Sunday, December 24
Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday this year, so we are taking advantage of this calendar anomaly to try something new!
10:00 a.m. Angels & Shepherds
Embrace the wonder and joy of the season with Rock Spring’s annual Angels and Shepherds service! Scheduled this year as a vibrant part of our Sunday morning worship on Christmas Eve, this retelling of the Christmas story is sure to speak to both the young and the young-at-heart. All children will be invited to don a shepherd’s headdress or angel wings when they arrive and will later lead the congregation in singing “Away in the Manger.” This festive celebration of Jesus’ birth is an engaging and accessible experience to share with friends, family, and neighbors, so we hope that you and those you love will join us for this joyful worship experience!
4:30 & 8:00 p.m. Candlelight Services of Lessons & Carols
A service of Lessons & Carols is a service of scripture and song that tell the story of the birth of Jesus. These festive, identical services will feature many voices reading passages from scripture and exceptional music from soloists, instrumentalists, our Sanctuary Choir. They will close with the congregation singing Silent Night by candlelight.
