Sunday B4 Christmas is a time where we go out to be the church in the community. We will go to local nursing homes to sing carols, bring goodie baskets to local fire stations and hospitals, and our worship team will go to Lumberton Walmart to sing Christmas carols. We will meet at the church at 10:00am, have a time of worship, and then we will go out from there. You will sign up for teams on that day


Tues, Dec 24 | Christmas Eve Service | 5pm 

There are some things that make the holidays special - decorating the Christmas tree, baking cookies, sitting back watching a warm fire, seeing the lights twinkle on houses and, of course, seeing family and friends.The lighting of a candle has always symbolized a special moment. We hope that you will make our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service part of your special holiday moment this year. Our service will have your favorite Christmas carols, a message from Pastor Chad, a candle-lighting moment and worship for our "new-born" King.


Wed, Dec 25 | No Service - Have a Merry Christmas
