Pastoral Christmas Greeting and Christmas Eve Invitation

Tomorrow night we will sing with joy and reflect with care how God has leaned over the messed up playpen of our world to speak to us through an infant child.  It might seem strange to make such a fuss about a babe born in Bethlehem, surrounded by toothless shepherds and wise old men from back East reduced to babbling fools.  This child wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger is trying to tell us in the simplest way how much God loves us.

I invite you to join us for Christmas Eve worship to hear the simple message of God’s infinite and unconditional love.  Come ready to receive heaven’s gift.  Each one of us will need to humble ourselves to hear God speaks in baby talk, saying “cootchie, cootchie, coo.”  Baby talk is the language of love.   It can’t be ignored or misunderstood.  God comes to us as a child to insure we hear God’s love us, right where we are on this night and beyond.

Three services are scheduled:

Family Friendly Christmas Eve Service

5:00 p.m., Main Sanctuary-All children present will help us re-enact the Christmas story.  The service will culminate with communion and candlelight.

 Traditional Christmas Eve Service

6:30 p.m., Main Sanctuary-A timeless service full of carols of the season, inspiring message of God’s infinite and unconditional love.  The service will culminate with communion and candlelight.

 Blended Christmas Eve Service

11:00 p.m., Historical Chapel-A blended service with songs of the season mixed with praise to Christ the newborn king, along with an inspiring message of God’s infinite and unconditional love.  The service will culminate with communion and candlelight.
