Christmas Eve-Eve Worship

Sunday, Dec. 23
7 p.m.
Sanctuary

More than 4,000 people worship at Alpharetta Methodist on Christmas Eve. We hold an extra service the night before — a Christmas Eve-Eve Worship Service — for those who are unable to worship on Christmas Eve because of work or travel. Church members are also welcome to worship on Christmas Eve-Eve, to free up space in the Sanctuary for our guests on the night before Christmas.

The Christmas Eve-Eve service is a traditional candlelight celebration with music by the Chancel Choir and Handbells Ensemble.

Nursery available.

 

Sunday Morning Worship

Sunday, Dec. 23

Our regular Sunday morning worship schedule will be slightly different on Dec. 23. At 9:00, your favorite Christmas songs will be seasoned with a country flavor, as the Vinebranch Band presents “A Country Christmas.” At 11 a.m. we will have our normal traditional service. Both of these services will be held in the Sanctuary. Sunday School classes for all ages will be cancelled. Children in pre-kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to a Birthday Party for Jesus, which will be held during each worship service. (See details here.) A nursery will also be available.
