Christmas Eve Services


You’re invited to celebrate with us at one of these Christmas Eve services, a special tradition for the whole family. This year, you can choose to attend online, or in-person at one of 10 services.

We’re going to offer Christmas Eve services in both formats this year, for two reasons: 1) As a church, we’re burdened by the loneliness and isolation experienced by so many, especially during the Christmas season and 2) We believe we can increase precautions for this unique event, to create an environment that is as safe as possible. We’re convinced that whether experienced in-person or online, this Christmas Eve will be a life-giving, hopeful gift to all!

We’re offering in-person services for Christmas Eve in a format intended to mitigate the risks of Covid-19. We’re opening each of the services to a fraction of our normal attendance capacity, by utilizing free tickets. This allows us to spread guests out, with expanded time in between each service for increased sanitization of our campuses. Masks are required to enter any of our buildings and are to be worn throughout, and we encourage everyone to continue maintaining social distance while visiting. This year, we will not have Granger Kids programming for infants or young children during any Christmas Eve services, so families will enjoy the service together. Families and groups who arrive together need to sit together, spaced apart from other guests. If you wish to attend in-person, please reserve your FREE tickets online, and either print them out to bring with you or have them available to show on your phone.

Tickets are limited, so we ask that you kindly only reserve them for the one service that you know you will attend. We want everyone who would like to attend in person to be able to do so. If you have mistakenly reserved tickets you know you will not be using, please contact us to see about returning those so that we can open up more spaces for those who need them.

If attending online is best for you and your family, pick your service time, fire up your laptop to FacebookYouTube or, Amazon Fire, Apple TV or Roku and grab a few candles to join us, where you can fully participate in the experience from home.

Reminder: Anyone with any known symptoms of illness or those knowingly exposed to Covid-19 should remain safely at home and enjoy a service online.
