Drive In Christmas Eve Service
For many of our First Church families, attending worship on Christmas Eve is an important part of their Christmas tradition. As you know, 2020 has been unlike any other year and we are not able to gather in the sanctuary for our traditional Christmas Eve service.
We will be recording a Christmas Eve service that day as we complete our Advent sermon series “Company’s Coming”. Pastor Edgar’s sermon is entitled “Welcoming the Guest.” The service will be available to view on Facebook and YouTube by 3:00 on December 24th.
As important as it will be for you to watch that service, we understand it isn’t the same as gathering together to raise our voices as we celebrate the birth of Jesus. So…we are inviting you to join us in the church parking lot on December 24th at 7:00 pm. We will hear once again the Christmas story and sing together a few well-loved carols all from the comfort and safety of your car. We invite you to bring some form of light (flashlight or your cell phone) so we can replicate candlelight as we join together in singing Silent Night.
As you know during the pandemic food insecurity has grown so we invite you to bring non-perishable food donations that will be delivered to DMARC’s food pantry.
The service will last no longer than 30 minutes. Gathering together in the parking lot for Christmas Eve will be an experience you will always remember. Please join us and be sure to park facing the church building.
