Join us for any or all of the services offered

7:00 Experience! Christmas – Experience! Christmas this year by becoming part of the Christmas story.  We’ll gather in the sanctuary and everyone will have a part.  Who is your favorite character in the story of Jesus’ birth?  Come dressed as an angel, Mary, Joseph, a donkey, cow, or dove, the innkeeper, a shepherd, a Wise One, or even a star.  We’ll have extra costumes ready, so don’t worry if you forget yours.  This service will not be available online.  Since Lucas County is currently experiencing a high level of transmission of the coronavirus, one of the ways we love one another and love our neighbors is by masking in worship.  You won’t need to learn any lines this year, just come and be part of the festive Christmas cheer!

9:00 Wholly Christmas – Wholly Christmas celebration online (live.sylvaniafirst.org) or in-person.  We’ll gather in the sanctuary to hear the story of Jesus’ birth through scripture and story, and celebrate his coming with carols and candlelight.  Since Lucas County is currently experiencing a high level of transmission of the coronavirus, one of the ways we love one another and love our neighbors is by masking in worship.  If you join us online, be sure to have a candle ready to light at the end of the service with everyone in your household.

11:00 Simply Christmas – Simply Christmas (online only).  Join us on zoom (https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81006639632) to contemplate with Mary the story and meaning of Christmas and to welcome Christ into our homes.  Be prepared with a piece of paper and a pen or pencil, a candle for everyone in your household and a match or lighter, and bread and juice (any fruit of the vine will do) to share together in communion on this most Holy Night.
