But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
We are excited to celebrate Christmas with you, whatever form that may take this year! The good news of God’s coming to us in the person of Jesus is something for us to hold near in what has been a hard year for so many of us.
Christmas Eve In-Person
For those comfortable and wanting to attend an in-person service, we will be holding three services at 4:00pm, 4:45pm, and 5:30pm.
These three short services (about twenty minutes) will be an adaptation of our video service with a few special in-person twists (candles, for one!).
What To Expect:
Our service will be held outside, by the playground at the church. Since we’re outside, please bring your own chairs, or you are welcome to stand for the short duration. We will be observing social distancing and ask that you wear a mask throughout the service. For our full health guidelines, you can read more about our outdoor service health guidelines.
Please RSVP at the link below to let us know what service you plan on attending. This helps us plan accordingly and allows us to contact you if the weather impacts the service.
We look forward to celebrating together. Alleluia, God has come!
Christmas Eve Video Service
We know that many of our Granite Springs friends and neighbors aren’t able to join us in person. In light of that, we have a video service available on our YouTube channel (link opens in new window) so that we can all worship together. This features a video version of our Lessons and Carols service which we enjoy each year. You can also view this service right here (see below).
