Come wrap up the season of Advent—of waiting and longing for the Messiah’s arrival—with a joy-filled celebration of Christ’s birth at one of Calvary’s Christmas Eve Candlelight services. Enjoy beautiful music, creative elements, a biblical message, and the lighting of candles.

Through these moments, the Good News of Jesus will be presented—which is an invitation for a fearful and broken world to experience more of God’s hope, peace, joy and love.

What to Expect

Christmas Eve Candlelight
at Calvary Church

When are Calvary’s Candlelight services?

Both  services in the Worship Center, on December 23 at 7:00pm and December 24 at 4:00pm, will be the same Candlelight Service (in English with ASL available at the December 24 service). .

The service will be streamed on December 23 at 7:00pm and December 24 at 4:00pm on Calvary’s YouTube Channel and Facebook Live.  ASL interpretation will be available to watch on December 24 at 4:00pm on Calvary’s Deaf Ministry Facebook.

What happens at Calvary’s Christmas Eve Services? 

The 70 minute Candlelight services will include great Christmas music, lighting the Advent candles, and a talk from the Bible. Visitors are not asked to stand up or do anything embarrassing. In all that we do, our desire is to present the good news of Jesus, celebrating His coming into the world and the difference He can make in all of our lives.

What should I wear? 

We hope you’ll wear whatever makes you comfortable. You’ll find plenty of people dressed casually (t-shirts, shorts, jeans) and others dressed a little snazzier (slacks, dresses, skirts). Just come as you are.

What should I do with my kids? 

We have programs most Sunday mornings for Nursery up through High School. On Christmas Eve we invite all kids to join together with adults in our Candlelight Services. Families with very young children are welcome to enjoy Worship Center services together as a family with a live video overflow feed in the Nursery.

What kind of church is Calvary Church? 

We’re a non-denominational Bible-teaching church that has been part of the community since 1931.

Will I be expected to give anything? 

Nope. We do give an opportunity during the Christmas Eve Candlelight service for our members to financially support the programs we run in our community and around the world, but guest are not expected to give.
