This year Christmas will be on a Sunday. Unlike Easter, which is always on a Sunday so the date changes each year, Christmas is assigned to a fixed date, December 25th, so the day of the week changes annually. This year it is on a Sunday. That won’t happen again for another 11 years. You could say it happens once in a blue moon.
Because it happens so rarely, we don’t have a set way of “always doing it” when it comes to our upcoming Christmas weekend worship. So here is what will happen this year at Resurrection: We will be having three services celebrating the birth of Jesus, two on Christmas Eve (4:30 and 7:00 pm) and one on Christmas morning (9:00 am).
All three will have the same message, so pick whichever one fits your schedule.
Don’t forget to invite your family and friends to join you. People are more inclined to say “yes” to an invitation at Christmas than at any other time of the year.
All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”). — Matthew 1:22-23
