Christmas at Ingleside

When Jesus was born, the night sky near Bethlehem was filled with “a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!’” (Luke 2:13-14, ESV).

In a similar way, we anticipate that a multitude will gather at Ingleside this weekend to celebrate the birth of Christ in a big way. I hope you will invite a friend and join us.

Here are the details for this weekend and the remainder of December that you need to know:
