Christmas at National

On December 24, we will celebrate an event from 2,000 years ago that changed history. The God of the universe entered our lives—as one of us—through the birth of Jesus. 

 

This Christmas and Advent season, we invite you to experience a sense of awe and wonder at the incarnation of Jesus and to re-center your life on the God who centered his life on us when he came to us that first Christmas.
