Christmas Eve, December 24 

Lessons and Carols, led by the children
4:15 and 6:00pm

The traditional Children’s Christmas Eve services at Grace begin with a candlelight procession. The  children enter the darkened church singing carols, and form a cross in the chancel to sing "O Holy NIght."  When the church lights come back on, we hear lessons and  carols that tell the story of Christ's birth.  The congregation joins the children in singing  Christmas hymns, ending with “Silent Night."

The church opens at 3pm for seating for the 4:15 service. Seating for the 6pm service begins at approximately 5:30.
