DECEMBER 24TH

2pm & 4pm

We know the Christmas season is busy and can be overwhelming for many of us, but finding a way to slow down and remember what Christmas is truly about is possible. This Christmas Eve, we're excited to welcome you to “Christmas Eve at Marathon,” a wonderful experience for you and your family to take in together. Grab some hot cocoa and snap some family photos before service and enjoy an evening of music, laughter, celebration, and more as we look at the true meaning of the Christmas season.

We hope you will join us for this unforgettable Christmas experience at Marathon Church!
