Greetings and peace from our Lord Jesus Christ! Thank you for being with us at INSERT NAME OF CHURCH HERE as we celebrate the birth of our Savior on this holiest of nights. Whether you are a long-time member of our congregation or whether you are a newcomer to our church family, we appreciate that you have incorporated this worship service into your own personal Christmas Eve tradition this year.
What an exciting Season this is! I don’t know about you, but this tends to be my favorite time of the year as so many take time to celebrate and appreciate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Thank you for joining us! Today marks the first Sunday in this time of the Church year that we call Advent. Although we celebrate this season each year, many are not sure what the season is all about. The word “Advent” simply means “arrival.” It is the manifestation of something long-awaited. It is a time that we reflect on Israel’s promised savior and remember his birth, as well as anticipate his return. It is a time of joyous remembrance and eager anticipation.

Welcome! Today is the second Sunday in the Advent season. Can you think of some of the Biblical themes of this season? Certainly, the love and faithfulness of God our Father is high up there, but have you ever considered the idea of hope? Although it may not be the first thing that comes to mind during the Christmas season, there is much to consider. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view and/or copy full text!
Welcome! Can you believe we it is already the third week of Advent? With Christmas approaching, we can often get caught up in the business and stress that comes with the holiday season. With so much going on around us, it is important that we remain focused on the real meaning of Christmas. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view and/or copy full text!
Welcome! We are inching ever closer to Christmas day, the day that we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, the light of the world. We are coming to that realization that God is in our midst. As the prophet says:
The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a mighty Savior; He will rejoice over you with gladness, and renew you in His love, He will sing joyfully because of you, as one sings at festivals.
