We hope that everyone who comes to one of Christmas Programs has the best experience possible, so here are a few great things to keep in mind when you come:

Pre-program Experience

-Special music from our Student Ministries and Collective College Ministry musicians

-Holiday hospitality – enjoy the free coffee (and hot chocolate for the kids!)

Seating & Parking

-We are not doing ticketing for the Christmas Programs, and seating is limited on a “first come, first serve”  basis.

-In the event that a service is full, our friendly parking attendants will let you know when you pull in so you can plan to attend the next service.


We have no way of accurately predicting which service times will be the most full. From past experience we typically have to turn some people away at our midday Christmas Eve service times (11am, 2pm, 4pm). For the best experience, consider attending a different program time.

For the best experience, please arrive at least 30 minutes early and with everyone in your party. If everyone in your party is not present when you arrive, we cannot guarantee seats for everyone. Because of Fire Code, once we reach a certain capacity, we cannot continue to allow people entrance to the program. Once the program is full, and the parking lot is closed, we will need to release any seats that are saved to accommodate those who are already in the building.

The program run time is approximately an hour and 30 minutes.
The Christmas Program is designed to be a great experience for the whole family, and there is also childcare available for newborns – 4 years old.

Just so you know…

Because of the energetic nature of this program, people with sensitivity to bright and flashing lights may want to sit in our Café overflow seating for the best experience.
