Coming and Going on Christmas Eve

We’re so glad to welcome more than 6,000 people for worship on Christmas Eve.

  • To make it easier for everyone to be seated, please arrive at least 30 minutes early for the service you plan to attend.
  • Enter through the Main Entrance on Weber Street. Once you’re inside, stay to the right side of the Plaza if you’re attending a Sanctuary service and to the left if you’re attending a Worship Center Service.
  • While waiting in the Plaza, pick up a bulletin, a kids’ worship bag and a candle as you reach those stations. Enjoy a cookie too!
  • Families making use of our nursery can move directly to the nursery, located on the right as you enter the Sanctuary building from the Plaza. A host can assist you.
  • Our handicapped friends and those needing assistance should enter at the drop off and ramp on Bijou Street.
  • As the Sanctuary and Worship Center fill, our ushers will keep an eye on capacity. Once all seats are full, hosts will direct worshipers to overflow spaces with video from the Sanctuary service. The 5:30 and 7 p.m. services are expected to be least crowded.
  • We are unable to accommodate saving seats. Please meet your party before entering the Sanctuary or Worship Center.
