Important Note About December 26

Christmas is a time to reflect on Jesus, God's perfect gift to the world! This season we'll celebrate with 24 Christmas Eve services across our campuses – Franklin, Nolensville, Nashville, Columbia, and online. In the wake of such a busy season, and in keeping with the Biblical practice of Sabbath rest for our dedicated volunteers and staff, we will not be meeting for our regular worship services on Sunday, December 26. We pray you'll use this day to reflect on God's blessings in 2021 and prepare for the exciting things He has in store for each of us personally and as a church body in 2022.

In place of our traditional worship services, we will be hosting a special online experience on December 26 at 8 am, 9:30 am, and 11am.

ADVENT DEVOTIONALS

As November ends and we transition into the Advent Season, it’s important to understand what Advent is. Advent, by definition, is “the arrival of a notable person, thing, or event.” As Christians, we know who that notable person is, what notable thing He represents, and the notable event He carried out on our behalf. That is, Jesus Christ was born in a lowly manger, the Word made flesh, lived a sinless life, and died a sinner’s death, that we may have eternal fellowship with God. Through His resurrection, all things are made new.

While Easter represents Christ’s death and resurrection, Christmas is a time to sit and consider His birth and life. We’re to do this
with the biblical definition of what it means to consider: it is not a passing thought or a quick reminder, but we’re to examine closely (Matthew 6:26), observe well (Luke 12:27, Hebrews 10:24), and look up toward (Hebrews 13:7) Jesus’ fulfillment of the Scriptures.

Two things to note. First, during this season we are placing a pause on our normal reading of the Daily Step and studying various passages in Scripture leading up to Christmas. Our staff has provided this tool that you might read with us through each of these passages every day and share your thoughts on the passage as they have. We hope you find these devotionals helpful and edifying in your personal reading time and that they may inspire you to dive deeper into God’s Word.

Second, many of the selected passages come from the Old Testament. This might seem confusing and counterintuitive; after all, wasn’t the whole purpose of Christ’s coming to institute the New Testament? But, our prayer for you in this season is that the more you see Jesus fulfill the prophecies of old, the more you’ll fall in love with Him in the new. So, dig in and consider with us the joy of the Advent Season, the joy of Jesus Christ.

Our Christmas Eve Services are a special opportunity to invite friends and family, so we encourage you to join us in our 12-2-5 prayer initiative, where we are stopping at 12pm each day leading up to Christmas to pray for 2 minutes for 5 people who we want to invite to a Christmas Eve Service. We believe in the power of prayer and challenge you to be praying with us!

WHAT TO EXPECT

 

 Is there parking available?

Yes! There is plenty of parking available at all our campuses. We also have designated parking for families with your children. Below are the parking maps of each campus.

At all of our campuses, we are providing childcare for birth-3 years. We will also have a children’s worship guide available that will have different quiet activities that children can enjoy during the service.

We will have something for everyone with traditional Christmas songs and Biblical teaching. We’ll end the service by singing Silent Night as candlelight spreads throughout the room.

Yes, we would love for you to serve! We need volunteers to serve on the following teams during each service: parking, greeting, ushers, coffee team, preschool childcare, and online hosts. If you would like more information about these serving opportunities, please visit our serving page or if you're ready to volunteer, please fill out the form for the campus where you plan on serving.

What should I wear?

We encourage everyone to come as they are. The dress is typically casual at Rolling Hills.

What programming are you offering on Sunday, December 19?

On December 19, at all of our campuses, we will have our regular services. However, on December 26, in place of our traditional worship services, we will be hosting a special online experience at 8 am, 9:30 am, and 11am.

 A Note About Covid

In the midst of this global Covid-19 pandemic and all that we are walking through together, please note that across all of our campuses masks are optional for all church attendees and will be available throughout the building. In addition, if you would prefer to be more socially distanced, we have provided campus-specific details below to help. Along with that, if you are more comfortable, worship with us online! We will broadcast live from the Franklin Campus on Thursday, December 23 at 5 & 6:30 pm and on Friday, December 24 at 1, 2:30, 4, & 5:30 pm and have online hosts at each service who would love to chat or pray with you.

Franklin Campus:

  • Attendance on Thursday, December 23 will allow for more self-distancing in the Auditorium. 
  • We also have a separate 100 seat overflow room just off the main Auditorium where you can watch a live stream. Simply ask a member of our usher team to assist you in finding this overflow area. 

Nashville Campus:

  • Our balcony is a great option for those who want to attend in person but would prefer more distance between themselves and a neighbor.

Nolensville Campus: 

  • Attendance on Thursday, December 23 will allow for more self-distancing in the Auditorium. 

Now more than ever, as fears and worries are prevalent, it's time for the church to be the church. Let's bring hope and grace in the time we're living in, friends. Let's love everyone always. Let's be the hands and feet of Jesus.

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. 

 


- John 3:16
