Crazy, Busy,  Peaceful, Holy Night -- 4 p.m. Sunday, December 15
Featuring the Cherub and Trinity Children's Choirs, accompanied by Hyperlink praise band
These days, Christmastime is often extremely crazy and busy. From parties to shopping, from recitals to exams—it is easy to lose focus on the Prince of Peace that was born in Bethlehem that holy night. As we read how the story unfolded, we can see that first Christmas was crazy and busy too! Thankfully, Jesus came to bring peace and hope to the chaos in our world.  This musical focuses on a family running in every direction and potentially missing the peace of Christ in the midst of Christmas craziness.
Hyperlink will begin the evening with arrangements of Christmas tunes originally performed by Bing Crosby, David Bowie, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. 

Birthday Party for Jesus -- Sunday, December 15 immediately following the Children's Christmas Musical
Join us for a special party on Sunday, December 15 at about 5 p.m. We will have crafts, a photo booth, pizza, and cupcakes!  

FUSE Sunday School -- Families United in Scripture Education  (Meets September - May)
It meets Sundays from 9-9:40 a.m. in Room G111.  If you and your children (elem. through high school) would like to study the Bible together, please join Wes and Julie Martin for a family-friendly Sunday School!  We will dig deeper into the Scriptures with lessons based on the message from worship.  You and your family can then worship together at 9:45 or your children can attend a second Sunday School.  The nursery is available during FUSE; parents of preschoolers will have to use your discretion as to their participation. Contact Julie for more info at or just show up!
