Christmas Magic

Christmas isn’t only a holiday at the end of the year. It is a vision of a greater world—dignity, inclusion, and peace for all. This vision, inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus, calls to us through the magic of the season.

What is the call? To be the Christmas you want to see in the world!

The magic of the story of Christ and many of what the Christmas tales tell us, is real. It’s about opening our hearts. It’s about releasing grievances for song, despair for peace, sternness for laughter, and doubt for faith. When the magic of Christmas enters our hearts, we get to share its inspiration everywhere we go.

This year, our candlelight services will be a beacon for Christmas Magic that warms the soul, brings a smile, and reminds us of the light within. And to celebrate it! Don’t hide your light under a bushel. Shine with us, and together, we’ll make Christmas Magic.

Rejoice in the music of the holidays presented by our incredible musical artists. Featuring Acoustic Eidolon, Sheryl Renee, Gianna Neathammer, Bradley Hall, Jennifer Burnett, Barry Ebert, Thom Lich, the Mile Hi Choir directed by Rebecca Stoutamire, and the Mile Hi Band with Kent Rautenstraus, Rob Lowe, Mike Marlier, and Bijoux Barbosa.
