Christmas Worship Schedule
Our church school will be presenting a Christmas Play called Matt and Lucy’s Version Birth on Sunday, December 20 during our normal worship hours. The play is a humorous and devotional look at the two versions of the Christmas story and will call for a good bit of audience participation in the form of singing Christmas Carols.
Family Christmas Eve Service — 4 pm.
Once again the family service will begin with an extended prelude offered by our own musicians, from amateur to professional. If you’d like to participate, please let either me or Mary Jane know so that we can formulate an order.
The service itself consists of the birth narrative (Luke and Matthew) and Christmas carols. The hallmark of this service is a Christmas story appropriate for children of all ages (of course including adults!) As always we’ll sing Silent Night by candle light.
Nine Lessons and Carols — 7 pm
Led by our fantastic choir, we’ll work our way through the prophecies of the birth of Jesus, the stories of his birth and the reason why they are so important even still. The choir will sing several glorious pieces of Christmas music and the congregation will add their voice with some of the carols we love to sing — including, of course, Silent Night by candle light.
Christmas Sunday — 10 am
Two days after Christmas we’ll be gathered in the after-glow of the celebrations. We’ll sing and enjoy one another’s company. Please note we do not worship on Christmas Day this year.
