Three Good Things That Will Happen In December

1. We will hold our annual Advent by Candlelight program on Sunday, December 6, at 2:00 p.m. This year's program is entirely virtual and can be viewed at www.sjtosa.org/ABC. We hope to "see you there" virtually - and we hope you're able to share the link and invite a family member or friend.

2. We will celebrate the birth of our Savior. Because of gathering size restrictions, we anticipate needing more worship services than usual on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day this year. Please click here to take our brief survey (open through Sunday, December 6) which will help us gauge potential attendance and schedule enough services to accommodate all those who wish to attend. 

3. Our school children will once again share the Christmas story in word and song. Thisyear's children's service will be broadcast at 1:00 p.m. on December 23 (and archived for future viewing) at www.sjtosa.org/chapel. Thank you to everyone who made this virtual service possible!
