Christmas Eve Before You Leave

Wednesday, December 21st 7:00 pm

Holiday plans taking you out of Ames on Christmas Eve? Have other Christmas Eve commitments and can’t make it to any of our Christmas Eve services? Love Christmas Eve services so much you want an early opportunity to attend one. We would love for you to join us at Christmas Eve Before You Leave. This interactive, intergenerational service will include special music, carols, the Christmas story, and of course candle lighting with Silent Night. Following the service stop by the hot chocolate bar and take some pictures at the photo booth.

Christmas Eve Services

“We tell this story every year. We tell this story because it illustrates so clearly God’s desire to be in relationship with us. We tell this story because we, too, are invited to come to the manger and witness the miracle of birth. We tell this story because it brings us hope and good news—hope especially for those deemed powerless, unworthy, or unwelcome. We tell this story because it is a story we need to hear again and again; if we didn’t tell it, what would become of our faith? And so, on this night, we tell this story to pass along this good news and to continue to thread the generations together with hope” Sanctified Art, From Generation to Generation.
