The Season of Advent marks a season of new beginnings, as we await with anticipation the birth of the Christ Child in our hearts and lives. This means that Advent and Christmas services are a GREAT time to experience worship services – especially if you’re looking for something new, or looking to connect with a faith community for the first time.
You are warmly invited to join us — in person and online — for any or all of our Christmas services.
1st Week of Advent – Sunday December 3, 2023 at 9:30am
We will begin the season of Advent with a study of Isaiah 64, and a special proclamation from our intergenerational Puppet Team.
2nd Week of Advent – Saturday December 9, 2023 at 5:00pm
On the second Saturday of each month, we worship on Saturday night at 5:00pm, taking the following Sunday morning as a day of intentional Sabbath rest. In December, this service will be a Light in the Midst of Darkness service. We recognize that Christmas can be joyful, yet also bring bittersweet emotions of pain and loss! Join us as we offer our hurting places to God in a quiet, meditative service.
3rd Week of Advent – Sunday December 17, 2023 at 9:30am
We love music at Southminster! On the third Sunday of Advent, our Chancel Choir and Handbell Choir will offer a musical service that will enrich our worship and lives.
4th Week of Advent – Sunday December 24, 2023 at 9:30am
Christmas Eve – Sunday December 24, 2023 at 7:00pm
There’s nothing like a traditional Christmas Eve service to warm the soul. Join us at 7:00pm in the sanctuary on Christmas Eve. As we do each year, we will hear the reading of the Christmas story alongside beloved Christmas carols. The service will conclude with a traditional service of candlelight. Join us and experience the joy and peace of this special night.
