Advent Services (Sundays, 10:45 a.m.)
Christmas Eve Service
Each Sunday during Advent (the four Sundays preceding Christmas), we light a candle to highlight a theme of the Christmas season. Advent is a word that means "coming," and on each of the four Sundays of Advent, we are seeking to prepare our hearts to experience anew the wonder and awe of the what God has done has done for us in sending a Savior. Here are our Advent themes for this year:
November 30, the First Sunday of Advent: The Candle of Hope
December 7, the Second Sunday of Advent: The Candle of Peace
December 14, the Third Sunday of Advent: The Candle of Joy
December 21, the Fourth Sunday of Advent: The Candle of Love
Wednesday, December 24, Christmas Eve: The Christ Candle (see below)
During our services on the four Sundays of Advent, our pastor will be delivering a series of messages that will help us understand more fully not only the story of Christmas but the meaning of Christmas. The title of this year's Advent series is "I'll Be Home for Christmas." The messages are as follows:
Week One: The Home of Your Dreams
Week Two: Running Away from Home
Week Three: Father Knows Best
Week Four: Home for the Holidays
If you miss any of these services, you can listen to the messages online. From the MAIN MENU, click the item SERMONS.
Christmas Eve Service
On Wednesday, December 24, we will have our traditional Candle Light and Communion Christmas Eve Service at 6:30 p.m. For those who want to enjoy additional music of the season, we will have pre-service music beginning at 6:00 p.m. that leads up to the beginning of the service. The service itself will last about an hour and will be feature music, candle lighting, communion, and a short meditation presented in a creative way that will enhance your celebration of the birth of Jesus.

Everyone Needs a Church...
To answer the questions of life . . .
Questions like, “Who am I?” “What’s my purpose?” “What is God really like?” and “Why do bad things happen?” Jesus Christ and His church are uniquely qualified to answer life’s most basic questions.
To share life’s happiness...
The precious moments of life are meant to be shared: the beginning of new life together in marriage, the birth of a new child, the baptism of new believers... these milestones, plus the joy of simple pleasures, are enhanced by the community of a loving congregation.
To help face tragedies...
Everyone faces trouble in life: sorrows, disappointments, sickness, death. Needed support and comfort flows freely from those who share a common faith. How much we need one another in times like these!
To teach about God and the purposes He has for us...
Survey after survey reveals an overwhelming belief in God. But what is He like? How do we know Him? God has answered those questions through the Bible, the special book that is the guide for the church.
To share God’s message and help those in need...
We can do more together than we can do alone. God has always called together a community of believers to help one another and to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. His message can bring healing to a hurting world. Yes, everyone needs a church, and at Clairmont Hills, we would love to be yours!
