Christmas at Shades

What is Christmas at Shades?

Christmas at Shades features Christmas by Candlelight; the premiere of our short film, "Out for Delivery"; Christmas Eve Worship and Candlelight Service; and, this year, New Year's Eve Worship. This season at Shades is more than just events and services. It's a season for our community, and your individual families, to remember. To remember that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. To remember that God sent a King; a King in the form of His Son whose life, death, burial, and resurrection would change the course of human history.
