It’s that time of year when stores are packed with shoppers buying Christmas gifts for everyone on their lists. This annual tradition of giving and receiving gifts dates back to the first Christmas, when the wise men presented Jesus with frankincense, gold and myrrh. But the true gift on that first Christmas was the birth of Christ Himself. Join us this Christmas Eve to hear a message on the encounter between the wise men and Jesus. Find out why this timeless encounter is more valuable than any other gift in the world.

Tomoka will celebrate the birth of Jesus with an adjusted service schedule. See the details for each campus below.
