Christmas Eve we will gather for worship at 4pm and 7pm.
4:00pm—”Glowstick-light” Christmas Eve: This shorter Christmas Eve service is planned with young children in mind! We will sing favorite hymns of Christmas, together enact a very short telling of the Christmas story, and share a Children’s message. Instead of candles, we will share green and red glowsticks to help us sing! No need to be silent or sit still even as we sing “Silent Night.”
Please bring a non-perishable food item to share for the offering at the 4pm service.
Ukulele players are encouraged to bring their ukuleles to the 4pm service as we strum and sing “Soon and Very Soon.”
7:00pm—Candlelight Christmas Eve Service: We will sing Christmas carols and hymns, celebrate Christ’s nativity with scripture readings, and conclude our service singing “Silent Night” by Candlelight.
