Christmas Eve

The sermons throughout Advent have been based on "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens and that continues at both the 7 & 11 pm Christmas Eve Worship Services.

Both worship services will have candle lighting, the songs of the season and the readings of the Christmas story as told by Isaiah & St. Luke.
Pastor Bill Long will share his meditation, "To Keep Christmas Well" at 7 pm based on the tale of Scrooge in "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens.
And at 11 pm, Pastor Bill Long will share his meditation, "I Haven't Missed It" again based on "A Christmas Carol." We will share in Holy Communion as well.


If you are concerned about being in crowds, St. Paul's UCC has several options for you to continue to worship together with us this Christmas Eve:

  • You can worship in the safety of your car in our parking lot at both the 7 & 11 pm services. Tune into FM 88.1 to hear the entire service. Bulletins and communion elements (for 11 pm) are available at the back parking lot door.
  • Overflow seating for the 7 pm service will be available in Fellowship Hall for those who wish to social distance.
  • The 11 pm service typically has a smaller attendance than the 7 pm which allows for more social distancing.
  • Feel free to Worship Online- the service is live streamed at 7 & 11 pm.Bulletins to follow along are available here.
