This Christmas Eve we’re excited to be doing a family-oriented service (Dec 24, 10am) with several opportunities for kids to come up front and be on stage. We’re really excited about having your kids involved and for us to have the chance to celebrate Christmas in a family-oriented way, so we encourage families whose kids are able to be in the service to participate and enjoy it together.
With this, one of our hopes is to be a place where every family feels safe, seen, and has access to worship and community without barriers. Our desire is that all families would be able to participate on Christmas Eve and we recognize that for some kids being in the service is not always an experience that works well for them and their family. This year, we’ve decided to be strategic about how we address this in order to make space for every kid and the wide range of needs that families might have.
What will that look like? On Christmas Eve we will have nursery available as well as an engaging, separate space with our kids team for families to drop off their kids who need it, so parents and kids alike can participate and enjoy Christmas.
Who is this for? We recognize there are barriers preventing some kids from participating in worship, so this is for any kid that will find it particularly challenging to sit through the service.
If you are a family that has a kid that is unable to sit through our interactive service, head to our website and fill out the form whether you are signing a kid up for nursery, our other space, or both. Deadline to register is December 10th. We have limited space available, so make sure to register in a timely manner to reserve your spot.
What we need from you church:
We need you to help us make room for those this would benefit. We want to be a place for all people, a place that makes room for those that sometimes are forgotten or overlooked. This is one way we are trying to do that and we need your help to make that happen. If you want to help us be that kind of place and serve on Christmas Eve, please sign up to serve using the link below. Criminal record checks will need to be done, so make sure to get on that as soon as possible. Thank you church, I appreciate you and your partnership in becoming a place that makes room for the people no one else has room for.
- David, Lead Pastor
