Traditional Candlelight Christmas Eve

Be a part of our traditional candlelight service of Holy Communion. We gather in the warmth of community to hear the story of Christ’s birth and share in the holy meal together. The Chancel Choir offers a rich musical context for the congregation to sing familiar carols as together we reflect on the significance of Christ in our lives. The service closes lifting our voices to God in a shimmer of candlelight.
