11:00pm - Candlelight Communion Service. Share the sacrament of communion in this moving service that leads up to the midnight hour of Christmas. Candlelight and acoustic music create a special ambiance as the service builds to the moment when you are the first to be wished—and wish others—"Merry Christmas" on Christmas Day.

Christmas can be painful for some. It may be the first Christmas without a loved family member or it may be a time that has always been difficult. The constant refrain about the happiness of the season and getting together with family and friends reminds many people of what they have lost. Blue Christmas Service is a reflective service supporting you and accepting you where you are, for hope and healing. Everyone is welcome, regardless of their religious background.

Daily Scripture

  • Matthew 2:4-6
    “When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written: “‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.’””
