Our 2021 Christmas Season Schedule

Midweek Advent

Dec. 1, 8, and 15 at 7 PM

Join us for three midweek Vespers services during Advent. This year the theme of these Wednesday services will be “Deliver Us from Evil: The Christian’s Enemies of the Devil, the World, and Our Own Sinful Flesh.” Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament hope of a promised Messiah. Yet we still face these enemies every day as we wait to see Jesus return from where he has gone. We wait with confident hope and pray “Deliver us from evil.”

Dec. 22 at 6 PM

Join us for a gathering of Advent Preparation at Martin Luther. We will have potluck at 6 PM followed by a short devotion and hymns at 7 PM in the fellowship hall. This will be more of an informal gathering rather than a full worship service.

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, 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.”
