4:00 p.m. – New Family Service

This fun and interactive service is intended to connect with families with children. Children of all ages, and anyone who enjoys a good time, will find this service interesting and engaging. There will be a Christmas carol sing-a-long beginning at 3:45 p.m. followed by the service which will have opportunities for participation by all who come, and a special musical storytelling by the children of SPC. The service will culminate in the children bringing paper hearts to lay in the manger as a symbol of giving their hearts to Jesus, and with the singing of Silent Night to the glow of candlelight. A truly family-friendly worship opportunity.
