November 27 will mark the beginning of the Christian church year. It also marks the beginning of the journey to Christmas.

 

This year at New Church we would like to ask each member of our congregation to consider making a promise to yourself and each other to be present for each worship service during this special season.  This is simply one of the most beautiful seasons of the church year and is a great time to invite your friends and family. What better time to return to church than at the beginning, in the season when we wait for the coming of the Christ Child?

CHRISTMAS MORNING WORSHIP

December 25 at 11:00am

Online Only

This year Christmas day falls on a Sunday. We will still worship together that morning, but we will gather online only (not onsite). Join us on Facebook for a more interactive experience where you can chat with others or watch through our website.
Since we won’t be together onsite on Christmas morning, we hope you’ll make it a priority to join us for worship onsite on Christmas Eve and then for dinner at the Hudsons’ immediately following worship.
