Advent and Christmas Schedule

Advent and Christmas Schedule

Advent and Christmas Schedule. During the season of Advent, we focus on God’s promises of a Savior and the preparation for His coming. On Christmas, we then celebrate the fulfillment of those promises and the “good tidings of great joy” that to us has been born a Savior, who is Christ the Lord (Luke 2:10-11). We are pleased to offer the following special opportunities for Advent and Christmas worship:

• Wednesday Evening Advent Services. In the first three weeks of Advent, in-person Wednesday Evening Advent Services will be offered on November 30, December 7, and December 14 at 7:00 PM. The theme for this series of services will be “My Soul Magnifies the Lord: Singing with Mary,” and the messages will focus on Mary’s song of praise (“The Magnificat,” Luke 1:46-55).
• Christmas Eve Candlelight Service. In the final week of Advent, we are pleased to offer a Christmas Eve Candlelight Service on Saturday, December 24, at 7:00 PM, featuring traditional Christmas readings and hymns. As a prelude, seasonal music will be presented at 6:30 PM.
• Christmas Day Divine Service. Christmas Day is on a Sunday this year, and we will celebrate the good news of our Savior’s birth in the Divine Service on Sunday, December 25 at 10:00 AM.
