Evening of Prayer

Dec 2, 6:30 p.m.

Christmas is busy! A year’s worth of activities, parties, plays, and productions crammed into six weeks or less! It’s easy to plow through Christmas without the needed time to slow down, reflect, and pray. With this in mind, we will have an evening of prayer on December 2. This time is open to all as we pray together for our community, country, and church.

JOY Fellowship (50+) Christmas Dinner and Caroling

Students Big Give

Dec 8, 6:00 p.m.

The Big Give event is about being generous followers of Jesus. Students in grades 6–12, along with adult leaders, will be going into the Thornton community and finding ways to serve people in the name of Jesus. During a season that is often focused on getting, with the Big Give we share the love of Jesus through giving.
