This year there will be two Christmas Eve services at First Congregational UCC!
On Christmas Eve, our stained glass windows will be restored, dark, occluding Plexiglas replaced with clear plate glass. As we light candles and raise our voices in song, the light of Christ we celebrate shine out unobstructed into the silent, holy night, a star of hope burning brightly.
Living Nativity and Celebration Choir | 5:00pm
Our children will lead us in a dramatic telling of the Nativity Story. We have plenty of costumes, and no rehearsal is required. All children, including family and friends visiting for Christmas, are welcome to participate. Costuming begins at 4:30pm in Fellowship Hall.
This year for the first time, the joyful voices of our Celebration Choir will help us celebrate the birth of Christ.
Music and Lights | 10:00pm
Our 10:00pm service of Music and Lights begins with a Christmas Carol sing-along. This service of Lessons and Carols features a chamber orchestra, Campanella Ringers, and the Chancel Choir. In sacred beauty, we sing Silent Night by candlelight, and conclude with voices raised together, singing Joy to the World!
