Sadly the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic that prevented us from celebrating the Resurrection of Our Lord at Easter in our sanctuary will also prevent us from gathering at church for the celebration of Our Savior’s birth at Christmas. The worship staff realize for many families their Christmas Eve traditions include a particular time for attending worship for a variety of reasons. Rather than pick which time (5:00, 8:00, or 10:00) to provide a livestream worship the staff will be pre-recording our traditional Christmas Eve worship that includes a variety of musical anthems, a children’s sermon, and a traditional sermon. We invite you to acquire candles you can light in your home while singing “Silent Night” at the end of the worship. We plan to make the video available by noon on Christmas Eve on our Facebook page as well as from our website.
And we can use your help in making this Christmas Eve worship special. We realize many people reconnect with other congregation members and family at our Christmas Eve worship. In an effort to provide the opportunity for you and your family to offer Christmas greetings to the congregation we invite you to dress in your Christmas attire and send us a few second video greeting from your family to the congregation that we can include in the worship video we will air on December 24. Please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org so she can forward it to our Communications Technician, Nick Heinze.
