Advent and Christmas Eve 2020

Christmas Eve Services

Just like years past, we are offering two different Christmas Eve services this year, both available online:

  • Traditional Service, which includes scripture lessons, carols, the message, choir anthems, special music, and Silent Night candle-lighting

  • Contemporary/Family Service, which includes contemporary Christmas music, the message, the Christmas Story read for children, special music, and Silent Night candle-lighting


We invite you to have your own candle prepared for the candle-lighting. Please consider safety, either by lighting your candle on a table, using a battery-operated candle, or using glow sticks (which are part of our tradition for kids).


Both services can be viewed at any time using the links below:​

Christmas Eve Special Music 2020

This year, 27 members from the Hope Ridge UMC Music Ministry used their gifts of music to put together a collection of 32 special music pieces (almost 2 full hours) for the Christmas Season. Below you can find the entire collection (with an introduction by Jonathan Gordon, Worship Director) or individual links to any of the songs from the collection. A sincere thanks to all these artists, the Praise Team, and the Media Team!
