We’d love for you to join us for Christmas at Westwood! Whether you are not sure about Christianity, new to faith, or a long-time believer, you are invited to join us to “Come and Behold Him.” Join us over the course of December as we ramp up towards our Christmas Eve Service where we will celebrate Jesus, the light of the world.
Throughout Advent, we will look at how Jesus offers us hope, peace, joy, and love. We believe that the very things the world needs, Jesus has to offer. We hope that you will behold the great light this Christmas.
Christmas and Christmas Eve
Because Christmas falls on a Sunday, and we know that many people either travel or have family come to visit, we know that it would be hard to make it to church on Christmas. Therefore, we are not holding a service on Christmas morning, instead celebrating Jesus’ birth the night before during our Christmas Eve service. At this service, we will sing carols, read the story of Jesus’s birth, reflect on its importance, and be led in a candlelight song.
Please join us at 5pm on December 24 for this celebration of our “dear savior’s birth!” Service will last about an hour, leaving plenty of time to join your family in Christmas traditions.
Sunday Morning Service Information:
Our services begin at 10 am and will typically last between 60 and 70 minutes. In that time you can expect to be led in singing, Scripture reading, prayer over our community, our country, and our church, as well as a sermon relevant to your life, and partaking in communion, sometimes called the Lord’s Supper or the Eucharist.
We live stream our worship services to our Facebook page, and you can find that here.
For those who want to join us in person, you can look forward to children’s Sunday school for your children, aged pre-K through 5th grade, with age-appropriate lessons about the Bible and what it means to follow Jesus.
Come as you are, dress comfortably, and come bear witness to what God is doing in Madison!
Every year, we publish a devotional, with thoughts written by the people of Westwood Christian Church. These will be published each week for the theme of that week. We hope this helps you prepare for Christmas.
