Christmas events at Faith

This Christmas there are a number of events that you need to be aware of.


Faith Christmas Program on Friday, Dec. 23, 6pm, at the church

If you haven’t been before, the Faith Christmas Program is a very precious opportunity to hear the story of Jesus’ birth, theatrically performed by children, using only the words of the Bible. This makes for a very charming evening, and it is especially fitting that the story of the Savior of the world is told by our Little Theologians.

This is a wonderful event for friends and family and co-workers because the focus is not on professional stagecraft, but the relaxed atmosphere of happy fellowship, celebration, and delight in the story of salvation unfolded before our eyes. At the very end is a candlelight singing of “Silent Night,” followed by fellowship and treats and enjoying one another’s company.

Christmas Program rehearsal on Sunday, Dec. 18, during the Sunday school hour

In place of children’s Sunday school on Dec. 18, the children will instead practice their Scripture passages and be fitted for their costumes. Parents, please email Alisha Hilde if you have questions. Adults, keep in mind that adult Sunday school classes take place as usual on Dec. 18.

Sunday service on Christmas Day, Sunday, Dec. 25, 11am at the church

We will have our regularly scheduled worship service, and John will be preaching from Matthew 2.16-18, in which Herod becomes furious at the wise men because he is threatened by the new king, Jesus. This is reminder to Christians to test our own hearts that we truly believe that Jesus is who the Bible says that He is, and a warning to non-believers to not rashly deny Him.

There will inevitably be churches in town that do not meet on Christmas Day, and some of those folks may visit Faith. Also, there are some who attend church only on significant days (like Easter Sunday). Of course, you should invite friends and co-workers to join you Christmas morning for this service. Please be prepared to greet unfamiliar faces. Look for these guests and welcome them, letting them know that we are happy and privileged to have them. And do not skip saying: "We would love to see you next week!"

Change to the normal Sunday school schedule on Dec. 25 and Jan. 1

The normal Sunday school classes, for children and adults, will not be meeting on Sunday, Dec. 25 or Sunday, Jan. 1. The regular, 9:30am Faith Sunday school classes will pick up again on Sunday, Jan. 8 at 9:30am. For adult classes, John will be continuing the Everyday Theology class and Dale Clark will begin a study of the book of the prophet, Hosea.
