Christmas Eve Schedule

Christmas Eve Services

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 tmichelangelo_merisi_da_caravaggio_-_nativity_with_st_francis_and_st_lawrence_-_wga04193o 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
Christmas falls on a Sunday, and yes, for those who would like to gather for worship, you are welcome!  It’ll be small. It’ll be filled with the peace and joy of Christmas day.  It’ll be short.  But what a way to celebrate.  I do hope you can join us!
