Come experience a joyful and meaningful celebration this Christmas at Calvary Church.
Sunday, December 24
10:00 am + 4:00 pm
In the Worship Center with viewing available outdoors in the Courtyard and online
(Spanish language translation available at both, ASL available at 10:00 AM)
Come wrap up the season of Advent—of waiting and longing for the Messiah’s arrival—with a joy-filled celebration of Christ’s birth at one of Calvary’s Christmas Eve Candlelight services. Enjoy beautiful music, creative elements, a biblical message, and the lighting of candles. Through these moments, the good news of Jesus will be presented with a powerful message on how your history doesn't determine your destiny. God can do something new in your life, and He wants you to accept the invitation to be part of His family. No matter who we are or what we've done, all are welcomed with open arms to take your seat at the table this Christmas.
