As the world swirls and churns in turmoil around us, sometimes the last thing we feel is peace. Yet there is something comforting about even the thought of peace. The same could be said about heaven.
Heaven and peace are linked together and have been the subjects of literature, music, theatre, and art of every kind for centuries. And while people have sought to describe them, and even achieve them, both are still rather mysterious and fraught with misunderstanding. Heaven is not a fantasy or a fairy tale, and peace isn't a legend or wishful thinking – both are real.
Heavenly peace isn't reserved for the "one great day" or an overly dramatic holiday commercial, it's actually available in the future AND now. Although people have been searching for heaven and peace for centuries, this Christmas season we’ll learn what it truly is, and discover that it's closer than any of us think.
Join us for our 2017 Christmas series, Heavenly Peace. Services are Sundays at 9 and 10:45am.
Saturday, December 23 – 4 and 5:45pm (children’s programming through age 3)
Sunday, December 24 – 9 and 10:45am (children’s programming through 6th grade)
Celebrate Christmas with us at one of our four candlelight services. Invite your family and friends via social media, through the WCC App, or pick up print invitations at the Info Center. You can even RSVP and invite others to a specific service through our Events listing on Facebook.
Additionally, we’re providing multiple ways that we can give a little peace to the hurting in our community and world this year.
- WCC’s Care Fund will help three key needs, including; hardship, addiction, and missions. This annual offering will be received in services on Sunday, December 17.
- Adopt-A-Family gives you the chance to provide some Christmas gifts to a family in need. Or, you can provide PJ’s & Bibles through Sonlight’s Christmas Offering project.
- Bell Ringing is a great way to help the Salvation Army raise funds to impact our community physically and spiritually. Multiple dates, times, and locations are available
