Christmas Eve Candlelight Service 2017

You won’t want to miss our wonderful Christmas Eve Candlelight Service at First Presbyterian Church of Tacoma. Our cathedral-like sanctuary will be filled with hundreds of candles as well as the sound of music from our Chancel Choir, soloists, Lindsey Bell Choir, chamber orchestra, and a pipe organ with more than 3,000 pipes. As in past years, we will be having a “lessons and carols” service that tells the Christmas story through readings and carols plus a special message by our Senior Pastor Dr. Eric Jacobsen. This year FPC’s children will be presenting some of the readings. The service climaxes as we join millions of Christians around the world on Christmas Eve by singing “Silent Night.” Then during the postlude those who wish can sing Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus.” For many of us, this service is the highlight of the year along with Easter. Join us and invite your friends and family. The service begins at 7:00 pm on Sunday, December 24. You may want to come early because this service is usually packed.
