Christmas Eve Role Call

Sign up for a role in the worship service.

Register Now

We are excited to begin preparations for this year’s 4 p.m. Christmas Eve Family Worship service. Our goal is to provide a meaningful worship experience for young children and their families through music, Scripture, and drama. Children will have the opportunity to participate in the service at various levels based on their interest, age and ability, and their family’s willingness to make a time commitment.

Those children who are interested in participating in presenting the service should closely examine the requirements for each role. Please take note of the dates and times required for attendance. It is important that all participants attend every rehearsal as indicated so that the service conveys the dignity and wonder befitting the occasion.

ALL REGISTRATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MIDNIGHT ON NOVEMBER 20.

When you register for any role, you are agreeing to attend ALL of the following which apply. Please note all dates are Sundays:
