Check out what else is going on in our amazing City and Region by visiting the Durham Region website.
What are you doing on Christmas Eve/Eve?
Christmas is here, and in classic Village style we’ll be celebrating on the ‘Eve’ of Christmas Eve! We’ll have something for the whole family! It will be a 59 min gathering with songs, story, a little fun, and one main idea to take home with you and think about over the holidays. And please…stay for the (after) party if you can!.
Well, the Christmas season is a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus, and how his birth and his life would change the world forever. It’s also a time when we get together with our families and friends, eat (too much) together, and enjoy each others company. We understand that our schedules are very busy, so, in light of that, gathering on the Eve/Eve (23rd) gives us a chance to gather and celebrate before the next Two Big Days roll around. We hope you’ll join us!
What’s in a Name?
There are so many words and names associated with Christmas: Frosty, Noel, Santa, Evergreen, Snow, oh…and Jesus of course.
Every Sunday this December we will be looking at a name that is associated with Jesus, Christmas, and Advent. Before Jesus was born, he was called a few other names, Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. Interesting how all these names represent some kind of need or desire in our life. We are longing for wisdom, for strength, for a good parent or leader in our life, and peace, we all long for peace. It’s pretty amazing that 800 years before Jesus was born, he was given a few names that provide answers to our questions and solutions to some of our problems.
Hope you Join us on this journey from December 1 to December 23.
We hope that our conversations on the Sundays leading up to Christmas will help us be a little more present, more aware, more attentive, to the important things and people around us. See you at 10:33am!
Can’t wait to see you!
Whether we see you over the
