It’s hard to imagine Christmas is upon us. Yet, here we are, two days away. For many of us, it’s been a lot of hustle and bustle, and not a lot of rest. But, this is the time that we should be resting…and reflecting. We know Christmas isn’t about all the commercialism, but it’s so easy to get wrapped up (literally) in the gifts, shopping and decorations. As a visiting priest suggested to St. Luke’s recently, this time of year is our pop-up “reminder” – on the busy smartphones of our lives – of God’s unending love for us delivered through His son, Jesus Christ.
We invite you to join us on Christmas Eve for a joyful celebration of the birth of our redeemer. The evening begins with a brief music program at 4:30PM, featuring guest instrumentalists and vocalists, and our very own Praise Ensemble. The worship service begins at 5:00PM. So, don’t ignore this pop-up! Please join us for this evening of song and praise as we remember the true reason for Christmas.
