Unpacking Christmas

Christmas comes every year with a sense of joy and excitement in every card and decoration. Yet, it can still bring an accompanying sense of hurry, stress, or even dread – are we ever prepared for that? Unpacking Christmas provides a guide for examining holiday expectations, creating family memories, and dedicating intentional moments to encounter the Holy Spirit.

It can be nearly impossible to avoid getting caught up in the frantic pace of the holiday season. Between traveling and shopping lists, there’s hardly a moment to breathe, let alone to sit with the Lord. That looming disconnect becomes apparent when our worst selves appear with anxiety and frustration in tow.

It’s natural to experience these very human emotions, but God wants better things for and from us. Being self-aware of your feelings and equipping yourself to express them can bring a more mature sense of joy, peace, and hope into our lives. This Christmas, find your toolset for managing emotions, conflict, and expectations all while recentering on Christ.

Treasure Time With Others

Whether you’re unpacking old traditions or starting new ones, Christmas Eve is the perfect time to join together and celebrate in joyful anticipation of the birth of Jesus. We gather as a family to remember the reason for the season and enjoy a time of quieting our minds to focus on what makes this time of year so special. 

On Christmas Eve, we’ll be announcing a special activity for families and friends alike to complete on Christmas Day in lieu of a service. Join us at one of our services to create lasting memories and experience the true joy of Christmas!

Come Back to a Community in the New Year

After a restful Christmas break, we want to jumpstart 2023 with our Faith Community family! Immediately following the first service of the year on Sunday, January 8th, we will be hosting our Community Hangout at both campuses! There will be fun, food, and time for reconnecting with friends. Join us as we set the tone for the new year together.

Connect with Community

Find Comfort in Heartache

Some Christmas seasons are harder than others. We understand that having room to grieve with others can be even more important than space for celebration. If you are wrestling with broken relationships, fragile faith, unexpected losses, chronic pain, or heartache of any kind, we are here for you.

Join us for a 3-week small group experience led by Dr. Vinnie Cappetta, PhD, Licensed Counselor, or a service intentionally set aside for reflection and restoration on December 19th. We would love to walk alongside you through the holiday season.

A Time of Reflection

Celebrate the Season Together With FCC

The best Christmas traditions remind us that the unending grace Christ gave us began with a quiet night in Bethlehem. Christmas is a time to celebrate and unpack the busy hustle and bustle of the season to quiet ourselves and focus on what it’s all about, enjoying the wonder of it all with the family we were born into or the family we’ve found.

Come spend Christmas Eve at Faith Community Church, where all are welcome to love radically, live generously, and watch Jesus do the extraordinary — together.
