A Sneak Peak at Christmas

Christmas at Willow

This Christmas, we want to provide a space to worship, celebrate, and experience the story of God's love through the birth of Christ. Here's a glimpse of the inspiration behind our Christmas services from Creative Director Nick Benoit:

Christmas is a love story. It’s a love story written in songs, carols we sing throughout the season, reminding us of a night filled with wonder, a night when hope and humanity meet.

It’s a love story written in moments, personal parables that echo a bigger story, like the time when just the right person appeared at our side at just the right moment, the loved one who somehow knew we needed them.

It’s a love story written in memories, like that Christmas morning when we hoped for a gift that was so costly, so long-hoped-for, so fantastic that it seemed impossible.

All the songs, Scriptures, moments, and memories of this season weave themselves together to tell a love story like no other, the story of how the God of the universe will do anything and everything to be close to us.

This Christmas at Willow, we’ll sing songs, hear the well-known story, and tell a few of our own stories to get at the deep-down truth that right now—whoever you are, whatever the longing of your heart may be, whatever mess you find yourself in—God has come to you, has revealed Himself to you, and wants you to know that you are loved.

The whole family is invited to see the story come to life through carol sing-alongs, familiar passages, beloved music, dance, and storytelling—including a message from Steve Gillen that reminds us what it’s like to receive an extravagant gift, one we couldn’t even have hoped to expect.
