Advent and Christmas 2019

At Highlands United Methodist Church, we are building a home where all belong… and we invite you to receive the gift of peace with us this Christmas season, as we celebrate the hope, peace, and love that we, and the whole world, are worthy of.

Christmas Eve at Highlands United Methodist Church –
Tuesday, December 24 at 2pm, 4pm, 6pm, & 8pm

Celebrate Christmas with candles, carols, and your neighbors. Both of our services have your favorite Christmas songs, including “Silent Night” by candlelight. We also bring the Christmas story to life with a Live Nativity during the service. All four services are perfect for all ages. The 4pm and 6pm services have American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation.

2pm & 4pm- Children and Family Service

This service is specifically designed to be especially engaging for those with children. The music, prayers, and Christmas Story are designed like a good kid’s movie- heartfelt and engaging for them, while still carrying meaning and humor for the adults. It’s Christmas Eve for short attention spans!
The sermon is broken into smaller parts throughout the service, as Rev. Brad discusses the meaning of Christmas with our lovable puppets.

6 & 8pm- Traditional Service

This service incorporates the most classic of Christmas eve traditions, while remaining relevant and accessible for those who don’t normally attend church. The music includes piano, organ, and hand-chimes. The Christmas story is brought to life through story, song, and a living nativity.

The 6 & 8pm services also include Communion- which at Highlands United Methodist Church is open to all people, as the bread and juice remind us that God loves all people, exactly as we are.
In addition to your favorite Christmas carols, this service will feature a beautiful rendition of “O Holy Night”.
