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Susan Nicholson.

Thursday, December 24th , 7 p.m.: Christmas Eve Candlelight Worship Service

Come and celebrate the birth of Jesus with us on Christmas Eve at 7 p.m.! Worship with scripture readings and traditional carols, a devotional message and candles lit to proclaim the birth of our Savior. Invite your family and friends to join you at this beautiful family service to welcome in Christmas!

(We will be continuing to adjust to pandemic protocols and the church will be prepared appropriately. During the service, we will practice social distancing and strongly request that everyone wear a face covering.)

No matter what happens with the coronavirus, what will not be lost is the message of Advent and the telling of the Christmas Story as long as we keep Christ in our celebrations!
