Christmas Eve Candlelight Services

candlelight  2On Christmas Eve we’ll hold two candlelight services, at 4PM and 7PM.   These services are a joyous celebration of the greatest gift ever, the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

The 4pm service is designed to engage every member of the family.   We’ll sing some of our favorite Christmas Carols – some as we have always sung them; while others will be offered in a more contemporary arrangement.

For many our traditional Christmas Eve service at 7pm. is a source of inspiration with its traditional carols, choral pieces, the familiar words of scripture and rich message will nourish our faith. Regardless of which service you attend, we look forward to joining you at the intersection of life and faith. Nursery care for children ages 3 years and younger will be available.




Carol Sing

We’ll finish 2014 with a rousing round of carols at our worship service on Sunday, December 28th. We will gather for worship in the Chapel at 8:30AM and 10:30AM for our annual Carol Sing. With so much beautiful music associated with Advent and Christmas, it’s hard to work all the favorites into worship services. Our Carol Sing is your chance to make requests and join others in singing all those favorites.
