Due to the rising concern about the Omicron Variant of COVID-19, we have decided to make adjustments to our Christmas Eve Services to prioritize safety for all participants. This includes a location change for our 5 PM service to outdoors, some additional regulations for our 9 PM service, and a more robust online offering so that everyone is able to participate comfortably and with security in knowing your safety is being prioritized.
5 PM Service (Previously at The Lincoln Center)
This service will take place in the East church parking lot and be under 45 minutes in length. Please remember to bring chairs for comfortable seating (we’ll also have some available for those that don’t have them)! Masks are required (medical-grade masks encouraged), and vaccination is required for those 12+.
Moving the service outside has allowed us to increase capacity. If you aren’t already registered, save your spot now!
PLEASE NOTE: We are aware that the weather forecast looks somewhat concerning. We will send an email and text to all registered attendees by noon confirming our plan to go forward in person, or case of inclement weather, move to all-online.
9 PM Service
This service will take place as scheduled in the church sanctuary. However, we ask folks to consider carefully if their attendance might pose a risk to others. If you are currently registered but meet any of the following criteria, please consider watching the livestream from home instead of attending in person:
– Anyone who has not received their booster
– Anyone who has traveled out of state or by plane in the last week
– Anyone hosting out-of-town guests
If you are no longer able to attend due to this request or feel more comfortable choosing to tune in from home, please remember to cancel your registration (select “view registration” then “cancel online”).
Online Options available at 7 and 9 PM (and possibly 5 PM)
We previously planned to offer a 7 PM online service; however, due to the changing circumstances, we are now offering two online versions of our services.
7 PM Broadcast – Modern Pageant: Join us online for a heartwarming and funny take on the Nativity story that blends all the traditional elements you love with progressive values.
9 PM Livestream – Meditative Candlelight: Join us in real-time for a magical and meaningful candlelight Christmas Eve service in the sanctuary with piano and cello.
