Christmas at Northwest Hills UMC

Our December calendar is full of events, services, and celebrations to help folks of all ages get into the Christmas spirit. Our Gingerbread House Cafe is a fun event for the whole family. Blue Christmas is a more intimate and solemn worship experience in our smaller Chapel space for people experiencing grief and loss. Experience the Christmas story like never before on Dec. 11th at our Living Nativity event, with three performances featuring live music and animals. Bring your furry friends to the Blessing of the Animals on Dec. 17th and gather for Christmas Eve Candlelight Worship at 3:00, 5:00, and 7:00 pm. Finally, we’ll be holding one worship service on Christmas morning at 10:00 am.

Gingerbread Cafe
Generations joyfully gather upstairs in our spacious Family Life Center gym to decorate gingerbread houses at this favorite Northwest Hills UMC family event. Houses, cocoa, candy, icing, music and food will be provided. All you need to bring are creative ideas to make your house reflect the joy of the season!
Blue Christmas @ 7pm
The Christmas season can be particularly challenging for those experiencing grief, loss, and depression. Blue Christmas is a time for people to experience the hope and promise of the Advent season in a more intimate and solemn space. Gather together at 7:00 pm in the Chapel.
