Our Christmas Eve Offering

The Lydia Patterson Institute has served El Paso for 104 years.  But did you know that “La Lydia” has been a blessing to our church, too?  We have had pastors of our church who attended the school, and others who were a part of the ministry.

That’s part of the reason we’re excited about our Christmas Eve offering.  We’re tithing the night’s offering.  So, 10% of everything we receive from the Christmas Eve offering will be given to the Lydia Patterson Institute.

That means we’ll be helping students achieve their educational goals.  95% of all graduating Seniors attend college.  There’s so much to be proud of at LPI.  We’re hopeful you’ll help us support their work.

You can see some of what happens at the school for yourself by watching the video below:

We’ll see you Christmas Eve for our candlelight service.  We can’t wait!

Christmas at Kelsey

Do you have Christmas plans?
We’d love to celebrate Christmas with you and your family! There are several events planned to help you make Christmas a meaningful time. Everyone’s always invited and everything is free. So, consider yourself invited and help us by sharing the invitation.

 

Children’s Christmas Program
Sunday, December 10th @ 6pm
Come watch the kids share the Christmas message with everyone. After the program stay for cookies, refreshments and lots of pictures! It’s always a fun time for everyone.

Youth Christmas Caroling
Friday, December 15th
Our youth group visits members and friends in the nursing home and those who are home bound to sing Christmas carols with them. If you would like them to visit someone you know in Corpus, contact our office.

Christmas Cantata
Sunday, December 17th @ 6:30pm
Our choir has been preparing a musical message for you. Come hear the sounds of Christmas, and make this a family tradition. Of course, there’s always a great time to be had at the fellowship time afterwards.

Sidewalk Christmas
Wednesday, December 20th
We’ll have holiday treats and music available on the church sidewalk. Come and have fun and enjoy a bit of Christian fellowship.

Service of the Longest Night
Thursday, December 21st @ 7pm
In all the Winter Wonderland and Most Wonderful Time of the Year feelings, it’s easy to forget that the holidays are often a difficult time for many people. We take time to pause and recognize the hurt and loss many of us feel during the holidays.

Christmas Eve Candlelight
Sunday, December 24th @ 7pm
It’s Christmas! Celebrate the Savior’s birth as we worship together.

New Year’s Eve Worship
Sunday, December 31st @ 7pm
We’ll usher the New Year with a time of worship, prayer and sharing. Let’s give God thanks for the year that has passed and prayerfully look forward to 2018!

No Breakfast or Sunday School

We just learned there will be no electricity at church this Sunday morning.  Workers have scheduled several hours Sunday morning to continue work related to the Harbor Bridge project.  The power has been turned off a couple of times on Sundays before, but it was always quickly restored before it could affect church activities.  This is the first time the outage is scheduled to last this long.

Therefore, considering the safety of our members and friends, we have cancelled the weekly youth Taco Breakfast (They are off next week, too, for Spring Break) and all Sunday School classes.

Our worship service is still scheduled to take place.  It is Communion Sunday and we’ll do our best to make the most of our time together.  We won’t have A/C, PowerPoint or the organ, but the Holy Spirit will still be there!

Again, no Taco Breakfast or Sunday School classes this weekend (Only this weekend–don’t get any ideas!).  We think this might be a good time for your Sunday School class to meet somewhere else to enjoy a new scenery while you discuss your lesson (restaurant, park, coffee shop, beach, etc).

We would appreciate your help in making sure everyone knows.  Have a great weekend, and we’ll see you Sunday.

It’s Worth It | Sermon Preview

We’re continuing our Committed to Christ sermon series this weekend.  We’ve rediscovered the joy of prayer and the power of the Bible.  There have been over 100 prayer and Bible reading commitments so far.  This Sunday we’ll talk about what it means to worship God.

Of course, we talk a lot about attending and inviting others to worship services.  Surely, though, God wanted us to know more about worship than just to go to a church service, sit, listen and go home.  Right?

Jesus showed us, at least once, the joy of worship.

 At that same hour Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, ‘I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.’

Then turning to the disciples, Jesus said to them privately, ‘Blessed are the eyes that see what you see! For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.’

-Luke 10

What do you think about this worship service?
