A full day of worship, devotion and celebration of the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ will take place on Sunday, Dec. 24. Below is insight into what to expect across a 15-hour-day of service. 

Morning Worship
(8:30 & 10:30 a.m.)
Informal worship at 8:30 a.m., choir and organ at 10:30 a.m.. Pastor Sandy Hull will preach “The Three Tenses of Christmas,” based on Titus 2:11-14.

Family Service
5:00 p.m.
Stuffed with carols and bustling with activity, this service gives every child the opportunity to dress up as an animal or person (costumes provided) from the Christmas story and be part of an informal yet meaningful pageant.

Communion Service
7:30 p.m.
This quieter and more reflective service centers on communion and concludes with a candlelit “Silent Night.”

Candlelight Service
11:00 p.m.
The exuberant glory of brass, organ, bells, and choir surrounding a hush of wonder by candlelight make this a much-loved and moving worship experience. The musical prelude will begin at 10:30 p.m.

Note: There will be child care all morning and during the 7:30 p.m. service, and Sunday School at 10:30 a.m. Pastor Sandy Hull will preach during the 7:30 and 11:00 p.m. services. The sermon is entitled, “Runaway and Rescue."
