Christmas At The Movies Comes To Abba's House

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Christmas at the Movies will be presented every Sunday in December at Abba’s House.  Each week, the 10:30 a.m. worship service will be themed around a favorite Christmas movie. From sets and songs, to clips and skits, the entire service will revolve around a beloved movie. Then Lead Pastor Ronnie Phillips will take the theme of the movie and draw truths from it from scripture.

“This series is going to be a lot of fun,” said Pastor Phillips. “I’m a Christmas nerd, I just love it. So what better way to get everyone involved than by taking a look at some Christmas movies that we all love.”

The series will open on Dec. 1 with a focus on “The Santa Clause,” followed by “The Preacher’s Wife” on Dec. 8. Pastor Emeritus Dr. Ron Phillips will preach from “It’s A Wonderful Life” on Dec. 15, and Pastor Ronnie will finish up the series with “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” on Dec. 22 and “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” on Dec. 29.

Along the way, the auditorium will be transformed into Scott Calvin’s house and the North Pole, Rev. Henry Biggs’ church, the town of Bedford Falls, Clark Griswold’s home and Whoville.

Everyone is invited to come experience the magic of Christmas at the Movies during December. The morning service begins at 10:30 a.m. Abba’s House is at 5208 Hixson Pike, just north of Northgate Mall.
