Children's Christmas Eve  3:30 pm

Come enjoy the magic of Christmas with your little ones! This 20 minute service will include Christmas carols and a simple telling of the Christmas story, complete with visits from Mary, Joseph, and an angel! Watch as the glowing star rises in the sky!

If you have a fussy baby, a wiggly toddler, or a preschooler who likes to shout out questions, and sitting still in a traditional church service seems impossible – then this is the service for you! Come and relax, and enjoy the spirit of Christmas!

Christmas Evening Service  5:00 - 6:00 pm 

In this warm and welcoming service, you'll enter the sanctuary to the sound of beautiful Christmas music.  This service will include traditional Lessons and Carols: we'll sing Christmas carols, and hear the Christmas story from the Bible.  The service will end with everyone lighting candles and singing Silent Night.
