    At our home campus, we have a Christmas musical this weekend and next weekend. It's a great program with the gospel given in the play and at the end.

    At our other smaller campus (we have three, the home campus and two smaller campuses - this one is the one that I am not at), the village has a Dicken's Festival and the church is hosting the feeding of the staff and they also have a Christmas Jazz presentation done by one of our worship leaders and some friends of his.

    Finally, at all three campuses, we will have a Christmas Eve service at 4 pm.

    We have a Christmas Play the Sunday night before Christmas. We do not have a service on Christmas unless Christmas falls on a Sunday. Several years ago we decided to not hold service on Christmas Sunday night, to allow families time to be together.

    The church I used to attend held a Live Nativity once, but it wasn't really feasible for a church as small as that one.

    Tuesday nights, gathering together and a period of quiet time allowing God to be with us as we listen for Him.
