CHRISTMAS EVE CANDLELIGHT SERVICE
This year, we will be offering five Christmas Eve worship services in an attempt to avoid a large crowd. This option will allow us to social distance and keep gathering numbers low. We are limiting each service to 35 people and asking that you sign-up to reserve seats for your family ahead of time. Sign-up sheets are available at entrance to church on Sunday morning. You can also call or email the church office during the week to make your reservations 570-366-0201 or [email protected]. Christmas Eve services will also be shortened to 30 minutes each.
Service will include lighting of the Advent Wreath, special music, a brief message, reading of the Christmas story, and Candle Lighting closing with Silent Night and Joy to the world. The 4 PM, 5 PM, and 7 PM services will also be live-streamed on Facebook Live. All five services will end with the candle lighting and playing of Silent Night and Joy to the world. If, for some reason, conditions get worse and we are not able to have in person worship, we will livestream 4 PM, 5 PM and 7 PM services only. Be sure to check our Facebook page for updates about Christmas Eve worship.
Please sign up to reserve seating for you and your family ahead of time. Space is limited to 35 people per service. One person equals one seat. Sign-up Sunday morning or Contact the Office.
