Martin Luther Evangelical Lutheran Church

Joy to the World!
Christmas at Martin Luther

Our 2023 Christmas Season Schedule

Midweek Advent

Wednesdays in December at 7 PM

Join us for three midweek Vespers services during Advent, as we prepare to celebrate our Savior’s birth. The theme of these Wednesday services this year is “A Holy Chaperone to Christ: The Law as Curb, Mirror, and Guide.” Our whole lives are lived by laws. In every situation of life we can list laws written and unwritten about what we must and mustn’t do. God also gives us laws—a holy and perfect Law. But this Law serves a great and unique purpose. Like the angels singing near Bethlehem and the wise men’s star, it leads us to Jesus. It’s our curb, mirror, and guide. It’s a holy chaperone to Christ and to his free salvation.

Christmas Eve

Dec. 24th at 7 PM

A service featuring 9 lessons and carols adapted from the Christmas Carol Service traditionally held at King’s College, Cambridge, England on Christmas Eve. In Word and song, we follow the call of the shepherds, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.”

Christmas Day

Dec. 25th at 9 AM

Joy to the world, the Lord is come! Let every heart prepare him room!

Christ came into the world 2000 years ago as a little baby to redeem us and be our Savior, and still comes to us today in Word and Sacrament for the forgiveness of our sins, life, and salvation. Join us for our Christmas day festival celebration as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus, Immanuel, God with us, “born that we no more may die, born to raise us from the earth, born to give us second birth.”
