Daily Service Prompts via Text or Email

Daily Service Prompts start on December 1, and you can sign up for text notifications and email reminders.

The downloadable calendar is also available in the downloads section of the LightTheWorld.org website.


Invitation Sunday on December 22

Christmas is the perfect time to invite friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors to come and attend worship services. Specifically, December 22—which is the Sunday preceding Christmas—may be an especially poignant opportunity to extend an invitation.

We invite you to invite others to come and worship.

Those of other faiths can also visit LightTheWorld.org to find a church in their area.
