Christmas Eve at Covenant-First

Our Christmas Eve candlelight service is a special holiday tradition for the whole community.  Come early at 6:30 to enjoy inspiring pre-service music.  The service begins at 7pm.  Come be inspired by a stirring message on Jesus, the light of the world.  Come ignite your reverence and wonder with a traditional candle-lighting.  Come join with your friends and neighbors to commemorate the birth of Christ.  

Sunday Worship:  The Christmas Spirit Series

Do you have the Christmas Spirit? Our modern American Christmas season has grown into a monthlong carnival of lights, festivity, gifts, and wonder. In this series, we’ll take a look at what we have come to expect in “the perfect American Christmas” and how those expectations actually point us to a greater hope in Christ.

Sunday Dec 4, 10:30am: Festivity. Jolly Old St. Nicholas. Merry Old Fezziwig. Buddy the Elf. We picture Christmas as a time of playful merriment. In this sermon, we’ll reflect on our true cause for celebration.

Sunday Dec 11, 10:30am: Gifts. What do you really want for Christmas this year? Are you bold enough to ask for it? In this sermon, we’ll consider a gift giver who is even better than Santa Claus.

Sunday Dec 18, 10:30am: Wonder. Do reindeer really know how to fly? Is there really a polar express? In this sermon, we’ll be challenged to once again see the world through a child’s eyes.

Saturday Dec 24 7pm: Light. Christmas light displays bring joy in the darkest season of the year. On Christmas Eve, we remember Christ, the Light of the World.

Sunday Dec 25, 10:30am: Hope. Christmas falls on a Sunday this year. Gather with us in this simple service as we look to the hope that enriches all our Christmas celebrations: hope in Christ.

Christmas Mission: 21st Century Swaddling Clothes

We're partnering again this year with United Ministries for our Christmas Mission.  They told us they get all kinds of things for families in need - but one need that consistently goes unfilled is children's underwear.  So we're doing our part.  All through this season, we'll be collecting new packages of children's underwear.  Bring them to worship (or any of our events) or drop them off during regular office hours!
