O Come Let Us Adore Him, Christ the Lord

Come join us for worship on Christmas Eve as we celebrate the birth of Christ our Lord. Whoever you are and whatever your background may be, you will be welcome for a night of praying, singing Christmas carols, hearing the Christmas story and celebrating. All of our services will include Holy Communion and will end with everyone lighting candles and singing Silent Night.

Children’s Service
with Holy Communion & Candle Lighting

This service is geared specifically for young children (birth through early elementary school) and their families, but as with all of our services, everyone is welcome to attend. There will be a dramatic retelling of the Christmas story in place of a sermon.

Children will receive a Christmas book and a glow wand that they can use during the candle lighting.

Special music will be provided by our children's music ensembles and a brass ensemble.

The service will last 60 minutes and our professionally staffed nursery will be open for children 5 and under who aren't in a worshiping mood.

This tends to be our most popular service, so it's helpful to arrive a little early to find parking and seats.

Family Service
with Holy Communion & Candle Lighting

New this year! We're offering a "family service" that has something for the whole family. Children will love the children's message that will help tell the Christmas story in a dramatic way. Adults will appreciate that the service includes a homily (a shorter version of a typical sermon).

Children will receive a Christmas book and a glow wand that they can use during the candle lighting. 

Special music will be provided by our youth music ensembles and a brass ensemble.

The service will last 60 minutes and our professionally staffed nursery will be open for children 5 and under who aren't in a worshiping mood.

There will be lots of festive music by our adult music ensembles and a brass ensemble.
