Christmas Eve 2020 at St Paul

Christmas Eve Services will look a little different this year. There will be four services. Three will be outside (noon, 2pm, and 4pm) and one will be inside (6pm). Because of limited space and social distancing, we are taking reservations for the service inside at 6:00PM so that we keep everyone safe. To accommodate as many people as possible, you can worship in the Sanctuary or several other locations via live simulcast. Each location has a limited amount of space and will fill up on a first come-first serve basis.

Reserve a spot for you and your family and choose the location that you prefer.

No reservations are needed for the outdoor services in our Quad which will be at noon, 2pm, and 4pm. We will also live stream the 6pm service at and on the telephone at (205) 825-9484.

Connect: December 5-12, 2020
