Christmas Eve Services
At 7pm on Christmas Eve, we will hold a traditional candlelight service, filled with the story of Christ's birth and songs that celebrate the season. This service is the highlight of the year for many because it brings Christ's birth to the center of the season.
At 11:30pm on Christmas Eve, we will have a contemplative Christmas Eve service with midnight ringing of the bell to celebrate the birth of our Savior.
