The Miracle of Jesus

A Christmas Event for Families

Sunday, December 6

6:00 - 8:00PM

Families are invited to this open house, indoor/outdoor marketplace event.


Families will begin with the Census Taker to register and receive their coins, map, and items needed to enjoy the Marketplace. Kids will have the opportunity to use their coins in the Marketplace at stops like: The Bethlehem Bakery, Spice Shoppe, Toy Shoppe, Woodworking, Jewelry Making, Mosaics, Basket Weaving, Fisher's Pier, Wool Traders, The Sweet Shoppe, the Stable, and even a Petting Zoo! This interactive event will transport your family back in time to Bethlehem to celebrate the birth of Jesus. As you travel through the Bethlehem Marketplace, you'll share in authentic, multi-sensory experiences and discover the miraculous impact of Jesus birth and life-together!


Because we are COVID-aware, Marketplace shops will have a max capacity, each shop should only take about 10 minutes, and spaces will be sanitized regularly. We recommend that everyone participating wear a mask indoors. All Marketplace shop owners will have a mask and gloves on (if handling food items). Hand washing and sanitizing stations will be available throughout the Marketplace. The open house format allows your family to regulate your time and choose all or a few of the Marketplace shops.


Make plans today to participate and invite your family and friends to The Miracle of Jesus-where families experience Jesus' miraculous love!

Annual Christmas Project

November 15-December 13

We would like to invite you to join us in our annual Christmas service project. We will be providing Christmas Vacation Packs for The Restoration House single mother families. A Christmas tree will be in the foyer beginning THIS Sunday, November 15 with ornaments listing a family's last name and the information on their family along with something you can purchase for the Christmas Vacation Packs. Choose and take an ornament, then return your unwrapped items with the ornament attached no later than Sunday, December 13. You can take as many ornaments as your family would like to fulfill. We need to provide for every ornament on the tree so please let Dena know if you are unable to fulfill an ornament that you took. This project is also open to those worshiping with us online. You can call the office or email Dena and she would be happy to choose an ornament for you. We will gather Sunday evening, December 13 to put together the Christmas Vacation Packs and share some fellowship time.

Church Re-Gathering Plan

In November, we will be offering 2 identical services. One at 9:00 and one at 10:30, both services are open to all.   We are limiting both services so we can safely social distance in the Sanctuary. The 9:00 service is a mask required service. Our second service masks are highly recommended.  During our 10:30 service we will have Kid's Programming for our Elementary students and Preschool students and Nursery.  Parents will need to register their child for both Preschool and Nursery.  See more information below.  


Social Distancing

We will be following the guidelines for reopening given by the Governor’s office. You can read those guidelines Here - Guidance for Gathering


Our Sanctuary will be marked for social distancing by sitting family units 6 feet apart. Please DO NOT change the set up or remove any materials used to mark these areas.

Our Welcome Team will guide you through a contactless experience from the door directly to your worship center seat. At all times we will assist you in maintaining a 6ft. safe distance as you move through the facility.

During this time please refrain from shaking hands, hugging or high fives. 

Kids will enter through the office doors.

Masks - The first service is designed for those who are more vulnerable, masks are required. In the second service, we highly recommend everyone wear a mask.


General Precautions

Do not attend if you are sick or running a fever. Please check the temperature of each family member before arriving. 

High-risk populations should continue to utilize our online services. Remember, there is NO PRESSURE to attend, no one is more or less spiritual. There is no judgment. 

Before and after each service, our facilities team will sanitize our worship center, lobbies, restrooms, doors and all common areas.

Bring your own coffee and water bottle. Water Fountains will not be available, but bottled water will be available if needed.  

After the service we would like for you to fellowship outside, so those who are preparing for the next service will be able to clean.

As a reminder, this is all very fluid. We are influenced by the decisions made by our leadership and county government. 

* Kid’s Worship Reminders
Please help us continue to keep our Kid’s Ministry COVID-free by reminding your child to:

* sanitize before and after service
* keep chairs 6’ apart (unless it’s a family unit)
* wear masks, if your family chooses, when moving around and visiting with other kids
* obey our two-kid max bathroom rule
* respects the boundaries of kids around them

If we can keep doing all of these recommendations, we will continue to have a safe and healthy KidMin Worship Live!


Elementary will have a separate worship at 10:30. We ask that you to enter through the office doors to register your kids. Please utilize the church app check in option to make this faster. Your Elementary kid is welcome in the sanctuary with you and we will send out an online option for Elementary age as well.

For ease of parents minds, each kid will have their temperature checked and be asked to use hand sanitizer as they head back to their area.

For pick up, walk down the hallway to the check-in table and a volunteer will walkie talkie back for your kid to meet you there.
