Dear Dickinson Family and Friends,
We have a special treat for you this evening. Our Music Ministry will be presenting Sounds of the Season on Facebook and YouTube at 7:00 pm. The Chancel Choir and Handbell Choir will be performing music to prepare us for our celebrations of the birth of Jesus.
Although Christmas Eve worship will look different from years past, the message will remain the same - To Us a Savior is Born. Still, be ready to experience the power of Christmas because of the presence of Christ! Many people have been working behind the scenes for the last two months in order to offer the most meaningful Christmas Eve worship experience possible.
We have added an additional Christmas Eve worship time, to take into account social distancing (each service will be limited to 125 persons who sign up for RESERVED seating):
1:00 pm Children’s Christmas Eve
3:00 pm Christmas Eve
5:00 pm Christmas Eve
7:00 pm Christmas Eve
Children’s Christmas Eve will include halos, crowns, and shepherd’s headdress again. The remaining three Christmas Eve worship experiences will be identical in order, music, scripture, and message. All four worship services will end OUTSIDE on our front lawn singing Silent Night, Holy Night. Reserve your seat on our website: dickinsonfirst.org
Many members and friends must remain home for health reasons (we support you!). Therefore, we will live-stream the 1:00 pm Children’s Christmas Eve worship and the 3:00 pm Christmas Eve worship. Both will also be recorded and be available on-line for viewing later.
Doors will open fifteen minutes before each service (no need to come early to get a “good seat”) and we will follow our regular in-person worship protocols (facemasks, social distancing, and no congregational singing).
