A Christmas Invitation
Christmas is a wonderful time to invite Family & Friends to hear the true story of Christmas. At CLBC we are about so much more than Santa & his reindeer. We are all about Christ & His Gospel! Over the next 2 weeks there will be opportunities to bring people to our Church to hear the Good News of Christmas. Here are 3 special services to invite others to attend with you at CLBC.
**CLBC CHRISTMAS CONCERT – This Sunday, Dec 17th, at 10:15 AM our Church Choir will be presenting “The Word is Alive!” This beautiful musical will paint the picture of Christmas for all of us. Along with the stirring music & readings, the Gospel will be clearly & lovingly shared.
**CHRISTMAS CANDLELIGHT COMMUNION – This Sunday, Dec 17th, at 6:00 PM. During this special service we will be singing Christmas Carols, reading the Christmas Story together & focusing on the Lord’s Table. Although primarily a Worship Service for Believers the Gospel will be presented in the service.
**CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE – On Sunday, Dec 24th, at 10:00 AM (note time change). This Candlelight Family Service will be a special way for you & your family to celebrate together & keep Christ first at Christmas. We will sing Christmas Carols & read the Christmas story together. The sermon will focus on the coming of Christ to the manger in Bethlehem & His EXTRAVAGANT LOVE for us!
These Services are ready made opportunities to expose people to the Gospel. Please Prayerfully….Lovingly…..and Boldly…….. invite Family, Friends & Acquaintances to come with you to CLBC during the Christmas Season.
