In addition to the baskets, our food pantry was completely restocked with the remaining donations. In 2018, the tradition and blessings continue with the Miracles of Christmas

Christmas EVE candlelight Services

All services will include a light show, traditional Christmas music, and a special Christmas message. All Christmas Eve services are family friendly; no children's programming will be available.
Do you have plans for Christmas Eve? Why not shake things up a little bit this year? Come with us after the 6:00pm or 7:30pm service on Christmas Eve. We will be delivering boxes of cookies to workers at Camden Clark Hospital and area first responders. It's a kind way of showing God’s love in practical ways to those who must work on Christmas Eve.
