Christmas at GracePoint

Christmas Eve Services

You are invited to celebrate Christmas Eve with GracePoint Church on December 24!

We have two identical candlelight services on Christmas Eve: one at 3:00pm and the other at 4:30pm. We will livestream the 3:00 service.

Christmas is a time to worship the birth of our Savior, the light of the world. We will spend time to reverently reflect in awe what His coming has meant to us by lighting candles.

Candles will be available to pick up outside the Sanctuary. The tradition of candle lighting signifies how we first receive–and then share–His light.

We will have Christmas music specials and a message from our Advent series, O Love Divine.

Christmas Eve Service Times

Our Christmas Eve services are at 3:00pm & 4:30pm. The 3:00pm service will be livestreamed on our website and Facebook page.

We are located on the corner of Silver Lake and Rice Creek Roads in New Brighton, Minnesota at 2351 Rice Creek Rd., New Brighton, MN
