Churches across the Santa Clarita Valley will hold special services to reflect on the past year while looking forward to 2020.
In the Bible, Ephesians 4:22-24 says, “You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self,which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.”
Many people start off the new year by making resolutions to meet goals, better themselves and make good choices. For many, attending services with messages of new beginning could help initiate change in the coming year.
Crosspoint Church will be offering a “first Sunday” service on Jan. 5 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. to celebrate the first day of worship in the new year. The church encourages attendance and no reservation is required.
