It’s the most wonderful time of the year as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus! Christmas is a season of love and miracles, and the perfect time to demonstrate generosity. Let’s unite to take the story of Christmas—the story of love, hope, and redemption—to our neighbors, community, and the world! We want to do three things between now and the end of the year:
Give of our financial resources to enrich the lives of others.
Invite someone who is not connected to a Bible-believing church to attend Thomas Road‘s Virginia Christmas Spectacular and our Christmas Eve service. Then, invite them to join us for a Worship service in New Year.
Go make a difference by volunteering here at church and by intentionally serving someone in your neighborhood.
Gather your family, friends, and Life Group and put your faith into action! Choose how you’ll Give, Invite, and Go then share your experience with us by filling out the form below. Don’t forget to tag us on social media and add #trchristmas to your posts. We can’t wait to see what God is going to do this Christmas season.
Adopt an Angel | Hundreds of “angels in need” from our church and community will gather on our church campus on December 7 for a Christmas party. By adopting one of these angels, you will provide the only Christmas gifts most of these children will receive. Stop by the Christmas display in the lobby on Sundays to choose your angel.
Gift Cards | In addition to giving gifts to the children at our Christmas party, we’d like to give each family a gift card to use toward the purchase of groceries for a Christmas meal. And, with your help, we’d like to surprise each older sibling who attends the party but doesn’t qualify for the Angel Tree program, with a gift card. You may purchase a $25 or $50 gift card and drop it off in the secure donation box in the lobby, give online (link on this page), or give through app and we’ll purchase the gift card for you.
Toys and Gifts (Ages 0-12) | We are partnering with the Hope Community Center in Northern DC area to help bring Christmas to children and their families. Your donated toys will be given to the boys and girls who attend this party. Please bring your unwrapped gifts to the collection bins located in our lobby by December 8.
Come experience the splendor of Christmas at the Virginia Christmas Spectacular. For nearly 50 years, we have celebrated the birth and hope of Jesus through this incredible production, and this year is no exception.
Join us for one of five dazzling performances on December 13 – 15 as we share the heartwarming story – TIME FOR CHRISTMAS. The Von Clausen family has owned Timepiece Toys for generations. The eldest son, Chris, has come home for the holidays only to find the family’s toy factory in chaos. Will his plans to “modernize” the factory lead to productivity or pandemonium? And, will he rediscover the value of time invested in others?
You’ll not want to miss this year’s production filled with uplifting music, a beautiful Nativity, stunning costumes, and hundreds of musicians, dancers, and performers. Plan now to make Thomas Road’s Virginia Christmas Spectacular a part of your Christmas celebration.

The Christmas season involves so many great activities: decorating, family traditions, parties, and gift giving. Give yourself a gift this Christmas by taking time out to reflect on the awe and wonder that this season brings. It all began that first Christmas, when Jesus came to offer us hope for the future. Let’s celebrate the greatest gift ever, together, at Thomas Road.
We would love to see you at one of our services on December 24 at 3:00 pm or 5:00 pm. Stop by the Connect Center and pick up an invitation to invite your friends and family.
From now till the end of the year, we challenge you to make an impact by volunteering somewhere in our ministry during the month of December. And, we encourage you to get to know your neighbors this holiday season. Ask the Lord for opportunities to bless and encourage someone.
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Who is new to your neighborhood? Who may be suffering from an illness or needs your help with a project around the house? Simple and thoughtful gestures can have a big impact. Don’t forget to share your stories with us using the form below and use the #trchristmas on social media.
