New Sermon Series --

“The First Carols of Christmas”

We love the carols of Christmas. There’s something about singing the story of the birth of the Savior that speaks to our hearts and souls. The scriptures tell us that from the beginning Christmas was filled with music. From Mary’s first hymn of praise, “My soul glorifies the Lord,” to the chorus of Angels that sang, “Glory to God in the highest," Christmas carols have celebrated the birth of Christ. During the holiday season, we invite you to sing the familiar words and experience the message of Christmas through the carols.

During this sermon series, we'll sing your favorite Christmas carols, enjoy some of the most beautiful Christmas music and reflect upon the meaning of the story we sing about.

Lifetree Cafe:


LifetreeCafe_logo_4c_tagLifetree Cafe is a free hour of stories and conversation in a relaxed, coffeehouse setting.  It is a place and time for people to gather to explore life and faith.  Each week participants view original videos on a variety of topics and spend time discussing their thoughts and opinions on that week's topic.  Lifetree's motto is "You're welcome just as you are.  Your thoughts are welcome. Your doubts are welcome.  We're all in this together.  God is here, ready to connect with you in a fresh way."

It is not a Sunday school class and it is not a worship service.  Lifetree is a unique experience where people can grapple with real life issues. You do not have to be a member of State Street or any other church to participate in Lifetree.  Everyone is welcome here!


Lifetree Cafe is open on Sunday mornings from 9 - 10 am.  We hope to see you there.
