Christmas Season Services
Christmas is a busy time. But, it is also a sacred time. At First Presbyterian, we have many traditions to help us remember that Jesus Christ came into the world to offer us hope and peace and joy and love.
- Through a Daily Devotion Guide members of our congregation share their heartfelt stories of faith.
- Our confirmation youth participate in services by reading scripture, leading us in prayer and lighting Advent candles that represent the light of Jesus Christ coming into our world.
- Our Sacred Music Sunday is an Advent season highlight led by our choir.
- Each of our children’s programs (Sunday School, Preschool, and K Plus) tell the story of Jesus birth in their annual Christmas pageant.
- Our congregation also participates in the Downtown Jefferson City Living Windows with a live nativity (complete with animals) outside. Inside we share seasonal displays, hot cider and fresh baked cookies, music and booth of Fair Trade items.
Each Sunday in Advent at 5 p.m. we hold an Advent Vesper Communion service. It provides a weekly sacred and calm space for each of us to prepare for the Christ child.
Christmas Eve Candlelight Communion services are held at 5, 7:30 and 11 p.m.
Come and be part of the Advent and Christmas celebration at First Presbyterian!
