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!

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.
