Christmas Eve services on campus - 4:30, 5:00 and 5:30 p.m.
Three 45-minute services will be offered on campus - each with a reduced seating capacity to 50% to create a safer experience and ensure social distancing rules. Because of this we are taking reservations for each service to try to ensure each person has a seat. Supplies for communion and the candlelight portion of the service will be picked up by attendees as they arrive.

How to have Communion at home
(If you did not preorder supplies)
Jesus instructed His followers to use bread and wine to remember the sacrifice He was going to make when He died for our sins on the cross, and we will observe this during the Christmas Eve service.
If you did not preorder supplies for tonight, don't worry about having the right "bread" or "wine" for Communion. It's not about those specific things; it's about your heart and being thankful for the personal sacrifice Jesus made by dying on the cross because of his love for us. Here are some easy things you can gather in order to have Communion at your home:
THE BREAD: And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me." Luke 22:19
- Flour tortillas
- Goldfish crackers
THE WINE: "This cup is the new covenant between God and his people--an agreement confirmed with my blood, which is poured out as a sacrifice for you." Luke 22:20
Remember, Jesus is less concerned about the specific components used to celebrate Communion
and more concerned that we celebrate it.
