Christmas Eve Services

Please join us in our Christmas Eve celebrations of the coming of Christ into the world and into our hearts. We have three services: 5, 7 and 11 p.m. Family, friends and neighbors are warmly invited!  Nursery care will be available at the 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. services.

5 p.m.  Family Christmas. A Christmas service especially designed for children led by Rev. Daniel Duncan, Pastor of Children & Families Ministries. Includes lighting candles as we sing Silent Night.

7 p.m. Lessons and Carols. This traditional favorite celebrates the birth of Christ through the reading of scripture and by hearing and singing of anthems and carols. Led by Pastor Julie Kline, the service will feature the Entrada Brass Ensemble, the Chancel Choir, and candle-lit congregational singing of 
Silent Night. 

11 p.m. Christmas Communion Service. This service celebrates the message of the angels with holy communion and the Rev. Julie Kline preaching the good news of the birth of Jesus. First Singers will offer choral anthems and the service concludes with candlelight and the singing of Silent Night at midnight.
