Christmas Eve Services

 

On Christmas Eve, Sunday, December 24, we will celebrate the birth of Christ with two services of worship.  At a family worship service at 5:00 p.m., our youth will help us to hear the Christmas story with new ears, relating the Nativity story through Scripture, music, and drama.  At 9:00 p.m., join us for a candlelit evening of Scripture readings and Christmas carols that will be led by our Chancel Choir, pastor, and lay readers.
