Plan Your Christmas Visit

Choose Your Service

Our Christmas Eve Services will be held at 4:00 and 6:00 pm on Monday, December 24. Each service will be about an hour. Our 4:00 service will be a family service with children’s corner during the service and childcare for ages 3 years and under. The 6:00 candlelight service will include communion. Individuals and families are welcome at either service.

Parking and Arrival

Plenty of parking is available on the south side of our building (off of Burwash Avenue). Please park in the south lot and enter through our Sanctuary doors located on the southwest side of the building (closest to Prospect Avenue). Once inside, our ushers can help you find a seat, locate the restrooms, or assist you with childcare check-in if needed.

Children

Our 4:00 pm service will include a children’s corner during the service and childcare for ages 3 years and under.

Please arrive a few minutes early to register your child, so we can give them the best care. Children are given security tags and parents take matching tags that are presented at pick up time. If you have any questions contact Marilyn Moore, Interim Children’s Director by email or call 217-352-2240.

Communion

Our 6:00 pm candlelight service will include communion. You don’t have to be a member to take communion. If you’re a Christ-follower who has received God’s gift of salvation through Christ, communion is for you!

Offering

This year’s Christmas Eve offering will be used to help purchase a building for NightLight and Song Sawang Church in Bangkok, Thailand. This building is where NightLight provides dignifying employment to Thai women and job training to international women who are affected by sex trafficking or commercial sexual exploitation. This same building where products are made daily will also provide a new location for Song Sawang Church (translated as “Shine the Light). Learn more about this giving opportunity here.

Where is the church located?
