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.
