Christmas at Hope

Christmas at Hope

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

What does your view of Christmas look like? A tree with presents? Family and food? Christmas itself was a rescue mission; a way for God and man to reconcile. Maybe it’s time to view Christmas from a different angle? Make plans now to join us for any of our Christmas Candlelight Services!

Candlelight Service Times

SUNday, December 23
3:00, 5:00 & 7:00 pm
MONday, December 24

PLEASE NOTE: Hope's regular Saturday evening and Sunday morning services will not meet the weekend of December 22/23. You're invited to celebrate Christmas at Hope on Sunday, December 23 and Monday, December 24 with our special Candlelight services! All six Christmas at Hope services are identical. 

What to expect

You're invited to join us for a powerful and inspiring Christmas experience featuring incredible musical worship spanning all genres followed by a timeless message of hope and peace that will have you talking for days to come! We conclude our service with a special rendition of Silent Night while the entire sanctuary fills with soft, live candlelight. If you've never experienced Christmas at Hope in person, make this THE YEAR—you won't regret it!

Did you know, it takes at least 99 volunteers for each Christmas service to be fully staffed? It truly takes a village—and that's just for Hospitalty. There are a several different roles you can choose from and each of them are equally important. So come join us for a fun and exciting season of serving, you won't regret it. And, don't forget, invite your family to come serve with you. We can't wait to share our Christmas with you! Click below to see all of our volutneer opportunities and sign up today.

What about kids?

We have something for everyone!

Because the story of Christmas is so important, we encourage all kids in 1st grade and above to attend the service in the Sanctuary with their family. But don't worry, we have a special Christmas kid's bulletin available. For those infants-kindergartners—who are welcome and wanted in our services—we understand they may prefer something a little less "confining." That's why we offer safe, fun, age-appropriate activities in our Hope 4 Kids building at every service. For the parents of newborns, we have two soundproof "cry rooms" available located in the very back of the sanctuary. 

Special Needs

Macky & Friends, Hope's special needs program for kids & adults, is offering special activities for the 3:00 pm services only both days. No matter what age or disability we want you to come and be a part of the fun, because if God makes them, we accept them!

A Few Quick Tips to help make your Christmas at Hope Experience fun and easy…

  • Don’t bring every car you own to Hope. Ride together and pick up that friend you invited to come. 
  • Come early but not too early and enjoy a cup of coffee on us.
  • Trams will be running during all services except the 9:00 pm Christmas Eve. 
  • If you require handicapped parking, make sure you join us a little early to ensure you have a space. (handicapped parking is not for the late comers) 
  • Blue Dot Zone is available to those who don’t have a handicapped sticker but need close parking. (The blue dot zone is for the elderly, pregnant, crutches, multiple kids under the age of 3, etc.)
  • Invite your friends to this wonderful Christmas experience
  • Have fun!
