This year things are… different.
And yet, God remains the same yesterday, today and forever. We rejoice in that and celebrate his unchanging love which has come to us in Jesus Christ!
Update on Tuesday, December 21st:
Under the most recent set of pandemic guidelines, it would have been permissible to hold outdoor religious services. However, in light of the Omicron variant, a desire to be cautious, and an increasing desire on the part of many to stay at home if possible, we are cancelling the two outdoor services and moving to an online only format for Christmas Eve.
Here is what to expect:
The service will be uploaded to YouTube here by 6pm on December 24th. It will include carols, Scripture, prayers, a video montage of the recent Drive-Thru Bethlehem put on by our Sunday School and youth, a timely message called “Do not be afraid,” and singing carols in the dark. We will also light the Christ Candle and complete our nativity scene.
Here is a short video that gives you a glimpse, and which you can also share online!
Every year on Christmas Eve we receive a financial offering and give 100% of it away to a worthy cause. This year you are invited to make a financial donation to either our Camp Fund or to Youth Haven. This can be done through etransfer or through our church app. You could also send in a cheque if you prefer. We hope to continually bless others, and this is a great way to do that in a way that will bless and help many young people in the year ahead.
As we all navigate difficult and uncertain territory, let’s persevere in Christ, honouring his birth in worship and service wherever we can and however we can!
