TUESDAY, DECEMBER 24 AT 5PM,  8PM, AND 11PM - A CANDLE LIGHT CHRISTMAS EVE


Do you remember as a child what it was like enduring those days and weeks before Christmas? In so many ways it’s the anticipation that makes Christmas, Christmas.  


“A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices!” This single phrase from John Dwight’s classic Christmas Carol, O Holy Night, captures in so many ways the true spirit of Christmas. For thousands of years, the world waited for the fulfillment of God’s promises. For generations the people had been waiting anxiously for the birth of the prophesied Messiah.

 

At the heart of the Christmas story is a deep sense of hope for what could be. When Jesus came to earth, born in a manger, his presence meant that God had not abandoned humanity. As we celebrate the birth of the Messiah, we too have reason to celebrate. We are not alone and we can have hope that things in our lives can change too.


The culmination of the Christmas season at Audubon Park Church is our Candlelight Christmas Eve service. Plan to share in one of the most beautiful and meaningful worship services of the year. Due to the pandemic, our services will stream on YouTube, Facebook, and our church website

ADVENT at Audubon Park Church

For the four Sundays leading up to Christmas, the Church celebrates the season of Advent. During Advent, we light candles on the advent wreath. We hear readings from scripture that speak to God's promises, especially the promised One. We sing songs of waiting and longing to prepare our hearts and minds for Christmas and the birth of Christ. Below you'll find some ways to engage this holy season at Audubon Park Church.
