Wave Church presents a “Classic Christmas Eve” on Saturday, Dec. 24, 2016. Christmas Eve is a time for celebrating with friends and family. From its spiritual roots to today’s commercialism, the true meaning of Christmas is often lodged between the fluff. Many will gather and visit different churches across the area this weekend. Wave Church has high hopes that people from all walks of life would pause and join them as they celebrate the birth of Christ this Christmas Eve.
In such a fast-paced, technologically perceptive society, the classic meaning and symbolism of such a sacred holiday as Christmas has been forgotten. Instead of the time when people would travel to spend time with loved ones and exchange gifts, many have transitioned to simple e-cards, digital downloads and electronically distributed gifts. Amid the hustle and bustle of such a busy time, it is refreshing for Wave Church to slow things down and present a “Classic Christmas Eve.” When speaking of the upcoming production, Steve Kelly, Senior Pastor of Wave Church said:
We are very excited to share in the celebration of Christmas with the community. Our vision is to see many people come to church to experience an excellent production and in turn hear the message of Jesus and all He has done for us.
As attendees of musical productions have witnessed in the past, the Classic Christmas Production will follow suit. Wave Church, led by Steve and Sharon Kelly, is a worship experience geared towards the entire family. The ministry gifting of this dynamic couple has led thousands of people into a relationship with Jesus Christ by simply sharing the message of God’s love, goodness, and grace. On this coming Saturday, as people from all over Hampton Roads flood the auditorium, the goal will be the same.
What does classic mean in reference to Christmas? It signifies tradition and gives a sense of nostalgia while returning the focus to a time when things were less complicated. Wave Church endeavors to present, not just another flashy or high-powered production, but a classic musical to remind people what Christmas is really about.
Although a “Classic Christmas Eve” may sound simple, the Create team of Wave Church promises an inspirational musical production with the same professionalism past attendees are accustomed to. This year’s production will delight the kids with lights, sound and special effects while bringing back warm memories for all generations.
On Christmas Eve, make plans to join Wave Church’s celebration of the birth of Jesus and experience a classic Christmas production. The stimulating musical will take place at both Virginia Beach campuses. The first will begin promptly at 4 p.m. at the Great Neck Campus located at 1000 N. Great Neck Rd. and the second will follow at 6 p.m. at the Seaboard Campus situated at 2655 Seaboard Rd.
Wave is a growing church in love with God, life and people; changing their world one life at a time. Pastors Steve and Sharon, in conjunction with the Creative Department at Wave Church, can hardly wait to see you!
