The Savior is born!
For many of us, Christmas Eve worship is extra special because of the opportunity it brings to sing carols joyfully together, and to pass the light of Christ on candles as we sing Silent Night together at the end of every service. This year, the pandemic has forced us to change our traditions because we cannot have indoor singing or large crowds. But we can still celebrate the coming of Christ into the world with joyful song and candlelight.
Here’s our plan:
CANCELLED – 4:30 pm – Everyone is invited to gather outside Prince of Peace Church on the sidewalk and patio for carols. We will sing several carols together (masked and socially distanced, of course!), culminating in Silent Night, when we pass the light of Christ on candles as we always do. This is a wonderful chance for families with young children to help them experience some of the mystery and beauty of Christmas, and will serve as Prince of Peace’s living-Christmas card to the community. *Note: This event is weather-permitting. A decision will be made by noon on Christmas Eve and posted on our website and Facebook page if the event is cancelled due to inclement weather.
7:30 pm – All are invited to join Prince of Peace Church online for virtual Christmas Eve Worship. This service will be filled with music and the lessons that teach us the story of Jesus’ birth. Rev. Elizabeth D. McLean will deliver the message as always, and we will give glory to God from all of our homes for the coming into the world of God-with-us-Emmanuel. *Note: Our worship services are live-streamed on our Facebook page. You may watch live at 7:30 pm or anytime after that at your convenience.
No matter who you are, or where you are in your life journey, you are welcome here!
