During the Christmas season Christmas-Star_small we remember the story of Mary and how an angel of the Lord appeared to tell her of the special child she was carrying. A child called Emmanuel, which means "God with us." Let the whole world rejoice!

On Christmas Eve, Christians all over the world gather for one of the high points of the year. Our messages on this special night will help you find peace as we have a spiritual awareness that God is with us. We will help uncover the real meaning of Advent as we explore the wonder of Christ’s birth and get ready to welcome Christ the newborn King. Invite someone you know to join us in CELEBRATING the birth of our Savior!

Christmas Eve Morning

Peace is wonderful but sometimes hard to achieve. Have you ever had one of those days where literally everything went wrong? Today it's rare to find people who are at peace … yet "peace" is one of the reasons we celebrate Christmas. Jesus came to give us peace. Join us on this Holiest Eve of the year as we celebrate the Prince of Peace!
