Advent & Christmas Eve @ First UMC - "The Gift that Can't be Contained"

What Will You Take Out of the Box this Christmas?
Advent & Christmas Eve Worship Services @ First UMC

  This year’s Advent and Christmas Eve theme focuses on the important question, What will you take out of the box this Christmas?  That’s a great question! 

  During these next several Sundays including Christmas Eve, we will be opening Christmas gifts during our worship times.  These are gifts that express the true meaning of Christmas.

  Invite your friends and acquaintances to worship with us during this holy season. Together, let’s unwrap the good news of Jesus’ birth and receive the gifts that God wants each one of us to have.
