Christmas Eve 2021
Christmas is a season of open hearts and anticipation.  Join our Beloved Community as we step into the promise and purpose of Christmas–and look together toward the New Year and spiritual renewal.  You’ll find a church of great spirit, deep commitment and powerful vision–and a space of grace for you, for your beloveds and for all God’s children!  We delight in the presence of New Life, and in the promise of God’s abiding love.
If you’ve got other things going this Christmas Eve, please know that our church is on the move–year round!  Find us on a Sunday sometime in the New Year.  And grow with us in spirit and service…We’ll be watching for you!
Christmas Eve in Durham:
A Pageant of Song & Story
Friday Evening, December 24 at 4:30 pm + In the Upper Parking Lot
Join a community of all generations for a joyful celebration of Christmas, as we gather in the Upper Parking Lot — for an outdoor Christmas Eve pageant and service. We ask that you use the Lower Parking Lot to park.
A Christmas of Lessons & Carols
Friday Evening, December 24 at 9 pm + In the Sanctuary
A community from all walks of life gathers to celebrate the story of God’s love, the coming of the Light, and the Christ whose gospel brings hope to the world.  We are an Open & Affirming Congregation — where all come for blessing and where every life is cherished.  We’ll be wearing masks inside this year, and singing just a little bit (“Joy to the World” as we finish)…but the message of Christmas is as vibrant and potent as it’s ever been!
If you prefer, you’re welcome to join us for the 9 pm service on line.  We’re always on Facebook Live, and the ZOOM link is here below:
