Christmas Eve @ The Fourhundred

Christmas Eve is a time of anticipation. All of the advent season leads up to this eve. Join us this Wednesday night, December 24th, at 6:00 p.m., as we gather to celebrate, sing, read, and respond to the good news of Emmanuel, God with us. After the service, stick around for a reception in the fellowship hall. No childcare is provided, but that’s on purpose. This is a perfect service for families with children of all ages to sing and celebrate together. All are welcome. We look forward to seeing you.

You can RSVP on The City here.
