Christmas Eve Worship 2020

In News by Kim Eiffert

Just like most of 2020, things are going to look a lot different at Grace Avenue on Christmas Eve this year. As we continue to navigate Covid-19 precautions and climbing case counts our first priority is to live into the call to do no harm.

On that holy night in Bethlehem our Savior entered into the darkness of the world, turned all expectations upside down, and showed us a new way to live and to love. This year we intend to follow that lead and open ourselves up to encounter Christ in new ways.

Christmas Offering 2020

In News by Kim Eiffert

As 2020 draws to a close we find ourselves wondering; “Is there light at the end of the tunnel?” With the pandemic surging we hear news that a vaccine may be on the way and are hopeful that this crisis may soon come to an end.

Christmas, however, offers us of an even greater hope. The light we so desperately long for is the birth of a savior who is Christ the Lord. God’s light, Jesus Christ, cannot be overcome by any darkness or any crisis. While we may await a scientific solution, we need not wait for the opportunity to experience the light of hope, peace, joy and love in our current celebration of Christmas. That opportunity is upon us.
