Light Shines in the Darkness

Celebrate Christmas Eve

Thursday, December 24 | Mosaic Online

10:00 am, 3:00 pm, 7:00 pm*

Mosaic Kids Christmas Eve Special starts 15 minutes before each gathering time


On Christmas Eve, we’ll gather online to sing Christmas songs and hear the story of Jesus’s birth through a creative storytelling experience. We celebrate Jesus as the light and that “the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1:5)

Pick a time to watch, invite a friend, co-worker, or neighbor, and participate in the wonder and awe of Immanuel — God with us!


*The 7:00 pm Christmas Eve Gathering will be shown in-person with the women and children at Shepherd’s Door. All are invited!

Advent House Gatherings

Be a part of a special four-week House Gathering experience for Advent!


These virtual communities meet on Sundays after watching worship & teaching online to connect, pray together, light each week’s Advent candle, and take communion together. House Gatherings are also finding creative opportunities to be ‘light in the darkness’ in their neighborhoods and communities through the season. Experience Advent in community!
