Advent & Christmas

Advent & Christmas at SCC


Advent Sunday School

For all ages! Join us for special, hands-on activities during the Sunday School hour (9-9:45am), concluding with a carol sing on Dec. 17!

Advent Worship Services

Our focus this month is PEACE. Join us for worship at 10am on each of the Sundays of Advent (12/3, 12/10, 12/17, and 12/24) as we sing, pray, and study peace while anticipating the coming celebration of Jesus’ birth.

Christmas Eve Candlelight Worship

Christmas Eve Candlelight Worship is on Sunday 12/24 at 5pm. There is no childcare provided, but children of all ages are welcome in worship with their families. There is also space in the entryway and nursery rooms for those who need to wiggle, and the service livestream will be viewable.

Giving Opportunities

Christmas Marketplace

Join us after worship on Sunday 12/10 to shop for baked goods, handmade goods, Christmas decor, and more. Or purchase raffle tickets for a beautiful handmade Christmas quilt! All proceeds go to support the Ushauri Initiative, a youth mentoring program in Kenya.


Our annual giving tree is up and stockings are ready to be filled! Grab a stocking and tag, fill for the child noted on the tag, and return to SCC by Dec. 17. Stockings will be delivered to Vision House families the week before Christmas. We are also collecting Fred Meyer gift cards ($25 cards, please) for Ronald Commons, so families can shop for their own children’s stockings; please deliver cards to the church office by Sunday 12/10.
