May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. -Romans 15:13

Join us as we experience the true meaning of Christmas and celebrate our Savior’s birth. Services will include well-known carols, powerful worship, candle lighting, and an encouraging message of peace and hope.

Christmas Candlelight services will be held December 22 – 24 and all services will have the same experience. Early entry tickets are available for our East Bradenton Campus location. The complete list of service times and campus locations are listed below.

We look forward to celebrating Christmas with you and your family.
