December 21 6pm The Longest Night Worship
This will be a time for family to gather and for churches to worship pointing to the hope that is found in the coming of the Christ child. However, this time of joy and expectation can often overshadow the pain and hurt many experience during this season, when the world’s merriment puts their grief and sorrow in start relief. December 21st is the winter solstice, or longest night of the year. Come to worship and allow God to acknowledge your grief during this season.
7pm Christmas Adam
Christmas Adam is a worship concert led by our Bethel Praise Band. Through contemporary Christmas music and scripture, the story of Christ’s Incarnation will be celebrated.
4pm Family Christmas Eve
Come and enjoy worship with those who have a harder time staying quiet and still. This worship experience will be geared toward our children as they hear the Christmas story through the stories of Mary, Joseph, the angels, and the shepherds. There will be music and even a chance for everyone to play a part in the nativity! This is a time of worship for all ages, young and old alike will enjoy singing songs, listening to the stories, and lighting their candles.
6pm Traditional Christmas Eve
Our traditional Christmas Eve worship will include Christmas hymns, scripture reading and meditation, prayer and candle lighting.

We will be doing a Blessing of the Gifts the Sunday after Christmas. We invite you to bring a gift or talk about a special gift you received. Then you will have the opportunity to share how you will use that gift to bless others. Our gift blessings will be interspersed between Christmas hymns, so be ready to call out your favorite Christmas hymn numbers.
