At Nativity we believe that Christ's life-transforming love for the world is at work in and through us. If you are seeking a refuge where you will be spiritually fed and a community where your faith can flourish, then come and experience the deep sense of belonging. Nativity offers warm, reverent, Christ-centered worship for all ages. Inspiring music and engaging liturgies with biblically based sermons help us sense and share God's love. We are a community of believers called, guided and empowered by the Holy Spirit to boldly proclaim God's grace and joyfully practice the good news as given to us through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. ~more ~
