Christmas with Ingleside – December 12 & 19

In today’s blog, I want to: (1) invite you to “Christmas with Ingleside; (2) tell you about the Christmas Remembrance service; and (3) outline our holiday worship schedule through December and into the New Year.

Christmas with Ingleside – December 12 & 19

In a typical year, literally thousands of people would gather on our campus in multiple presentations for a joyful musical celebration of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

However, this is not a typical year.  So, given the realities and challenges of COVID-19, this year we have made another plan.

On Saturday nights, December 12 & 19, at 7:00 p.m. we will broadcast Christmas with Ingleside – a one-hour, Christmas music special on 41NBC (WMGT).  It will include great numbers from recent Ingleside Christmas programs, as well as a brief gospel presentation with an opportunity to respond.

So, put it on your calendar now.  Invite friends and family to join you, and plan to be part of Christmas with Ingleside on December 12 or 19.

Christmas Remembrance Service – December 13

If you have lost a loved one during the past year, the holiday season may actually amplify the grief and loss you feel.

So, again this year, we have planned a Christmas Remembrance Service designed specifically to provide hope and help to those who have experienced great sorrow and loss.

The service will be in our Chapel on Sunday, December 13, at 4:00 p.m.  No reservation is necessary.  We will practice social distancing and face coverings are strongly encouraged.

Though this is not a large service (typically between 40 and 70 in attendance), it is an impactful service.

So, if you or someone you love are grieving this Christmas season, plan now to be part of the Christmas Remembrance Service.
