    Oasis Church Candlelight Christmas Eve Service 5PM

    Looking for Warren Area Candleight Christmas Eve Worship Services? Oasis-Church-NJ.com, a new contemporary, nondenominational Christian church, will be celebrating its Candlelight Christmas Eve Services on Friday December 24, at 5PM-6pm at 1180 Spruce Drive in Mountainside. Come to an early, warm  Candlelight Christmas Eve service, and then enjoy time with family and friends. This is a church that like to rock out with contemporary Christian music, but tonight we will also be singing  traditional Christmas carols in our candlelight service. For more information or directions contact Lead Pastor David Butler at 732-406-7821 or go to www.Oasis-Church-NJ.com

    Oasis serves Union, Somerset,Morris and Essex Counties County including Scotch Plains, Berekeley Heights, Summit, Union, Westfield, Cranford, Clark, Greenbrook, North Plainfield, Plainfield, Fanwood, Watchung, Warren, New Providence, Springfield, Chatham, Millburn, South Plainfield, Warren,Shorthills, Maplewood, Elizabeth, Irvington and Hillside.

    According to Butler, a heartfelt Christmas Eve Worship Servicemessage will take a biblical but relevant look at how the birth of Jesus over two-thousand years can positively impact your everyday life and outlook today. “I think people want to know what Jesus means for them today. Why does He matter? Amidst the hustle and bustle and bright lights of the Christmas season, it’s so easy to lose sight of the real reason behind our celebration of Christmas, and what that personally means for our ability to enjoy life to the fullest here on Earth. We hope to help answer some of those questions during Christmas Eve.

    Butler also stated, Christmas Eve will be also be a fun, uplifting time for those who have been looking for more in life, and going through loneliness in the holiday season.

    Oasis partners with several charitable organizations in the area that help the poor and less fortunate. Therefore,  the church requests that those who make it out during these next few weeks bring along non-perishable food items that they can distribute to the those in need.

    NOTE: regular Sunday services at Oasis are at 11am during the year. Come be blessed this Christmas Eve Service and all year round!
