Christmas

O come, let us adore Him

Christmas is the reminder that we’ve been given the greatest gift ever: the gift of a Savior. This Christmas season you have the opportunity to celebrate that gift as a community of faith at one of our five Christmas services. We also hope you’ll take part in our Christmas Gift project as we share the love of Jesus Christ with those in need in our very own communities.

SELECT A CAMPUS: Centerville Northmont
Christmas Gift

December 7 & 8, Worship Center

This Christmas season we are partnering with the Dayton Public Schools, Northmont City Schools and Springboro Community Assistance Center to provide children and families in need throughout the Miami Valley with many of the items they would otherwise be without this winter.

Here’s how it works. Starting November 9, empty plastic bins will be available at the church for you to pick up and fill with the items we’ll designate on a provided list. Once you’ve filled your bin(s), we ask that you return them no later than Sunday, December 1.

Then, on December 7 & 8, we’ll celebrate as a church what Christ has done through us as we present the 1,500 full bins to the different community organizations. This service is a wonderful opportunity to witness how the spirit of giving can impact many lives.

Why should I RSVP?

Your RSVP helps us provide a better experience for everyone. In addition to letting us know how many people to prepare for, your RSVPs enable us to provide you with information along the way that will help you determine the best service for you and your family to attend.

Does my RSVP reserve seats for me and my family/group?

No. As with all of our worship services, seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. When we can no longer safely accommodate more people, entrances to the Worship Center will be closed.

What if the service I want to RSVP for is full?

If at all possible, please select a different service to attend. You may still choose to attend this service, but it is very likely that we will run out of space. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis, so please be sure to arrive early.

When should I arrive?

On December 22, the Worship Center will open 30 minutes prior to each service. On December 23 and 24, the Worship Center will open 45 minutes prior each service. Seats fill up quickly, so we advise arriving early. We are unable to hold seats for you.

Can I bring my kids?

Yes. Childcare will be available for children birth through Pre-Kindergarten. Older children should attend the service with their family and be included in your RSVP, as there will be no other children's programming. Families are welcome at any of our services; however, our services on December 23 and 24 have been designed specifically for families to enjoy together.
