The Gift of Christmas
Christmas is a gift. We believe this is a special time of year to celebrate one of the greatest act of love that world has ever known. God sent his son Jesus because he loves us and desires to spend eternity with us. This Christmas, Banner Church is taking time to rejoice in the gift of Christmas, and share this amazing gift that is the love of Jesus.
Christmas Eve - Candles, Carols, and Communion
December 24th - 5:00pm & 6:00pm
At Banner, our desire is for every person to know how much Jesus loves them. Maybe Christmas is exciting for you and it is filled with preparation and family, or maybe Christmas is difficult time for you because of hurt or loss. No matter how you feel this season, we know that God wants you to feel loved. That is why we take special time on Christmas Eve to stop, breathe, and remember the love he gave.
Christmas Eve service is a like a 45 minute long deep breath that refreshes the soul and encourages the heart. We will sing traditional carols, light candles to signify the “light of the world,” and receive of communion together in remembrance of the great love that was given for us.
