GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich's Second Congregational Church is offering three services on Christmas Eve this year, allowing a chance for everyone to participate.
A family service from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. will feature a dozen life-size puppets, made by church members, enacting the Nativity story. The church’s Youth Choir provides inspirational music. Optional child care for infants and toddlers will be available.
From 8 to 9 p.m., the Chancel Choir, with brass accompaniment, will lead the "Festival" service with carols, candle lighting, and a brief pastoral reflection on “Keeping Christmas After All.” A choral prelude begins at 7:45 p.m.
A Reflective service starts at 11:15 p.m. This quiet, meditative service in a darkened sanctuary will include Communion, candle lighting, carols and a brief sermon. It will close with the singing of “Silent Night” under the night sky.
The church is located at 139 E. Putnam Ave. in Greenwich. For more information, contact Gloria LaDestro at 203-869-9311, ext. 120 or email her. You can also learn more about Second Congregational Church here.
