Daylight Christmas Eve Service at 3:00pm
For those who wish to celebrate the Birth of Christ during the daylight hours, this service includes traditional carols with special music by soloists and William Hilbrink on violin, a powerful message, time for prayer and reflection, and a celebration of Holy Communion. Ideally suited for those with difficulties traveling at night, other evening engagements or those preferring to be home earlier; we pray this worship opportunity fills you with the love of Christ.
Family Christmas Eve at 5:00pm
The Family Service focuses on bringing to life the Christmas story for children and families in a meaningful way. Follow That Star is a drama presentation by our Children’s Choir directed by Rachel Ackerman and special music by Amy Moir to inspire families through singing and reflection as we remember the simple and transformational story of Christ’s birth.
Traditional Candlelight Service at 9:00pm
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, Crystal Golden and William Hilbrink offer a rich musical context for the congregation to sing familiar carols to contemplate the significance of Christ breaking into our lives. The service closes lifting our voices to God in a shimmer of candlelight.
