Two thousand years ago God’s people were waiting.

Watching. Hoping. Wondering — where was he?

Hadn’t he promised to be with them?

Hadn’t he promised to send them a savior, a rescuer?

It seemed like God wasn’t where he was supposed to be.

The heavens seemed silent. Maybe no one was coming after all.

But in Bethlehem, in a manger, a baby’s cries announced the incredible,

the unimaginable: God himself had come.





Come experience

one of our Christmas services!



 Celebrate the birth of Jesus

with music,

a message, and fun.



Help us remember the night two thousand years ago

   When the light of God came into our world.

How Seat Reservations Work

We don’t actually sell or take tickets. We ask that you reserve your seats so that we can save room in each service for the many guests that will join us for Christmas Eve this year! When one service gets full, then reservations will close for that service. We look forward to worshiping God and celebrating the birth of Jesus, our Savior, this Christmas with you!

Invite Friends and Family!

We’ve come up with some graphics that will help you invite people to Christmas service with you.
