Christmas Eve Services at Central UMC

(Bulletins to all services are available below!)

*Save the Date for our Christmas Eve Services—Note the Changes that will take place Sunday, December 24, 2017 at 10:00am in the Sanctuary. Because Christmas Eve falls on Sunday this year, we are adjusting the time for our service for our first service to 10:00am.

 

We invite all of God’s children to join us for worship this Christmas Eve. The story of the Good News of the birth of Jesus will be shared through scripture, carols, music, prayer, reflection, and communion in a warm and welcoming sanctuary illuminated by candlelight. 

We hope you can worship with us at one of the three services we will offer. 

 

10:00am - Service for Children and Families of all Ages

Children and youth will lead us in worship and tell the story of the birth of Jesus through readings from Old and New Testament Scripture and traditional carols. All are welcome to receive communion during this service. Childcare is provided for children ages 5 and under.
