Christmas 2016 – Home is Here

Christmas 2016 – Home is Here

Snow, and mistletoe, and presents under a tree. Well-behaved children — and adults — gathered around the fire. The perfect gift; the perfect response. Visions of sugar plums, and…wait. Whose Christmas is this?!

Each December we log miles on the highway and points on our credit cards hoping to connect people, places, and longings. As we wrap our gifts and watch for snow, we can’t ignore the tension in our world and our relationships. We’re looking harder than ever for home.

But what if this Christmas, you didn’t have to search and shop and travel for that elusive holiday feeling? What if home was already, and always, here?

Whatever home and — church — have been to you this year, you are warmly invited to join us this Christmas season at Christ’s Church.


December 4: When Home is Messy
December 11: When Home is Far
December 18 (Monologue Sunday)*: When Home Finds You
December 25 : When Home is Good

If you miss any of these Advent Sundays you can listen to recordings of the messages on Sermon~cast.

*On Monologue Sunday we take a break from our regular Sunday preaching to hear the Christmas story told dramatically, from the perspective of a historical, biblical character. Combined with Christmas carols and special music, the monologue is a great opportunity to invite friends to experience church in a new way. Who will this year’s character be? Join us December 18 and find out!


Saturday, December 24th – 5pm

Please join us for our special Christmas Eve 2016 service. We’ll sing some Christmas hymns by candlelight, retell the story of Jesus’ birth, and hear a short message from the scriptures. As always, please feel free to invite your friends, family and neighbors to come hear the good news of God’s love revealed through Jesus’ coming to earth.
