Christmas Eve Services

Luke’s Gospel tells us that when Mary gave birth to Jesus, she laid him in a manger, for there was no place for them in the inn. Christ was born in an unlikely place. And yet, God makes a place here anyway. God draws the circle wider as shepherds and unexpected guests arrive. This Christmas, let us also make room—for strangers and neighbors alike. For this is good news of great joy for all people.

We will read from the Scriptures, sing carols of Christmas, and reflect on Jesus' entry into the world. We invite you to come, invite a friend, and celebrate God's great love for us.
