Celebrate at One of 5 Christmas Eve Services
Paradise Valley United Methodist Church and Christians around the world celebrate the season of Advent beginning Sunday, December 3, 2017. Throughout the month, we’ll follow the theme of “Coming Home,” with messages on hope, acceptance and grace. On Christmas Eve, Sunday, December 24, we welcome the Christ Child, Jesus, at five worship services.
One Morning Service
At 9:30 am, we gather in the sanctuary for a morning service of Nine Lessons and Carols.
Special Family Afternoon Service
At 3 pm in the sanctuary, we offer a Family Service, which includes a Blessing of the Babies. Bring your nativity set’s baby Jesus for a special blessing. We’ll also bless your own babies if you so desire.
Three Candlelight Services
Traditional Candlelight Christmas Eve services are at 5, 7 and 9 pm. All are in the sanctuary.
Children’s, youth and adult choirs as well as handbell groups perform, accompanied by strings, organ, piano and other instruments.
Childcare is available at all services except 9 pm. There will be no 11 pm service this year.
Join us as we welcome the Christ child, Jesus, the hope of the world.
