Christmas Eve, December 24 

Lessons and Carols, led by the children

4:15 and 6:00 p.m.

The traditional Children’s Christmas Eve services at Grace begin with a candlelight procession. As the children enter the darkened church singing carols, they form a cross in the chancel.  The church lights come back on, and we hear lessons and  carols that tell the story of Christ's birth and then join the children in singing  Christmas hymns, ending with “Silent Night.”

These services are very well attended. The church opens at 3pm for seating for the 4:15 service. Seating for the 6pm service begins at approximately 5:30.
