Thursday, December 24th at 6PM in our parking lot

Make new memories this year with us as we welcome the birth of Jesus by singing carols, reading scripture, and lighting candles outdoors on Christmas Eve. We will play some of our favorite hymns for all to hear through the carillon, located up in the church steeple. Dress warmly, bring your mask, a candle, some beloved friends, and gather with us in the large parking lot of our church at 6PM, Thursday, December 24th.

Even In Uncertain Times,

There Is Always a Reason to Sing!

Our faith gives us hope, despite all else. Whether in the midst of crisis or bliss, there is always a reason to be brimming with hope, abundant in grace, and joyfully centered in love.

This winter give your spirit a reason to sing by sharing your time, your talents, and your story with us as we continue to keep the faith and find ways to be blessings to our neighbors.

listen to heartwarming music

Daily at 6PM through our carillon, located in the church steeple


Each evening we play an inspirational song for the neighborhood to hear. Music ranges from traditional hymns to modern secular favorites, but no matter the selection, these songs are part of an universal language through which we can all find something in common: hope. Feel free to walk by the church or park nearby to hear the nightly song, then go about the rest of your evening with the melody in your spirit!
