The Season of Christmas

The season of Christmas begins with Jesus' birth and extends to Epiphany (3 Kings, January 6). We celebrate the events of Jesus' birth recognizing God's radical step to be with us, in human form, knowing human life in its fullness.

We gather together in the church to share each other's lives, walking where Jesus walked: with people in need, with people seeking healing, with our neighbors and even with our enemies. God's call to walk the walk calls us to growth, calls us to be transformed by the power of love and God's vision of justice. And this mission cannot be accomplished by walking alone. St. Matthew's, Grace Church Van Vorst, Temple Beth-El, and the Christian Church of Jersey City had a blast at our Christmas Day community meal, sharing food and fellowship with all who came.

We walk together each Sunday at 11am. Come walk with us.

O come, all ye faithful!
