You are invited to join us on December 24 at 3:00 p.m. or 5:00 p.m. to celebrate Christmas Eve with worship through music, candlelighting, and a special message from Dr. Michael Youssef.
This year, Dr. Youssef will bring a message about the gift of Jesus that is offered to all who would receive it. Both services will have wonderful orchestral music and feature Mac Powell.
We hope you will not only come but invite your family and friends to experience Christmas with you at Apostles.
Child care for children Pre-K and under is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Both Christmas Eve services will be available LIVE online.
Dr. Michael Youssef, Founding Rector
Even before he was born, it was evident that God had a vision for Michael Amerhom Youssef. His mother was in poor health at the time she became pregnant with Michael, and because her life would be jeopardized by the birth, the doctor recommended terminating the pregnancy. An abortion procedure was scheduled. But God intervened, and sent the family pastor to reassure them the night before the procedure was to take place that God was involved in this pregnancy, not to be afraid, and that this child would be “born to serve the Lord.” Michael’s parents accepted the pastor’s message as a message from God and obeyed. His mother gave birth, and lived to see him surrender his life to the Lord in 1964 at age sixteen.
Mac Powell, Worship Leader
Mac Powell is the former singer and founder of Grammy award-winning band Third Day, and worship leader at The Church of The Apostles. Mac also travels with Dr. Youssef for Leading the Way events in addition to his tour dates in support of the release of his recent solo album, “New Creation”.
