Virtual Lessons and Carols

Northminster is hosting a special virtual Christmas Eve service at 6 p.m., 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. on Christmas Eve, premiered through Facebook and YouTube. Join us for carols and short lessons as we celebrate the coming of Jesus.

To make the event as close to live as possible, we have assembled candles for “Silent Night” as well as a few other treats for you. Please pick up your packet at the church (Tower entrance) at any of these times:
  • 9 a.m. to noon Saturday 12/19
  • 9 a.m. to noon Monday 12/21
  • 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday 12/22
  • 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Christmas Eve
This is also a good time to drop off your gifts for Night Ministry and financial donations. If you have donated for a poinsettia, you can also pick it up during the Christmas Eve time slot.

Live Events

  • Due to COVID restrictions, we will have no group live events.


In this season we are especially aware of the grace we receive from God, and we want to give in return from our hearts. Whether it’s a gift of warm hats and mittens, or much-needed socks and underwear for our homeless brethren, or offerings that support Northminster and the worldwide Joy offering, your gifts will spread the love, hope and joy of Christ’s birth through gifts to others.

Please bring your gifts to the church (Tower Entrance) during any of these times:
  • 9 a.m. to noon Saturday 12/19
  • 9 a.m. to noon Monday 12/21
  • 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday 12/22
  • 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Christmas Eve

If you would like to give in other ways, please see our Opportunities.

Your generosity is a blessing – thank you!
