CHRISTMAS EVE WORSHIP
There will be three outdoor worship services at 3:00 pm, 5:00 pm, and 7:00 pm on Christmas Eve. There will not be any inside worship on Christmas Eve. We will record and upload the 3pm service to the website along with the Pastor’s Sermon and the Children’s sermon.
Format of Service
The service will be similar in length to our inside service, about a half hour. We will sing as many Christmas hymns as fits within the time frame and liturgy. There will be the celebration of Holy Communion similar to our parking lot communion. Your singing will be accompanied by the taped recording of the organ playing the hymn tunes.
When you drive in and park that evening, in addition to the bulletin, communion packet, and an opportunity to give your offering; you will be given a “glow stick” to light (for the 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm service) for the singing of Silent Night. However, if you wish to bring your own candle- (and your own source of light) for the singing of Silent Night you may do so. If you remain in your car with the lighted candle, you do so at your own risk.
You may remain in your cars for the entire service. You may also stand in front of your cars (6 feet away from others) for any part of the service or the whole service. You may also bring lawn chairs and find a spot in front of your cars (6 feet away from others) or a spot on the grass (6 feet away from others).
Because of the shortened service, there will not be a sermon but Pastor Miller will tape a Christmas sermon which will be put on our website. A children’s sermon will also be on the website.
Exiting the Parking Lot
For the singing of Silent Night (at the 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm service) the parking lot lights will be turned off. They will be turned on immediately after Silent Night but will take about 10 minutes to be fully lit, so, if the lights are not fully on when you leave, please be careful exiting the parking lot. Ushers will direct you as you leave.
