Tis the Season: The True Meaning of Christmas

Christmas means different things to different people. To some people, Christmas means gift-giving and receiving. Who doesn't delight in receiving a gift, even if we don't need it? Who doesn't revel in watching a friend's or loved one's expression of glee when they open a gift we've given?

This Christmas season, we are spending time remembering the true meaning of Christmas and the greatest gift we've ever received. Jesus Christ.

Christmas Eve & Day Services

Celebrate the birth of Christ at one of our candlelight Christmas Eve services!

This simple, beautiful service focuses our attention on the real meaning of Christmas. We read from the scriptures, sing our favorite carols, and reflect on Jesus' entry into the world. At the end of the service, the entire room is filled with candlelight as we worship our savior.

Our Contemporary service will begin at 10:00 a.m. and will have a breakfast buffet for you to enjoy! Our Traditional service will begin at 5:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary.

Don't forget to invite your friends and family to join us for either of these wonderful services!


Each Christmas season, we are reminded there is no greater joy than giving to others. This Advent season our White Christmas offering will go to Embrace FL Kids and Children in Crisis. These organization provide resources for serving babies, children, and youth of our community. Your gift will provide them with homes for the holidays—and every day—embracing them in the powerful and unconditional love of God.

If you are interested in contributing to this year's offering, please head to our website (www.trinityfwb.org), click give, and in the comment, box put "White Christmas." We ask that you be even more prayerful about giving to kids in need.

contemporary worship

Entering the Memorial Fellowship Hall, you are greeted by our worship band's sound with guitars, a keyboard, and a drum set to perform a sound check. When the electronic countdown board reaches zero, the worship band launches into a selected heartfelt song praising God. Each piece is meant to help you focus on your personal devotional experience and praise before the message.

Contemporary worship provides a mix of contemporary and traditional elements. If you love church traditions and a bit more pep in your music, contemporary is the perfect place for you.

traditional worship

Traditional worship at Trinity keeps us in touch with the deepest roots of the Christian faith. We appreciate the traditional elements of worship and have pews, pulpits, choir lofts, robes for pastors and choirs, daylight streaming through the stained glass, the deep resonant sound of a pipe organ, and the classical piano. Voices led by the Chancel Choir lift high the praises of God. It has everything you'd expect in traditional worship.

Every service is a structured combination of the use of traditional prayers and liturgy. It allows you to put yourself in a place where we can hear God's voice through song, traditional prayer, scripture reading, and sermon.
