On the Eve of Christmas, Christians celebrate and wonder at the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. Now, if Jesus was merely another person born approx. 2000 years ago by a poor Jewish girl, this wouldn’t make much sense… But Christians believe that the baby named Jesus was God become Man. At his birth, it was like the King of all kings had finally come to establish his Kingdom. And the world, which had become dark and distant from God, would now begin to be restored…. So Jesus’ birth signals a definitive point of victory in the story of human struggle against death and evil. And therefore we Christians rejoice and fill our hearts with hope in this season.. “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them a light has shone” (Isaiah 9:2)
Come join us for our candle lit Christmas Eve Service as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. All are welcome!
LOCATION CHANGE! This year we will be gathering together at Blackburn Hamlet Community Church (2598 Innes Road, Ottawa)
