Christmas Eve is beautiful and meaningful at First United Methodist Church. Whether you are spending Christmas Eve with us at Central Campus or Vessel Church, you will be filled with the Christmas spirit through the sights and sounds of this special day.
Christmas Eve Morning
Christmas Eve Morning at Central Campus will feature a delightful dramatic musical presentation during all three services. Choir and orchestra will perform at the 8:30 Heritage service and the 11:00 Open Table service. At 9:45 Atoned praise band will perform the drama with contemporary music.

Vessel Church will have Christmas Eve morning services at 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. Praise band glorifi will bring contemporary Christmas sounds to the congregation and Pastor Jaimie Willis will give an inspiring message. During the Vessel 10:30 service, children will give their entertaining interpretation of the Christmas story.
At Central Campus during the 9:45 Sunday School hour our children will have a “Happy Birthday, Jesus, Party!” They will be playing games, doing crafts, decorating gingerbread houses, and hearing about the first Christmas. Children will be worshiping with their parents during the 11:00 service.
Candlelight Christmas Eve
Central Campus will hold evening candlelight services at 5:00, 7:00, and 11:00. Vessel Church candlelight service begins at 6:00. Whatever time or campus you attend, you will be filled with the Christmas spirit through uplifting Christmas carols, the sharing of communion, and flickering candles.
Pastor Ray Crawford will deliver the message at 5:00 and 7:00 services, Rev. Jaimie Willis will speak at Vessel Church at 6:00, and Rev. Stephen Cagle will preach at the 11:00 Central Campus service.
Communion will be served at all the evening candlelight services. The United Methodist Church serves communion to all who have a willingness to make their heart right with God no matter their faith tradition.
Sunday Night Live will not be meeting at She Brews on Christmas Eve. We hope those who usually attend SNL will spend Christmas Eve at either Central Campus or Vessel Church.
