NewDay Praise Christmas Worship Event

Saturday, December 21, 6:00
PUMC Worship Annex

“Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son and they shall name him Emmanuel,” which means, “God is with us.” — Matthew 1:23 (NRSV)  

To celebrate the “with us” God of Christmas - God come to us in the flesh as the Christ Child - NewDay Praise’s Christmas Worship will partner with PUMC’s Homeless Outreach to provide some extra love and resources to the persons they serve. On Saturday, December 21, 6:00 p.m., we will gather for a meal (just like the one the Homeless Outreach prepares and delivers on Mondays), to prepare Christmas gifts for homeless persons (which will be delivered on Monday, Dec. 23), and worship the “With Us” God of Christmas.
