December 15 & 16 starting at 7:00 p.m.
As Christians, we should view Christmas and Easter as if they are bound together, for we cannot observe one without thinking about the other. This musical is a reminder that—because of the birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension of the perfect Lamb of God—everyone can thankfully, joyfully, and obediently celebrate His love and grace all year long. Join us for light refreshments afterwards in the foyer.
Members, please stop by the Information Center to pick up a letter from the Nominating Committee regarding your recommendations for new Elders and the next Nominating Committee.

This Sunday we'll learn about when Joseph’s brothers turned against him and tried to kill him, but God protected Joseph and used him as part of His plan to rescue his family. In a similar way, people turned against God’s Son, Jesus. Jesus’ death was God’s plan to rescue sinners.
