5pm Multigenerational Service
This joyful, multi-generational worship is for all ages, featuring the telling of the traditional Christmas story with an interactive, lively pageant. And, of course, there will be the magic of carols and candlelight in a special space. Come celebrate and invite your friends and neighbors to this spirited service.
9pm Candlelight Service
Our late Christmas Eve service will be full of candlelight atmosphere, marvelous music, beloved carols, festal readings, and Christmas spirit. All are welcome to this traditional celebration of song and story, darkness and light, reminding us that even in the coldest, hardest times, hope arrives and claims its place, again and again, in legend, in history, in our own hearts and minds. Come celebrate, bring your family, friends, and visitors to this service of beauty and joy.
Special candles for newborns
At both Christmas Eve services, we will honor all infants born to families in the church in the past year, by naming them and lighting a candle for each to lift up the blessing and hope of their new lives.
If you have a baby born into your family whose name you would like share, please contact Cathy Seggel (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday, December 17.
