Everyone is welcome at church tonight…

shutterstock_105372080Some Christmas wishes come true!

Millions of families here in the U.S. and throughout the world would like to be able to celebrate Jesus’ birth today or tomorrow together with friends and neighbors at church. And while the disability ministry movement has made great strides in helping local churches to welcome and include kids with disabilities and their families at church, far too many will encounter insurmountable barriers to worshiping in the physical presence of other Christ-followers this Christmas…

  • Kids and adults who experience panic attacks in crowds
  • Kids and adults with significant sensory processing issues
  • Kids and adults with social anxiety or difficulties with social communication
  • Families of kids who struggle with self-control
  • Families of kids who become distressed in unfamiliar situations

Beginning at 8:00 AM today, and running through Christmas Day, keyministry.tv will be hosting a Christmas worship celebration at our Front Door Online Church platform thanks to the generosity of Community Bible Church. We’ll have great music and an inspiring message from the pastors of CBC. Here’s how to join us…

Go to keyministry.tv.

Connect with us and others attending online by signing in with your Facebook account…a Facebook account isn’t required to attend online church, but to join the chat, either Facebook or a Twitter account in which posts use the hashtag #frontdoorchurch is required.

Connecting through Facebook

Because our Front Door worship hosts have family and church commitments themselves tonight and tomorrow, we can’t promise we’ll always have a worship host…but we will make every effort to connect with everyone leaving a Christmas greeting, praise report or prayer request on our live wall.

You can help by sharing the link to this post on your Facebook wall and through your social media accounts with families you know who would otherwise be missing from church this Christmas.

On behalf of the Board and staff of Key Ministry, we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Blessed and Joyous New Year!
