All we want for Christmas . . . is to serve alongside this team forever. Thanks for being the greatest crew of volunteers in history.

Here’s a few things coming up in our ministry . . .

Let’s celebrate the holidays with a little fun, food, and friends! Come hang with us. There will be games, presents, and zero meetings.

THIS CHRISTMAS: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON CHRISTMAS
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: You need your family and your family needs you.

SERIES OVERVIEW:
When we think about Christmas, a few things probably come to mind: the Christmas presents (of course), the decorations, the family get-togethers, and . . . oh yeah, maybe even Jesus. In this series, you’ll challenge students to make this Christmas the best one yet — one where they give generously, examine their hearts, value their families, and allow Jesus to change them from the inside out.
