“Joy to the World, the Lord is come!”
Celebrate the birth of the Christ Child at one of UCC's four worship services on Tuesday, December 24. Each Christmas Eve service is unique and beautifully culminates the season of Advent. The noon worship service will include inspiring special music, beloved Christmas hymns and communion. Our family-friendly worship service at 5:00 pm will be youthfully inspired with music by our children’s choir, Whitechapel Handbell Choir and UCC Bronze. Witness the Christmas story retold through scripture, cherished carols and a living nativity scene, which will include live animals and feature children in the roles of angels and shepherds. Each child will receive a special gift of light to represent the beauty of Christ’s light to take into the world as they exit the Sanctuary. Thirty minutes prior to the start of our 8:00pm Christmas Eve service, experience a seasonal prelude with trumpet and pipe organ. "This traditional candlelight service will include Christmas hymns and communion. Enjoy holiday music provided by our Chancel Choir and UCC Bell Ringers during worship. The 11:00pm candlelight worship service begins at 10:30pm with a trumpet and organ prelude. The Chancel Choir will sing and the Ad Deum Handbells will ring beautifully. Enjoy singing beloved Christmas hymns at the candlelight service. However and whenever you choose to worship at UCC this Christmas Eve, there is something for everyone!
