Join us as we celebrate the birth of Christ, and reflect on how “Immanuel: God With Us” still offers us peace, hope and joy today! There is no cost, but due to growing popularity, we ask that you reserve seats for the service of your choice (Please choose one service only so there is available seating for everyone who wants to attend.)

Is a reservation required to attend the services? Is it free?

There is no cost to attend any of the Christmas Eve services. While there is no actual ticket, a reservation for priority seating is recommended. Those with a priority seating reservation will be able to enter the sanctuary when the doors open 20 minutes before the service begins. 5 Minutes prior to service start, we will open the doors for those who did not make reservations.


Will I get a confirmation email once I make a reservation?

Yes. You will be emailed a confirmation, which will include an attachment that contains your ticket(s). The ticket is your proof of registration. You will need to bring proof of registration (the ticket) with you to the service. You can bring a paper ticket or show your ticket on your mobile device.


Once I make my ticket reservation, how do I get my tickets?

The tickets will be included as an email attachment in your email confirmation. You will be able to print individual tickets equal to the number of seat reservations you made, or you can bring your device and show proof of reservation right from your mobile device. You will also receive a reservation confirmation email with this information.
