 Want to Partipate?

Many in our community have asked if they can participate in The Living Nativity. The answer is yes! Each year, church and community members give their time and effort to make The Living Nativity a reality for those who drive through. If you and your family would like to participate in The Living Nativity, we welcome you! Please call our church office at 404-634-6231 for more information and to sign up for one, two or all three nights—or use the link below to sign up online, and we will contact you with more details. We have two shifts that alternate each night, usually 30 minutes on and 30 minutes off. In short, participants should report to the Fellowship Hall on the 3rd floor at least an hour before start time for a character assignment, a costume, and a free meal; park on the North Druid Hills Road side of our building. No other entrances will be open.

Advent Services (Sundays, 10:45 a.m.)
Christmas Eve Service 

Each Sunday during Advent (the four Sundays preceding Christmas), we light a candle to highlight a theme of the Christmas season. Advent is a word that means "coming," and on each of the four Sundays of Advent, we are seeking to prepare our hearts to experience anew the wonder and awe of the what God has done has done for us in sending a Savior. Here are our Advent themes for this year:

November 29, the First Sunday of Advent: The Prophecy Candle
December 6, the Second Sunday of Advent: The Bethlehem Candle
December 13, the Third Sunday of Advent: The Shepherds' Candle
December 20, the Fourth Sunday of Advent: The Magi Candle

Wednesday, December 24, Christmas Eve: The Christ Candle (see below)

During our services on the four Sundays of Advent, our pastor will be delivering a series of messages that will help us understand more fully not only the story of Christmas but the meaning of Christmas. The title of this year's Advent series is "Ready for Christmas." The messages are as follows:

Week One: Waiting for God
Week Two: Preparing for Christmas
Week Three: Sharing Christmas
Week Four: A Christmas Gift

If you miss any of these services, you can listen to the messages online. From the MAIN MENU, click the item SERMONS.

Christmas Eve Service

On Thursday, December 24, we will have our traditional Candle Light and Communion Christmas Eve Service at 6:30 p.m. For those who want to enjoy additional music of the season, we will have pre-service music beginning at 6:00 p.m. that leads up to the beginning of the service. The service itself will last about an hour and will be feature music, candle lighting, communion, and a short meditation presented in a creative way that will enhance your celebration of the birth of Jesus.


Everyone Needs a Church...

To answer the questions of life . . .

Questions like, “Who am I?” “What’s my purpose?” “What is God really like?” and “Why do bad things happen?” Jesus Christ and His church are uniquely qualified to answer life’s most basic questions.

To share life’s happiness...

The precious moments of life are meant to be shared: the beginning of new life together in marriage, the birth of a new child, the baptism of new believers... these milestones, plus the joy of simple pleasures, are enhanced by the community of a loving congregation.

To help face tragedies...

Everyone faces trouble in life: sorrows, disappointments, sickness, death. Needed support and comfort flows freely from those who share a common faith. How much we need one another in times like these!

To teach about God and the purposes He has for us...

Survey after survey reveals an overwhelming belief in God. But what is He like? How do we know Him? God has answered those questions through the Bible, the special book that is the guide for the church.

To share God’s message and help those in need...

We can do more together than we can do alone. God has always called together a community of believers to help one another and to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. His message can bring healing to a hurting world. Yes, everyone needs a church, and at Clairmont Hills, we would love to be yours!
