Are you seeking a way to make Christmas more meaningful this year? To help your children understand that Christmas is about more than presents?
Songs of the Nativity, our preaching theme during Advent and Christmas Eve, is based on the nativity stories in the Gospel According to St. Luke. On Christmas Eve, we’ll learn about the message of the “Chorus of Angels” that appeared to the shepherds on the night of Jesus’ birth.
Join us at any of our services at 5 pm, 7 pm or 11 pm. All services include Communion, candlelight, and the singing of traditional Christmas carols. A guest harpist will be playing during communion at the 5 and 7 pm services.
5:00 pm LIVING CHRISTMAS SERVICE (Family-oriented service)
We love giving the children a chance to help us actively celebrate the birth of the Christ Child. Join us at 5 pm in our Great Hall for a family-friendly service that includes a special Trinity tradition: a Living Christmas Story. Children from age 2 – fifth grade are invited to play the parts of either angels, shepherds, sheep, wise men, or stars. There is no advance preparation necessary in order to participate, just plan to arrive by 4:45 pm in Room 303. Costumes are provided. The Living Christmas Story takes place only at the 5 pm service.
This service also includes Communion, candlelight, singing of traditional Christmas carols and a guest harpist. It is held at the Great Hall, a beautifully designed worship space with easy handicapped access, acoustic design features, and rocking chairs for parents with infants.
7:00 pm CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE
The 7 pm service includes traditional carols, candlelight, a guest harpist and Communion, with a brief sermon. There will be childcare for infants (aged six weeks) through preschool, and Children’s Chapel for children in Kindergarten through second grade. This service is held in the Great Hall.
11:00 pm CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE (Chapel)
In this service, we will celebrate the birth of the Christ Child in a more intimate venue, our Chapel. The service again includes traditional carols, candlelight, Communion, and a brief sermon.
