This year Christmas Eve is on a Sunday, so some folks are already asking what the Sunday schedule will look like on December 24.
A Contemplative Service will be held at our regular Sunday morning time of 10 am. Come for an opportunity for extended quiet prayer and music (no sermon). Sunday School children of all ages will join Carolyn Ash in Durant House to bake Christmas cookies and the nursery will also be open. The activity table will be set up in the Hall of Entrance as usual.
Three services will be held in the evening. An All Ages Christmas Eve service will be held in the Sanctuary at 4 pm. This relatively short service will be full of singing and pageantry. Everyone gets to dress up and participate if they choose!
At 6 pm, for the second year, Christmas Eve in the Cloister will take place outside of the main entrance to the church. We’ll share the evening with our unhoused neighbors and mark some of the more “down to earth” aspects of Jesus’ birth story.
At 10 pm a Christmas Eve Candlelight Service will be held in the Sanctuary will special music beginning at 9:30 pm. Cookies and conversation to follow.
