Christmas

Remote Christmas Worship

O come let us adore him: Christ the Lord!

We invite you to join us in celebrating the birth of Christ throughout the Christmas season. Due to the increasing risks of COVID-19 spread and hospitalizations, we will be worshipping remotely as a congregation this year.

4:30 pm Christmas Eve Worship

Our most interactive service of the season, the “early” service will include tangible ways to participate in worship in person and at home: moving the pieces of a nativity set, writing or drawing, lighting candles, and of course, singing or listening to carols. We’ll tell the story of creation, of God’s promised peaceful kingdom, and how this comes to be in the birth of Jesus. Contact the church office to pick up a worship kit to use at home. This is a great service for folks who prefer to spend the later part of the evening visiting with loved ones online or going to bed early – and particularly wonderful for children.

10:30 pm Christmas Eve Worship

Later on Christmas Eve, we will worship together with our favorite carols, by lighting candles and singing Silent Night, and hearing the age-old story of God’s love made manifest in a baby in Bethlehem. A wonderful service for night owls, singing favorite Christmas hymns, and connecting to the traditions of those who have gone before us.

9:45am Christmas Day Worship

Spend a moment on Christmas morning centering yourself with the light shining through the shadows. Join us in person or online as we celebrate Jesus’ birth in the world and within us.

To connect with any of these services, join us on Facebook Live or sign up for our newsletter to receive log-in information for Zoom.

Finally, if you’re looking for a little Christmas cheer, why not visit our Christmas tree the week of December 19th? Located on the corner of Church St and Waite St, everyone is welcome to bring an ornament or two to make a festive decoration for our neighborhood – though we recommend hardy ornaments and those you’re okay parting with, in case the winter weather does them harm.

No matter where you are, who you’re spending Christmas with, we are one body in Christ, gathered in spirit. You are more than welcome here.
