The plea of God’s people throughout history has been for God to intervene – to come down, fix what is broken, heal what is wounded, and make real what faith struggles to imagine. We want the same things these days, don’t we? What if we invited God to come again and opened up our lives to first make room in our hearts for him.
Friday, Dec. 8, 6:30-8 p.m., Christian Life Center, Apex campus
Jingle Jam is a high-energy, fun-filled evening designed with the whole family in mind to teach and remind us the reason we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Join us in the gym for an engaging retelling of the Christmas Story that focuses on the gift of generosity, then stay for train rides, hot cocoa and cookies, games, and more! Monetary donations will be collected for UMCOR for ongoing hurricane relief.
PEACE AT THE PEAK
Wednesday, Dec. 13, 6-8pm, Peak campus
The holidays can be a hectic time. Between the parties, programs, and kids activities, it is difficult to find still and quiet places to encounter the presence of God. Drop by The Peak anytime for an extended time of music, reflection, and prayer. Childcare provided, birth-age 5. Kid-friendly – activities for elementary-aged children.
Friday, Dec. 15, 6-8pm, Christian Life Center, Apex campus
La Gran Posada, or “The Great Posada,” is a celebration of the tradition of Las Posadas, or welcoming to all. La Gran Posada begins with the Christmas story of Mary and Joseph searching for posada (shelter), complete with costumes for all participants. Together we will leave the church and do a quick round of caroling downtown, returning to the CLC gym for traditional posadas food: soup, hot chocolate, cookies, and piñata breaking. Please join us and invite your neighbors! All ages!
