Community members are being invited by Elevate Church in Santa Clarita to take part in one of seven Christmas services on Sunday, Dec. 22 or Tuesday, Dec. 24.
The message theme this year is “Timeless Hope,” and Lead Pastor Mauricio Ruiz is set to talk about the timelessness of Christmas at all seven services held at the Santa Clarita church’s location in Newhall.
“This year is a ‘Timeless Hope,’ and that simply means that nothing affects the passage of time,” Ruiz said. “You think about culture, you think about fashion, nothing affects Christmas. It’s the most powerful time of the year where we can come together as a family and celebrate the birth of our savior, and then get a lot of cool presents, I’m sure, when you get home."
On Sunday, Dec. 22, services are planned for 8 a.m., 9:45 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. Services are set to feature the message, “the wonder of music,” a special appearance from the Grinch, a dance production, and Santa’s Workshop for kids.
Then for Christmas Eve on Tuesday, Dec. 24, candlelight services are scheduled for 5:30 p.m., 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.. Attendees can enjoy the message, a creative kids production, Santa’s Workshop for kids and a special appearance from the Grinch.
“We’re very creative in how we present the Christmas message,” Ruiz said. “We use a lot of arts, a lot of dance, a lot of music, kids productions -- it’s a whole family event.”
Ruiz added that Elevate Church is “not your typical church,” and makes music centered around Christ a “huge part” of the church’s “value.”
“We have a motto that it’s the perfect place for people who are not, and it’s a safe place, it’s a fun place,” Ruiz said. “Church should be fun, and we like to make God’s message so relevant and applyable to every-single-day life.”
