Christmas Eve Worship Services

All services will be in-person and online.

We will join together at the end of the Season of Advent – the season of hope and expectation – for our Christmas Eve Services, in-person and online. Gather with us for a time of worship, scripture readings, and a message as we celebrate the coming of Christ our Lord, God with us.

Each of our services has a unique feel and style. All services will be in-person and will stream on Facebook Live, YouTube Live, and Vimeo. Just check back to this page the week of Christmas for links to stream.

What to Expect

We want you to feel at home right away when you worship with SAPC! So, here are a few things you’ll want to know about our Christmas Eve Services.

IF YOU’RE WORSHIPING IN-PERSON…

  • Dress comfortably. Whether it is your coordinating family Christmas best or jeans and flip flops, we encourage you to dress however you feel most comfortable. 
  • Plan to arrive a bit early. We want you to have time to get settled and find your seat. The Sanctuary will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the service.
  • Participate in worship as you feel comfortable. We’ll project song lyrics and readings on the screens in our worship area. The musicians will provide live music for you to enjoy and to help you engage in worship.
  • Bring your kids with you to the service. Although childcare will not be available, your kids will enjoy the service as much as you will! Our 5:00 pm Family Service is created with children especially in mind, but children are welcome at all Christmas Eve services.
  • Listen to an inspiring message.  Pastor Pete will have a powerful message on the first chapter of John, completing our sermon series, “Songs of Christmas.”
  • Follow COVID Safety Protocols. Per our county mandate, masks are required. We will not be able to accommodate social distancing, so please bring your mask or we will have masks available at the entrance. As always, if you are sick, please enjoy the online service from home. Thank you for helping keep each other safe and healthy!
  • Join in the candlelight. Our 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm services will end in candlelight. Candles will be handed out prior to the service so we can end together in the candlelight. Battery operated candles will be available for children.

IF YOU’RE WORSHIPING ONLINE…

  • Plan to tune in a few minutes early. We want you to have time to say hi to the other online worshipers in the chat as well as ensure your stream is connected.
  • Let us know you tuned in. Make sure to fill out a connection card so we know you worshiped with us.
  • Get comfy. Sit in your favorite chair, make some cocoa, and turn on the Christmas tree lights to get ready to worship.
  • Engage in worship. Sing along to your favorite Christmas songs, follow along with the readings, and listen to a message from Pastor Pete.
  • Enjoy family time. Turn off the tablets and smartphones (except for the chat feature on the stream), put aside the holiday to-do list, and postpone the presents to spend quality time with God and with your family.
  • Join in the candlelight. Our 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm services will end in candlelight. Prepare your candles prior to the service so we can end together in the candlelight.
Countdown to Christmas!
