Evening of Hope and Joy

Celebrate the birth of Christ with a “simulcast" event as Knollwood Christian Community Church (3639 Quebec Avenue South in St. Louis Park) hosts the second annual Women of Faith Christmas on Friday, Dec. 6 beginning at 6 p.m.

Be a part of a special celebration where community members will share stories and songs that bring the wonder of Christmas to life. You will enjoy hearing noted Bible teachers, Sheila Walsh and Lisa Harper. Gain a new perspective on the season as best-selling author and pastor Max Lucado helps discover the gift that holiday hassles cannot take away, and hear a story of hope and purpose from Pastor Rick Warren. 

This is a free event. Bring a non-perishable food item for S.T.E.P.
