Christmas Story LIVE

December 17

Join us for a no rehearsal run through of the Christmas story on Sunday December 17th at 9:45AM in the CLC center. Get familiar with the story and meaning of Christmas in an interactive way. This is for ALL ages. No lines or songs to learn. No memorization or dancing, just take what we learned and incorporate it into the 11am worship service that morning. We hope families and all ages will plan to join us that morning to experience the Christmas story in a new way.
