If you’ll be joining us for the first time this Christmas – WELCOME! Park in the front, wear whatever feels comfortable, and expect a warm greeting at the door! Children of all ages are welcome in any of our services. On Sundays, we also offer Nursery / Preschool classes and our special Small Saints message for children in Kindergarten through 2nd grade, during both services. Childcare for children 3 and under is also available during our 4:00 and 5:30 pm services on Christmas Eve – save time and pre-register here!

Started at Mustard Seed Preschool, the mystery box is an opportunity for us to consider how God reveals himself to us through all of his creation. Each Sunday throughout Advent, everyone is invited to bring an item for our ADVENT MYSTERY BOX – an object that makes you think about the season, reminding you of Christ’s birth and the meaning of his arrival on earth. During our Christmas Eve services, Pastor Cassidy will pull an item out of the box and focus his message on that mystery object – yours may be chosen! If you wish to get your object back (items of great value or significance are not recommended), please label it for pick up on Sunday, December 29. All items should be non-perishable and small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. ALL AGES invited to participate – bring an item and place it in the box in the Crossover!
