Children’s Christmas Service
Join us as our school students bring you through scripture and song the story of Jesus’ birth.  The service is held on the Sunday before Christmas at 6:00pm.  We recommend arriving early to this service, as it is one of our most attended services every year.

Christmas Eve Candlelight – 7:00pm
Experience the joy of the birth of our Savior in the soft, warm glow of a church full of candlelight.  Our most attended service, the Christmas Eve Candlelight celebrates the birth of Jesus on that first Christmas night more than 2000 years ago.  The service is features special music and liturgy and culminates in the lighting of more than 400 candles held by the congregation.  Truly a joyous and memorable sight.  We hope you’ll join us.

Continuing the celebration from the night before, come experience the joy of the birth of our savior again on Christmas Day.
