Christmas

 

Christmas in Burlington, ON

Author Alistair Begg writes, "Nobody announces that the Christmas season has begun. They just change the music in the stores and in the mall. All of a sudden you realize you're walking through the mall to the tune of something deeply profound like 'Jingle Bells' or 'It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas' or 'Granda got Run Over by a Reindeer.' Or maybe it's something more religious, a Christmas carol like 'Once In Royal David's City' or 'Hark the Herald Angels Sing.' The change in music indicates that Christmas is coming."

But there are other songs that indicate Christmas -- songs found in the Bible that help answer some of the biggest questions of the season. In the New Testament book of Luke we have four songs: 

  • Mary's song answers the question, "What is God like?"
  • Zechariah's song answers the question, "Why do you need God?"
  • The Angels' song addresses, "How did God come?"
  • Simeon's song asks, "How did God do it?

Throughout the month of December we'll be looking at these four songs, and it will all culminate on Christmas Eve when we look to the birth of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world. 

 

Christmas Eve at 5:00pm

The Christmas Eve service begins at 5:00pm. "Why so early?", you might ask. "Aren't churches supposed to have Christmas Eve services at 7pm, or 10pm, or even later?" At Calvary Burlington, we intentionally have our service early so that you can invite friends and family to attend with you, and still have time after the service to visit together or to travel to where you will spend Christmas Day. 

Christmas Eve you'll hear traditional Christmas carols mixed with new favourites, plus experience a Christmas message of joy and hope. There will be childcare for kids up to age 2, and older kids will enjoy the sights and sounds of the season in the main service. 

Join us this year for Christmas in Burlington. Come and sing some of your favourite carols and find out about Jesus, the Saviour of the world. We're saving a seat for you!
