How would you complete that sentence? Perhaps, without a tree and decorations, or cookies and gifts?
Hopefully, your Christmas also includes worship and embracing anew the powerful Christmas story of a baby born in a manger and the lives that were powerfully touched by the Holy Spirit at the Savior’s birth. Though it’s the old, old story, we need to hear it in fresh and new ways.
The pastors of First Church will present “It Wouldn’t be Christmas Without…”, a special sermon series for the Advent and Christmas seasons. All are welcome and encouraged to join us for worship at 8:30 a.m. (Foundation Service) or 11:00 a.m. (The Gathering), or join the 8:30 service via livestream. In addition, recorded services are available on our website at fumchurch.com
