“Plan to Keep Being Astonished” Online Worship for December 26, 2021

Join in worship and communion with the church family! We often refer to this special time together as concentrated loving. Viewers tune in Saturdays or Sundays to hear the pre-recorded service.

On Sunday, December 26 we cap off the Christmas season and build some inside-smiles in “Plan to Keep Being Astonished” from Luke 2:41-52. The life of Jesus keeps us on a road of marveling. It even keeps us on the road of making bold choices and surprising ourselves with strength and goodness.

In-person Christmas Eve services at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. were streamed on Facebook live and can be found recorded on our webpage, “Messages” .
