IMMANUEL OFFERS TWO SERVICES FOR CHRISTMAS EVE
MORNING: A FAMILY FOCUSED CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE 10:00 a.m.
The special hour was chosen as a mid-morning Christmas Eve hour, with a special service to honor children and families in their hearing and celebrating the Christmas Gospel story. Pastor Barden will utilize the sermon time to give a joint adult and children message. The theme will be “Let’s Open the Gift Together.”
EVENING: A TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS EVE CANDLELIGHT SERVICE AT 10:00 p.m.
Carols and Candlelight have traditionally provided a more reflective atmosphere for the reading and hearing of the Christmas Story. Pastor Barden will preach by candlelight and prepare us for “spreading the light” one to one throughout the congregation. When the Service of the Word and Light is over, we will celebrate the Sacrament of the Lord’s Table. All will be accompanied by the singing of many of our Christmas Carols.
+++ To remember the times on Christmas Eve, think 10 and 10 and tell others. +++
