God is with us — that’s what we celebrate at Christmastime! As we enter into this season, we are going to take time to look at how His Spirit led men and women that first Christmas, and leads us now, that we can rejoice in His love.
We hope you’ll make time to join us for these special times throughout Christmastime as we celebrate the good news that Jesus was born to save us and that He has given His Spirit to us.
We have an easily to follow reading plan that will help all of us spend time in Scripture during Advent this year. What is Advent? It is a time to prepare our hearts fo the celebration of Jesus’s birth. A time to reflect and a time to seek to follow Jesus more closely. This year we are going to go through the Gospel of Matthew to guide our reflection throughout the season — one chapter for each day of Advent! Walk with us by stopping by FaithTree Grow each day until Christmas!
Every Sunday evening, we’ll share an Advent Candle lighting that includes a member of the community sharing some of the promises of Scripture that help us to prepare for Christmas. Come to our site or our social media pages each Sunday night to take part. You can even set up an Advent Wreath of your own and share the candle lighting with your family, if you would like, following along as we do it.
Join us in a special five week series on Mondays at 7 pm that ties into our Advent Candle lightings! We will be reflecting on the work of the Holy Spirit in the story of Christmas. As we look towards 2022, how do we take the hope of the God who is with us and rest in His power to go where He leads us?
A special evening live streaming on December 9 at 7 pm that will explore the amazing story of God’s plan of salvation from the fall of humanity to Jesus’s restoration of all things, linking the Bible to the carols we so often sing at Christmas. This night will help us orient our hearts towards the Lord as we prepare for Christmas. You do not want to miss it (and you don’t want your friends to miss it, either!).
Join us at 7 pm on Christmas Eve as Little Hills has its first Christmas Eve service. We will stream the lighting of the Christ Candle, to complete our Advent Candle lightings, and then turn to God’s Word to meditate on it as we prepare our hearts for Christmas Day.
We all excitedly look towards celebrating Jesus’s birth. However, suddenly it is December 26 and the world resets to its ordinary preoccupations. That’s what is wonderful about observing the Twelve Days of Christmas: it helps us keep reflecting on God’s grace and the miracle of Christmas after the busyness of Christmas Day is past. Our journey through Scripture begins here on Christmas Day, so come back after our Christmas Eve service for a link to this year’s devotional guide.
Join Little Hills and other FaithTree partner churches for a continuous rotation of Christmas music, nostalgic fireplace scenes, meditations from Scripture and more throughout Christmas weekend. Whether you want just a few moments of Christmas joy or want to watch the whole thing, it will be streaming 24x7 from Christmas until Epiphany on YouTube!
