Christmas Pageant on December 9
"Picture It!
The Christmas Story in Multi-Media"
 

This year's Christmas Pageant is being told through a tableau of staged photos, live narrators retelling the story of the birth of the Christ child, and the singing of a few carols by our children and their parents. You are invited to join us for a fun and new way to hear a long-time favorite story during 10:00 a.m. worship on Sunday, December 9.

 


Sanctuary Choir Presents Sing Noel! 
Sunday, December 16 in 10:00 a.m. Worship

By American composer Hal H. Hopson, Sing Noel! is a creative compilation of both familiar and less familiar Christmas carols, provided as choral arrangements for presentation as either a service or a concert.

 

Christmas Breakfast - Sunday, December 23
Fellowship - Food - Fondness

It is a very special community that holds onto a tradition that feeds the soul as much as the body. As has been our tradition here at CPC, before worship on the Sunday just before Christmas, beginning at 8:30 a.m., we will gather together with our church family and guests for the annual Christmas Breakfast in the Fellowship Hall. This holiday tradition that began decades ago by the wife of beloved pastor, Rev. John Najarian, is an opportunity to exchange warm wishes, share the spirit of Christmas, and enjoy a delicious meal. All are welcome, no reservations necessary.

 

MONDAY, DECEMBER 24
CHRISTMAS EVE

Family Christmas Eve Service at 5:00 p.m.   An intergenerational, child-friendly service in song and story. Rhythmic drumming, percussion instruments, and participation from the congregation will help to retell the Christmas story.

Contemplative Prayer Service at 9:00 p.m. Take a moment to pause from the hustle and bustle of the season, and prayerfully contemplate the Eve of the birth of Christ using the Anglican prayer service (in the Chapel.)

Candlelight Lessons and Carols at 11:00 p.m.  The story of Christ’s coming unfolds through scripture reading and carol singing. At midnight, we sing Silent Night on the patio lifting candles to announce the coming of the Light of the World.
