Advent & Christmas Holiday Schedule

The Advent and Christmas season is a special time of year for the Presbyterian Church of the Master family. Full of music and celebration, we join together to remember and commemorate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Most important is that our celebration be shared with everyone. That is why we invite you to join us for worship, music, and celebration throughout the holidays. Come help us make the Christmas season special this year.
