Noon Candlelight Service
Noon – 1:00 pm | Sanctuary | Rev. Lance Marshall
Offering the same special First Church Christmas Eve worship traditions as our 7:00, 9:00, and 11:00 pm evening services, including communion, candlelight, and special music, this midday service provides an earlier alternative to our evening services.
Family Candlelight Services
3:30 & 5:00 pm | Sanctuary | Dr. Tim Bruster & Mister Mark Burrows
Come join us for an evening filled with all our cherished traditions — candlelight, Christmas carols, Communion, and the wondrous story of Jesus’ birth. We’ll also have our kid-favorite Christmas Eve puppet show.
Traditional Candlelight Services
7:00, 9:00 & 11:00 pm | Sanctuary | Dr. Tim Bruster
The traditions of Christmas and the beauty of this night are enhanced by uplifting music and proclamation of the Word, celebrating Holy Communion, singing carols, and lighting candles. The Sanctuary doors will open 20 minutes prior to each service, and special music will be performed by First Church Brass and our own Peggy Graff on organ.
