“Come and Worship! Worship Christ the Newborn King!”
Christmas Eve Pageant, 4:00 p.m.
Children, parents and grandparents, church members and community neighbors, young, old and in between, all find new surprises in the story of Jesus’ birth when our children sing the carols we love, reenact the Gospel stories, and dance with joy during this exuberant and celebratory service.
Christmas Eve Lovefeast Service, 6:00 p.m.
This multi-generational service is becoming a beloved tradition at Sudbury UMC. Celebrate Christ’s birth during an informal, uplifting and joyous hymn-sing that also includes a simple meal of cookies and cider, familiar carols accompanied by a brass band, prayers, and an inspirational challenge from our Pastor. The service ends with everyone holding beautiful beeswax candles while singing “Joy to the World.”
Christmas Eve Traditional Worship, 8:00 p.m.
Worshipers who attend the 8 o’clock service will sing holiday carols, hear Pastor Joel’s sermon, “Be Careful What You Ask For,” and celebrate Holy Communion. Special music is always a highlight of this Christmas Eve observance. Finally, worshipers will light their candles while singing “Silent Night” in a darkened sanctuary.
Christmas Day, Sunday Morning at 9:30 a.m.
Christmas is on Sunday this year, and we welcome everyone to a Sunday morning celebration. We will sing, we will hear a sermon by the Rev. Dr. Samuel Wells, “God in Pajamas,” and we will share Holy Communion to celebrate the Incarnation.
