Christmas 2018

Christmas 2018

CHRISTMAS IS COMING!

Christmastime is not just about trees and ornaments and elves and Santa (although we love all of those things). It is one of the most incredible times of the year, where we celebrate an important day in history: when a Savior was born to the world.  His life was dedicated to giving eternal grace and peace to humanity.  That’s a thrill of hope!

This year, we’re so excited to celebrate this time of year with you and your family.  For many of us in a military town, church family is so important. We want you to understand how loved and welcome you are, and how Jesus’ birth still changes lives today.

We’ll be posting our full schedule here, along with some ways that you can invite your world to come to know how wonderful Christmas is!


CHRISTMAS 2018 SCHEDULE

THE DUMFRIES CHRISTMAS PARADE

Church family, we are so excited to be participating in this year’s Dumfries Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 8. The Parade is from 12noon-3:30 p.m. at the new Town Hall, but we will be announcing when/where we will be meeting that day.

We will be blessing our community by passing out hot chocolate, coffee and balloons to parade-goers, along with sharing Jesus in a practical way. We can’t wait to see you there! Stay tuned for more details!


HOLIDAY SPONSORSHIP DRIVE

It is almost Christmas time! And, for needy families in our community, this time of year can be a challenge.  That’s why, as a church, we will be collecting the following items this holiday season to donate to children and families served by the Prince William County Social Services Office.

Books
Games
Toys
Sporting Goods
Pajamas and slippers (various sizes)
T-shirts/socks (various sizes)
Diapers  
Gift cards (grocery stores, gas stations, Target) 

These items will be due in no later than December 10th, and can be dropped off in the church lobby.  

Let’s be a huge blessing to our community this Christmas season and show Jesus’ love in a practical way! For additional information, please email Deb at dkcarr@verizon.net.


THE 2018 CHRISTMAS SERVICE

This time of year is so wonderful to spend with family and friends, and that’s just what we want to do at our special Christmas service on Sunday, December 23 at 10:00 a.m. at Potomac Middle School.  Invite your world to join in on a really great day!
