Order of Service, Christmas Eve

Prelude: One Star (S. Albrecht & J. Althouse)


Lighting the Chalice Flame: (in unison)
We light this chalice on Christmas Eve as we remember the one who has been called the Light of the World. May we learn from the teachings of Jesus not only in this season, but throughout the coming year.

Opening Words

*What Child is This? (see insert)

Offertory: In Dulci Jubilo (E. Crocker)

Reading: Luke 2

Message: The Hope of the Christ Child 

Meditation/Candle Lighting


*Silent Night (see insert)

*Joy to the World (see insert)

Closing Words

Extinguishing the Chalice Flame (in unison) We extinguish this flame, but not the light of truth, the warmth of community, or the fire of commitment. These we carry in our hearts until we are together again.

Postlude: O Holy Night
