Christmas Worship Service

This year we have committed to keeping Christmas differently this year, celebrating the
advent of God’s love enfleshed in the Christ child via digital means, and by encouraging and
equipping our members to celebrate Christ’s nativity in their homes both joyfully and safely. We
are committed to obeying Christ’s command to “love your neighbor” (Lk. 10:27) in and through
our worship practices, which means that we will not be gathering for in-person worship on
Christmas Eve.

Our Christmas Eve service will be done by The Simpson College choir as they will be doing “Nine Lessons and Carols.”

Christmas Families Wish List

Listed below is the “Christmas Families Wish List” that we are asking our church family to help fill. It has been a difficult year for many and it is our hope that we can alleviate some of the uncertainty and stress brought on by the holidays for these two families. If you would like to help, please choose an item(s) from the list below and let Greg know so he can mark it off the list.

We ask that you please have your gift wrapped and brought to the church by December 16.  Also, please include a note with who the gift is for and for which family.

We certainly appreciate all the help that we can get with this.
Thank you and Merry Christmas!!
