We invite your family to choose from one of four services especially planned for young children and families on Christmas Eve! There will be communion at all four services, as well as a dramatic retelling of the Christmas story from the Gospel of Luke. At 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm, music will be led by Zach Meeks and a contemporary band. At 5:00 pm, music will be led by the children and youth choir. Hymns will be accompanied by the organ at all services.

Children are welcome to come to church in their own costumes. We will have costumes available in the narthex for the Holy Family, shepherds, wise men, angels, sheep, and stars. The creche will be set up in the Julia garden with for photos before and after services. We invite you to enjoy Christmas cookies and holiday beverages as well, and don’t forget to drop into Sumners Hall to see the lovely Christmas Village.
