Christmas Eve Worship Celebration | December 24th | 11:45 am

December 24, 2023 @ 11:45 am - 12:45 pm

Join Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis and the Jerriese Johnson Gospel Choir for a Christmas Eve celebration like you’ve never seen before! A blend of classic hymns and contemporary gospel, the music will ignite joy in your heart and set your feet tapping—as we celebrate the birth of a God who loved us enough to put on baby flesh. Love, born in our midst.

In a holiday season amid so much violence, let us celebrate how God moves through vulnerability. Return to the story of a Jewish Afro-Semitic baby born in Palestine, family forced to become refugees to prevent and occupying army from killing their child. Of magi who engaged in civil disobedience against unjust rule. The fiercest love that, once and forever, changes the world and calls us to join.

We’ll end worship with beautiful candlelight. Come, be in community this Christmas.

We have two worship opportunities:

11:45 a.m. ET at East End Temple (245 E. 17th St.) or streamed to YouTube, Facebook and Middlechurch.org

3:00 p.m. ET at Marble Collegiate Church (1 W. 29th St.) or streamed to YouTube, Facebook and Middlechurch.org

If either time works for your schedule, please consider coming to the 3:00 p.m. worship! We have more space at Marble and we know 11:45 will be crowded. But whenever you are able to c0me, please join the celebration. You deserve hope, peace, love, and joy.

Scripture: Isaiah 9: 2-7

Sermon: “Rebuild Joy” by Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis
