Christmas Eve Service

We invite you to celebrate Christmas with us from the comfort of your home. Our Christmas Eve service will be pre-recorded for the safety of our community and to enable some special opportunities.

On Christmas Eve, join us online at 6pm for our Christmas Eve service filled with singing, scripture, and reflection. We have some special musical moments planned for our Christmas Eve service that we’re especially excited for. You’ll want to join us on time for Christmas Eve as some of our special surprises will be scattered throughout the service.

Visit our worship online page on Christmas Eve for updated links to the service on Facebook and YouTube.

For those who don’t have internet service, please reach out to the church office to receive a DVD of both services in advance so that you can worship with us at the same time as though worshiping online.
