Christmas Eve

The Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ

7:00 pm:  Christmas Carols

We begin our evening with a half hour of Christmas Carols by request, avoiding those that are already planned for the Festival Eucharist that follows.

7:30 pm:  Festival Holy Eucharist, Rite II

The main event begins at 7:30 pm.  All the candles will be lit, and the service will open with Hymn 83, "O Come, All Ye Faithful."  The Advent Wreath will be entirely white, with the larger Christ Candle lit to announce the birth of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Please join us as we celebrate God's love in the form of the "Word made flesh," Jesus Christ.  As we proclaim each week,

"Wherever you are on your journey of faith,
you are welcome at the Lord's Table.

Readings for Christmas, Proper I:
Isaiah 9:2-7
Psalm 96
Titus 2:11-14
Luke 2:1-20

After the service: Christmas Eve Coffee Hour

You are also invited to stay for our special Christmas Eve Coffee Hour.  We'll have coffee (both "high test" and decaf, depending upon your plans after heading out) and Christmas goodies.

Let us be the first to wish you a very Merry Christmas!
