Our Virtual Christmas Eve Lovefeast will begin at 4:00 p.m. this Thursday, with an extended musical prelude starting at that time. Please drive through the office-side portico at the church between 10 a.m. and noon (on Thursday, December 24) to pick up your “Lovefeast Bags” with everything that you need for the service. The bag will include the Ode that we will follow. If you are not able to pick up a bag, you may provide your own bun, coffee and candle, and please download the ode HERE so that you can follow along. Words to the hymns and carols will not be projected during the service.


The 6:30 Christmas Eve Service will not be streamed online. It will be a service of songs and Scripture and will not include a Lovefeast. Battery-operated candles will be distributed. Registration through our website is required for attendance at this service.


At 8:00 p.m. we will have an outdoor “Christmas Eve Blessing” that will follow the format that we use for our Drive-through Communion services. Beginning at 8:00 p.m. you are invited to drive through the portico (on the office side) where you will be given everything that you need for the gathering. This will include instructions for a Plan A (no rain) version of the gathering and a Plan B (rain) version. After you are served in the portico, please park in any of the available spaces in the parking lot.
