Christmas Eve at Woodmont

Christmas Eve at Woodmont

Christmas Eve is the holiest night of the year as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ – the light that shines in the darkness. This is when our preparation all comes together for Christmas.

Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday so we are making a few minor adjustments to the schedule this year. We will have two morning services at 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. where we light the fourth candle on the Advent wreath, the candle of love. No Bridge service on Christmas Eve (back on Dec. 31). The sermon this Sunday will be on John chapter 1 titled, “What Do You Really Want for Christmas?”. These will be our normal morning services and the final Sunday of Advent.

In the evening, we have four services. 4:00 p.m. is our traditional napkin nativity for families with small children. It lasts about 30 minutes. Our 5:00 p.m. is geared for families with older children and youth and will have lessons, carols, candlelight, and communion. It will last about 45 minutes. We have heard from many families that their kids have outgrown the napkin nativity so we want to offer a candlelight option for them. Both our 6:30 p.m. and 10:00  p.m. will be the traditional services of lessons, carols, and communion. This is such a special day and night in the life of our church. We hope to see your family on Christmas Eve as we prepare to welcome Christ into our hearts and the hope, peace, joy, and love that he brings. His name shall be called, “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Merry Christmas!
