Come Celebrate Christmas with Us
Come celebrate Christmas here at Emmanuel. Bring your family and friends and enjoy Christmas with your Emmanuel family! There are three services to choose from.
Christmas Eve 5:00 pm - Family Service with Birthday Party for Jesus – This service is designed for families. It is a come as you are party and does not require children to be quiet! There is an impromptu Christmas pageant in which every child can take part. There are no lines to be memorized. It tells the Christmas story in a sweet and poignant way. There is nothing more wonderful than seeing the smallest child on someone's shoulders dressed as the star. It is a moment we all look forward to. Then there is an abbreviated Eucharist followed by helium balloons, a birthday cake for Jesus, and a gift for every child. There is no better way to celebrate Jesus' birth as a family. And to be honest there are many of us who do not have children but come anyway because we love to experience our love for Jesus through the lives of the children.
Christmas Eve 10:00 pm - This is a traditional Candlelight service in a semi-darkened sanctuary surrounded by beautiful greens and poinsettias. The Eucharist is beautiful and joyous and is complete with a wonderful Christmas choir lead by our very special choir director Georgia Atkins.
Christmas Day 10:00 am - A traditional Christmas morning service for those who do not want a late night out on Christmas Eve. This beautiful, contemplative service is complete with gorgeous Christmas decorations and lots of Christmas carols.
