With Thursday’s forecast likely rain, the Grace leadership team saw a great opportunity to explore moving from 1 outdoor service to 2 services, 1 outdoor on Wednesday night (when it is not raining) and 1 indoor on Thursday night.

Our heart in this is to provide 2 different spaces for you, done in similar ways, to gather together with the Grace community and celebrate Jesus’ birth. This time of year is too special to hold back. Come celebrate with us during one of our favorite gatherings of the year!

Here are the details:

Christmas Eve Outdoor Experience

Wednesday, Dec 23 // 5:30, 6:30pm behind the grace building

Join us outdoors for a Christmas Eve Experience. At 5:30pm, a short trail loop will open in the woods behind the Grace building to walk with your families to journey to the manger. Before and after the trail, we’ll be serving hot drinks for you to enjoy.

Then at 6:30pm, we’ll gather together behind the Grace building around the firepit for a service of worship with candle lighting (glow sticks available), teaching and carols.

Make sure to bring your outdoor chairs to sit + flashlights for the trail walking.

No childcare available.

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

Thursday, Dec 24 // 6:30pm inside the Grace building

Similar to the outdoor service, join us indoors on Christmas Eve for a Candlelight Service to remember and celebrate the birth of Jesus! As you enter, grab a candle (or glow stick for your kids) for each of your family + a prepackaged communion element (gluten free bread available).

At 6:30pm, we’ll gather in the sanctuary and worship through carols, teaching, communion and end with the tradition of candle lighting to remember Jesus’ birth.

No childcare available.
