Upcoming Events   


Christmas Day - Tuesday, December 25 - 
The blessings of Christ’s coming are so great that they can hardly be contained in a single service. Each of the three Christmas services is different. Each has a unique epistle, seasonal prayer, and gospel reading. Many find the special grace of the season by attending all three Acts of Consecration on Christmas Day, a threefold blessing for their own future and for the life of the earth.
12 a.m. Midnight
8:30 a.m. Dawn
10:30 a.m. Day
11:45 a.m. Christmas Service for Children after the Act of Consecration.
The Christmas story is retold from the altar, as it lives now. The words of this special service are spoken only once a year, bringing the children blessings for the entire year to come.
Brunch provided between 9:30 and 10 a.m.

Holy Nights - Wednesday, December 26 - Saturday, January 5
