Children and Youth Upcoming Activities

Christmas Program Practice 2018

Today, Christmas can mean a lot of different things: the North Pole, family traditions, candy canes, and presents, just to name a few. However, it all falls short when compared to the true miracle that happened in Bethlehem so many years ago.


The children’s Christmas program, “Christmas Is Jesus” features songs and narration that shares the message that at its core, Christmas is quite simply…Jesus.


This unique and entertaining program is set to take place during the worship service on Sunday, December 16th. The fun medleys, mostly all familiar Christmas carols, and touching moments come together to help teach kids why we celebrate Christmas and what this means for our lives.


So, plan now to attend this delightful program that will offer a compelling message, bringing the biblical story of Christ’s birth to the hearts of all in attendance.
