There is something especially beautiful about a Christmas Eve service.
Join us for a family-friendly gathering where we will sing carols, light candles, and retell the miraculous story of Christ’s birth. Be sure to arrive early to enjoy a festive photo booth and Christmas treats.

Identical services will be held at 3 p.m. and  5 p.m.



We're easy to find in Arvada, just off of Ward Road next to Van Bibber Park. There is plentiful parking in our lot.

Worship Arts Pastor Matt Anderson and Next Generation Pastor Kayleigh Leonard have curated special playlists. Take a listen and make these your soundtrack for the season!


What time are the Christmas Eve services?

On Christmas Eve, we will meet at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. The 3 p.m. service will be livestreamed. 


What time should I arrive?

We recommend that you arrive 30 minutes before service. That will give you time to get your photo taken in our photo booth, enjoy hot chocolate and cookies, pick up an activity bag for your kids, and grab your seats.

Can my kids attend?

Of course! Children and youth are welcome to attend service with you. Be sure to grab a goody bag (glowstick included!) to help your child engage and participate in the service.

We will have childcare available for children ages three and under. Check in for is upstairs in the Kids Hallway. When you walk in the main doors, there are signs pointing you towards the iPads, where you will put in your phone number and add kids into their classrooms. If you are a first time guest or first time checking your kids in, someone will be by the iPads to create your account. You will receive one name tag and one security tag. The security tag matches the number on their name tag, which is how we will match you up to your child when you come to pick them up from their respective classrooms. When you set up your account, we will ask for basic information including: name, address, phone number, and birthdate of your child in case of emergency! The nursery aged kids will stay upstairs in their classroom. 

Have a question?  Contact Next Generation Pastor Kayleigh Leonard.

What should I wear?

Feel free to wear whatever is most comfortable for you. Some people will have their “Christmas best” on, but there’s no pressure to dress up. Come as you are. We can’t wait to meet you.

How long is the service? What should I expect?

The Christmas Eve service should last around one hour.  Worship at both of our services are identical and led by a band. The worship gathering is designed to be meaningful for multiple generations and invite those inside and outside of our community to experience the wonder of the season.

Where can I watch online?

On Christmas Eve, the 3 p.m. service will be livestreamed on our website.
