The 7 Services of Christmas


The weekend before Christmas we will be having four Christmas Worship Services here at Grace Church as we continue our Messy Christmas series seeing from John 3:16 that Jesus is a Christmas gift for the Messy! This 65-minute service will include an instrumental rendition of the song, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and vocal Christmas music from our Worship Choir. Our Worship Band will lead us in Christmas favorites such as Angels We Have Heard On High and O Come All Ye Faithful along with the meaningful worship song, Rescue. Matt McElravy will be closing up the message with the song, Welcome To Our World. There will also be a full nursery and children’s program for all four services. The service times are as follows:

Saturday, December 20th – 6pm

Sunday, December 21st – 8:30am

Sunday, December 21st – 10am

Sunday December 21st – 11:30am


Then, on Christmas Eve we will have three very special Christmas Eve services with special lights lining the parking lot as you arrive. The bell choir will be playing holiday music in the lobby prior to the start of each service. The one hour service will begin with a Christmas Duet by David and Jen Felty; and Many Christmas Songs including Joy to the World; O Come All Ye Faithful; Hark the Herald Angels Sing; Lo How A Rose E’er Blooming; O Little Town of Bethlehem; and Silent Night. The evening will also feature a very humorous yet meaningful 15 minute Christmas Drama entitled, “Little What’s His Face” along with my bringing a very brief message. Each service will end with a time of celebrating the birth of Christ through candlelighting. Christmas Eve is being designed as a family service so there will be no nursery or children’s program that evening. Activity bags will be provided by our Children’s Ministry at each service for small children. The service times for Christmas Eve are as follows:

Wednesday, December 24th – 5pm

Wednesday, December 24th – 6:30pm

Wednesday December 24th – 8pm
