Christmas 2017 @ City Road Chapel
Christmas is the time when we celebrate the coming of God’s light into the world, remembering the birth of Jesus Christ. Our celebration is focused this year on December 24, Christmas Eve, as we gather for worship and our shared community meal.
Christmas Eve Events
Celebrate Worship Gathering
10 a.m. in the City Road Chapel Sanctuary
Our morning worship will focus on themes from the 4th Sunday in Advent, that season of waiting and anticipation for the coming of Christ. Due to the busy schedule we are canceling our 8 a.m. worship service that morning.
Jesus’s Holy Birthday
A Contemporary Service of Worship
4 p.m. in the City Road Chapel Sanctuary
This is our “family friendly” contemporary retelling of the Christmas story, using visuals and music to connect to the meaning of the season. The service includes communion and the traditional candlelighting and singing of Silent Night to close the service. The service has a casual feel and all are welcome to come as they are to celebrate the birth of Christ.
Feast Community Meal
5 p.m. in the City Road Chapel Fellowship Center
City Road Chapel is hosting our regular 4th Sunday Feast Community Meal . . . with a little twist. We will have our regular great meal and good conversation, AND we’ll also have a time of singing our favorite Christmas songs. We are always looking for volunteers to help serve the meal (please arrive at 3 p.m. to setup) and ALL are welcome to be a part of this time of food and fellowship.
The Day Has Come
A Service of Lessons and Carols to Celebrate Christ’s Birth
11 p.m. in the City Road Chapel Sanctuary
This is a more traditional retelling of the Christmas story using the scriptures and Christmas carols. The service includes communion and the traditional candlelighting and singing of Silent Night to end the service. It is always a great experience to leave at midnight and know that Christ has come on Christmas.
