Christmas Eve Worship

Outdoor and Online Options

We have multiple opportunities for you to gather with us for Christmas Eve candlelight worship including outdoors at Clairemont Elementary School, online at 7pm, or on-demand. Learn more.

Advent Sunday Worship Online

We continue to gather online for weekly worship each Sunday at 10:00am. Join us for music, and teaching, and communion (bring something to use for bread and wine!). During Advent, we are exploring what it means to live as those who dream, even when dreaming is difficult.

Cold Weather Survival Kits

This year, because of COVID, our friends at A Home For Everyone in Dekalb will not open a shelter but will be providing "survival kits" including blankets, sleeping bags, Marta cards, supper bags, and hygiene packs. We’ve heard that the most urgent need is for blankets, hand warmers, and women’s socks for these survival kits. If you’d like to buy some directly, they can be dropped off at the church office on Tuesdays or Thursdays or brought to one of our outdoor worship events.

You can donate or sign-up to participate with this project here:

  • canned chicken

  • canned pinto beans

  • canned kidney beans

  • canned mixed vegetables

  • canned green beans

  • chunky size soups (beef or chicken )
