Christmas Eve Traveler’s Service
Dec 18 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

From Generation to Generation…we tell this story. 

Christmas Eve is a very special day at Platte Woods Church, but we understand that not everyone can be here on December 24. To accommodate those who are traveling or have other obligations on Christmas Eve, we offer our first Christmas Eve service at 6:30 on Sunday, December 18 with the carols you love to sing, a meaningful message and a special candlelight version of “Silent Night.”

 

We hope you’ll join us as part of your Christmas celebration.

Dec

Wed
The Longest Night Worship Service
Dec 21 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

From Generation to Generation reminds us of the ways our lives, histories, actions, and stories are interconnected and woven together. The work of God is always unfolding—in and through us.

 

This Advent, may you remember that you belong—to a story etched into the wrinkles of time, to generations that have come before and will come after, to a love that won’t let you go. During this time of Celebration, we honor those who have had to let go in this past year. Letting go may be of a person, a place, a job, an identity, or something else. Even as we let go, we embrace God’s love. A love that will not let us go. We honor those who have difficulty with celebrations. We celebrate you, just as God does.
