Christmas Eve Services

Joy Love Peace Believe Christmas

We hope that you will join us at one of our Christmas Eve services as we celebrate and share in the message of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Christmas- The Birth of Joy


4:00 pm – Children’s Service
Music will be presented by The Hope and Cherub Choirs, The Junior Choir, and The Junior Ringers. Other special traditions include a carol sing and “Christmas Cheers.”

6:00 pm – New Traditions Christmas Eve Communion Service
The Praise Team will lead this service blending classic Christmas Carols and contemporary Christian music. Communion and candlelight will conclude this service.

8:00 pm – Candlelight Lessons and Carols
The Chancel Choir, Cross Connection, Men’s Ensemble, and The Carillon Choir will provide special Christmas music with the singing of carols as the Christmas story unfolds through the Scriptures. Experience the beauty of the season through candlelight and music!

11:00 pm – Candelight Communion Service
This meaningful candlelight Communion service will be enhanced with vocal and instrumental music. The service will end with the “Ringing in of Christmas” at midnight.


There are more than 400 free parking spaces in the Bicentennial Garage, one block from the church near Market Street.

Make a difference along with us. Our Christmas Eve offering will be given away in service — to create 20,000 meals for “Stop Hunger Now” to send around the globe and to help “Act in Faith” serve our homeless and jobless neighbors.

We are building a spiritual home where you are family.
