Special Christmas Eve Offering

This year 100% of the Christmas Eve offering will be put back into the community and go towards mission. 

Here's some ways you and/or your family can be on mission this Christmas. What ideas can you add?

-Host a cookie or candy sharing party in your neighborhood: Invite some neighbors to bring a batch of their favorite Christmas treats.

-Pack a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child

-Gather some friends or another family, or two, and go caroling together at senior living center or nursing home. 

-Learn about the world and how Christmas is celebrated in different parts of the world and in different religions. 

-Collect food and make a couple hampers to be donated to local families in your community or a nearby homeless shelter. LOVE INC in Allendale would be a great connection or Google "Homeless shelters in Grand Rapids area"

-Take a small gift like chocolates or something to local business owners, library staff, first responders, health care workers, law enforcement, etc. 

-Write notes of appreciation and encouragement to people and workers you truly appreciate in the community.

-Leave some quarters and laundry detergent at your local laundry mat. 

-Bless a children's hospital or pediatric office with

fun band-aids.

-Assemble no-sew-fleece blankets for a local women's shelter or The Diaper Ministry.

Here's some ideas to make the most of the season this Christmas and New Years.  

Enjoy these activities with family and friends over the holidays at home!

Movie Marathon - pick some family friendly Christmas movies and veg out. 

Bake Off - Set a timer, divide into two teams, and bake your way to victory.

Hide & Seek - How many awesome hiding spots are there in your home?

Game Night - Turn off the electronics and play some games together. Maybe combine a couple and create a whole new game. 

Crafts and Color - Create a craft project, take pics and post online, then have friends and family vote for best of show. 

Family Drama - As a family, or with friends, create a fun play, record it and then put it on YouTube or social media for family and friends to watch. 

Slumber Party - Everyone in your family sleeps in the living room or family room with sleeping bags and pillows.

Story Time - Each person in the family tells a funny Christmas story of their own making.

Enjoy these outdoor and around town activities:

Take a walk - Count animals, pray for your neighborhood, and get some steps in

Christmas light tour - Cruise through some of the brightest neighborhoods in town or go on a scavenger hunt for the brightest

Bowling - Compete in a competition with family or friends

Fowling - Have you heard of it? Google it. It’s a blast. 

Shop locally - With money and gift cards received go to locally owned shops

Ice Skating - Compete in an ice skating challenge. If there’s no ice put on your socks and have a sliding competition in your kitchen or somewhere in the house. 

Faq's & what to expect


Come as you are and dress like you dress! Sunday best, business casual, or just rolling out of bed. You be you. 


Absolutely! We love kids and families. Our nursery and Pre-K and Kindergarten environments will be open during Christmas Eve services. We invite all elementary aged kids (1st through 5th grade) to join their parents in worship. 


Of course! Both services will have a candle light moment. 


Our services typically last between 50-60 minutes. 


For sure! We will be live-streaming both services at 10:30am and 5:00pm. They will also be available for on-demand viewing after that. If you plan to worship online make sure you have some candles available too!



Faith, and especially Christmas is always better with family and friends. Bring them with you to worship! This year we have an awesome opportunity to share the Christmas message with as many people as possible.
