On Christmas Eve, Tuesday 12/24, we will have 3 services:
4:30--Children's Service. The lessons and sermon will be replaced by a Christmas
Pageant, our youth choirs will provide music, and there will be a VERY simplified
liturgy (similar to a Children's Chapel service), including a simplified Eucharistic
6:30--Early Christmas Eve "Vigil" Service. This will be a "real" Christmas Eve service,
though just a bit "plainer" than the "Midnight" service. This service will begin
with a prelude and processional hymn at 6:30 and WILL NOT be preceded by 30 minutes
of music. It will be a full Eucharist with a sermon and traditional carols.
10:30--Late Christmas Eve "Midnight" Service. This is the service with "all the trimmings".
It begins with 30 minutes of choral Christmas music, with the service proper beginning
at 11:00 p.m., and will end in the very early minutes of December 25th (thus giving
it its "Midnight" nickname). INCENSE WILL BE USED at this service, only.
On Christmas morning, Wednesday 12/25, we will have one service:
10:30--QuietChristmas Morning Service. This will be a said Eucharist with no music.
