Here is the Holiday Event Schedule at First Evangelical Free Church (84th & Van Dorn), our MOPS home church.
Holiday Info & Events
Dec. 8: Special guest speaker, Jeffrey D. Miller:
Born and raised Jewish, Jeffrey turned away from God at an early age. He thought that his secular ways were the key to an exciting career in broadcasting. But when Jeffrey surrendered his life to Jesus, he committed his career to telling the Jewish truth about Jesus. Jeffrey will be our guest speaker during both worship services on Sunday, Dec. 8. His topic “Is Christmas Really Jewish?” will address how the birth of Jesus interacts with Judaism.
Dec. 8: Lincoln Youth Symphony Orchestra:
All are welcome to come and enjoy the Lincoln Youth Symphony Orchestra as they present a wonderful concert of Christmas classics on Dec. 8 starting at 7 p.m. in the Worship Center. The very talented Clark Potter, from our First Free Church family, is the director. This is a free event, though donations to support the Lincoln Youth Symphony Orchestra will be accepted. Refreshments will be served following the concert.
