Instead of trying to have a regular Sunday morning worship service on Christmas Day, Imani MCC will hold a special service on the day before at the regular 10:00 am time. Everyone will be able to worship on Saturday morning, December 24th, and still have time for family and friends later that day and all day on Christmas.
So the church doors will be locked tight on Christmas - but NOT at 10:00 am the day before Christmas.
I grew up in a time and place where people came to church to strengthen and sustain their relationship with the Lord. They came in obedience to the scriptural mandate to “forsake not the assembling of yourselves together.” They considered it their duty, their pleasure, and their reasonable service to faithfully attend and support their church.
They prayed for the Holy Spirit to lead them to the church of God’s choice for them – a place where they would be fed and nurtured by the Word of Truth being rightly divided; a place of fellowship with like-minded followers of Jesus Christ. So the church did not have to advertise, market, entertain, or compete to get and keep members.
