Boxing Day Service – Mission & Service Sunday

Long before Boxing Day became associated with sales and shopping, it was an occasion for generosity. It seemes like a perfect Sunday to highlight Mission & Service.

View the Complete Boxing Day service: Mission & Service Sunday

Work is continuing on creating a video, a bulletin insert, and an announcement for the Boxing Day service, which will be posted on this page as they become available, so please check back regularly.
This service has been created as a series of short reflections that can be easily distributed among a variety of worship leaders.

We hope this service makes your Christmas planning a little bit easier and that it means you have more time to spend with your family over the holidays.
