The Advent sermon series will focus on a specific Christmas carol each week as we unpack the good news of God’s Messiah born unto us! Everyone is invited, you and/or your children to artistically create an expression of each song as we go through the series. A gallery of art will be displayed each week in the foyers and sanctuaries that expresses the heart of the song and its message. In addition to our local art, we will be featuring several pieces by artist Rudolph Bostic. Below is the schedule for the Songs of Christmas series. Please note that art submissions should be dropped off at your home campus church office.
– December 19: What Child is This?, due Dec.13
– December 24: Silent Night & December 26: We Three Kings, due Dec. 20

All submissions by children to be on 8.5×11 paper using their choice of “coloring tools.” Teenage and adult artists are welcome to submit larger works if they wish (easels for display are encouraged!).

Watch the Daily Devotionals for Songs of Christmas! Each day is a new song and many staff will be sharing their devotional online on Facebook and Youtube at Noon. Our hope is that you are inspired and blessed with a Christmas message and that you will share the post with your family and friends! Watch and listen.

Walk to the Manger 2021 will be live and in-person at both campuses Sunday, Dec. 12!

Experience Christmas with excitement and anticipation like the shepherds on a quiet dark night until an angel appeared with the announcement of the Savior’s birth! This Nativity musical is family friendly and please invite others to attend with you.
Infant and toddler care will be provided: OP 9:30 & 11AM, SKC: 9 & 11AM
Our tradition is to bring unwrapped gifts for children, infants to 17 years, to bless our friends at Freedom Fire and Mission Southside. Toys, games, electronics and other age appropriate gifts can be brought “to the manger” at the close of the musical.
Financial offerings will also be collected to benefit our local partner, The Urban Scholastic Center, and our international partner, ELAM Ministries. Please prayerfully gift what you can to either or both of these ministries. You may also give your offering in person on December 12.
