Because everyone is so busy this time of year and we like to plan ahead:

Christmas Eve Service:  12-24  at 6:00 PM

Christmas Day - Sunday Information below

Preschool, children & youth will NOT meet for Sunday School (Bible Study) on  Christmas morning. 

This will allow teachers to focus on family rather than class preparation during the days leading up to Christmas.

The later start (10:30)  should allow for church families and children’s workers to observe their family traditions and then still be able to attend morning worship at the regular 10:30 time.

Adult classes may meet if they choose to do so.

Child care will NOT be available until 10:15 on Christmas morning.

There will be no afternoon or evening activities on Christmas day.
