One Advent 4 Worship at 10:30 on Christmas Eve Morning
Since the Fourth Sunday of Advent falls on December 24th, the Worship and Music Ministry Team has decided to hold one service at 10:30 as the worship staff prepares for the three Christmas Eve worship services, held later that day, beginning at 5:00. The worship in the morning will focus on the Fourth Sunday of Advent rather than Christmas Eve, so you’ll need to come again at night if you want to hear the Nativity story.
Christmas Eve Candlelight Communion Worship Times; 5:00, 8:00, & 10:00
Join the congregation in celebrating the birth of Christ this Christmas Eve at any of the three worship times that best fit your schedule. Here are the times and a brief description of each:
5:00 Family Worship
A Children’s Sermon and anthems sung by both the Cherub and Children’s Choirs as well as the Children’s Bell Choir are the highlight of this worship service. This is a great family-focused worship and we hope you will invite your friends without a church home to join you. Communion will be celebrated and the service ends with candlelight singing of Silent Night.
8:00 Traditional/Youth Worship
The Youth Choir and Bell Choir continue to be the featured choir at this service and returning college students are invited to join them in singing familiar anthems if they choose. A traditional sermon is preached. Communion will be celebrated and the service ends with candlelight singing of Silent Night.
10:00 Classic “Midnight” Worship
The Adult Choir and Bell Choir are the featured choirs at this service with a traditional sermon preached from the pulpit or aisle. While this worship typically ended after midnight when held at 11:00 the Worship and Music Committee decided to move it up an hour after several requests for an earlier time as 11:00 has become too late for many to attend. Communion will be celebrated and the service ends with candlelight singing of Silent Night.
