What to Expect!

Review the descriptions below to find a Christmas Eve service that fits your worship style.

Family “Candlelight” Service
Gather your family and join us for an interactive Christmas Eve service! We will sing, pray, and invite everyone to participate in the story of Christmas. To include our little ones, we will use glow sticks for “Candlelight” during this service. Arrive 15 mins before or stay after the service to take communion and pray with a pastor! 

Contemporary Candlelight Service
Enjoy contemporary Christmas and a special seasonal sermon. This service ends with candlelight and singing “Joy to the World.”

Lessons & Carols Candlelight Service
Join us as we read the Christmas story in scripture, sing and hear familiar carols, listen to a brief message from a pastor, and end the gathering with candlelight and “Silent Night.”

Traditional Candlelight Service
Sing along to your favorite Christmas hymns – accented by instruments – as we hear a special sermon, light candles, and close the celebration with “Joy to the World.”
