Christmas Worship

Celebrate the birth of the Messiah with us! We will have three worship opportunities on Christmas Eve.

  • 5:00 PM: Family Service: A service of light with Holy Communion in the early evening. The candles are not lit for this service but uses the theme of the light that Christ brings to the world.
  • 6:15 PM COVID-Safe Service: A small worship service with Holy Communion in the chapel will be held for those who need increased COVID safety protocols. Face masks are required. Space is limited: please register ahead.
  • 11:00 PM: Candlelight Service: Worship with Holy Communion by candlelight; the service features a guest soloist and concludes with the singing of “Silent Night” and proclamation of Christmas Day.

In addition to in-person worship, a pre-recorded video service will be available for viewing at your convenience.

Please note that we will not hold our regular Saturday evening service on Saturday, December 25th. Enjoy the holiday!

As a community in Christ that cares about its neighbors, all our worship services will observe COVID protocols for your safety. Please respect the masking, distancing, and safety needs of others.

  • For the Family and Candlelight Services, masks are recommended but not required. If you wish to wear a mask but forgot it, we will have extras available. Masks are required for the COVID-safe service.
  • Several pews on the front of the organ side of the sanctuary are marked for social distancing.
  • Singing and congregational responses will be reduced or modified.
  • Hand sanitizer is available at the parking lot entrance as well as at the entrances to the sanctuary.
  • Two methods of communion will be offered: one by which you may come forward to receive the bread and wine and one in which you may commune from your seat. To commune from your seat, please pick up a prepackaged communion kit on your way in. Further directions will be given during the service.
  • All worship leaders, communion assistants, and ushers have been vaccinated and will be masked when near the congregation. Communion assistants will use hand sanitizer before communion begins.
