Christmas & Candlelight Christmas Eve

Share the gift of Christmas with your family.

Advent is a time to prepare for the celebration of the birth of Jesus. But often, the anticipation of Christmas gets overshadowed by the hustle and bustle of holiday preparations.

This year, join family, friends and neighbors each weekend in December as we sing carols, light candles, and read the biblical stories of prophets and angels, Mary and Joseph, and the events leading to the birth of Jesus. We’ll even have special Advent activities for children to prepare them.

The King is Born

Make the weekends of December – Advent – part of your family tradition as together we reflect upon the significance of the Christmas story for our lives today. Whether you're a regular at Resurrection or this would be your first time, we have a place for you.

Candlelight Christmas Eve Services

The culmination of the Christmas season at Resurrection is our Candlelight Christmas Eve service. Plan to share in one of the most beautiful and meaningful worship services of the year. Each service has beautiful music, a message of hope and the cherished tradition of passing the candlelight – the light of Christ – as we sing Silent Night together.

Note: Childcare is available for children 4 years-old and under at all services except for December 24 at 9 pm and 11 pm.

Two examples of the projects and partnerships our offering will fund are:
