Celebrate Christmas Eve

AT VALLEY CHURCH

For a child will be born for us, a son will be given to us,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
He will be named Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

What to expect at Christmas Eve

How many worship gatherings will there be?

This year we’re celebrating the birth of Jesus with six worship gatherings. Monday, December 23 at 6:30 pm and Tuesday, December 24 at 2, 3:30, 5, 6:30 and 11 pm!

The first five services will be identical, and at 11 pm we’ll host a special Candles and Carols celebration in the Chapel.

What services will have candle lighting?

All of them! We’ll have a special time of worship and reflection at the end of each service with candle lighting.

What is Candles and Carols in the Chapel?

Our 11 pm worship gathering on December 24 will be a special time of acoustic-led music, classic Christmas carols, and a traditional Christmas message.

Will there be something for kids?

Absolutely! Nursery will be provided for children ages 0-2. There will be a fun, quiet activity for the older kids. We’ll also have a special children’s message. (Keep an eye out for a few surprises!)

Nursery will not be provided for our 11 pm gathering.

What kind of music will there be?

Our worship team will lead a mix of classic Christmas carols and modern worship songs.

Will there be photo opportunities?

For sure! Come early and get a family photo in front of our giant tree or one of our decorative photo stations in the atrium.

What should I wear?

There is no expectation. From jeans, to ties, to dresses, everything is welcome. Come as you are!

How long is the service?

Each worship gathering will be 70 minutes. Candles and Carols will be one hour.

What happens if I need to step out during the service?

We love having kids involved in our worship—especially at Christmas! But sometimes they get a little antsy and you may feel the need to step out. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! We livestream our worship gatherings in multiple locations in the building. One of our Guest Experience volunteers will be happy to point you in the right direction.

What kind of message should I expect?

Pastor Quintin will share an inspirational and relevant Christmas message rooted in the teachings of God’s Word.
