Christmas Eve Worship

Together we hear the story of Jesus' birth, contemplate what it means for our lives today, sing beloved Christmas songs, light candles, share communion, and experience the warmth of the community in which we have been brought together. The 11pm service is a bit more reflective and quiet than the earlier services.

Christmas Eve Worship

Together we hear the story of Jesus' birth, contemplate what it means for our lives today, sing beloved Christmas songs, light candles, share communion, and experience the warmth of the community in which we have been brought together. The 5pm service is a great option for families with kiddos who will need to get to bed early (yeah, good luck with that!).

Blue Christmas Worship Service & Meal

For many people the holidays do not bring joy and happiness: they may be experiencing grief after the death of a loved one or after a divorce. Couples may have been unable to have a child, or have endured an emotional trauma. Maybe just the pressure of the holiday preparations is overwhelming.

Cross of Grace is reaching out to such individuals by offering a Blue Christmas worship service at 7pm on Wednesday, December 19. This service will have a more quiet mood than the traditional Christmas worship service, but will still be filled with hope and grace. 

Also join us for a meal preceding worship, beginning at 6pm.

Christmas Eve Breakfast

Given that Christmas Eve is on a Sunday this year, we are replacing our typical morning worship schedule with a casual breakfast in the Fellowship Hall. Gather with your family of faith on Sunday, December 24 at 9:30 a.m. for a special catered meal to begin our day of celebration with good food, prayer, and some beautiful music. Please R.S.V.P so we know you’ll join us.

We will also share a pizza lunch & fellowship along the way. Contact the church office to let us know you'll join the fun
