Advent & Christmas 2023

Advent & Christmas 2023

Welcome to the Christmas season at Pacific Beach UMC. These are joyous and memorable times and we are so glad you decided to spend some of this season with us!
Come along on a journey of learning and celebration as we remember the birth of Christ each year.

Below you will find information about the upcoming Christmas events in your church community.

Christmas at Home (Musical)
On Sunay, December 10th at 10:00 am and 6:00 pm, we present Christmas at Home, The Musical. Grandma is tasked with entertaining the kids on Christmas Eve while the family is at a Christmas Service. It’s a surprise, but she is determined to make the best of it. Woven together with music that beautifully tells the Christmas story, this musical is a great entry point for the holiday season. You won’t want to miss this lovely service of meaningful music and story, sung by “The Voices of Praise” and “God’s Squad,” with actors Lisa P., Sean and Isaac S., and other notable walk-ons.
Be sure to invite your family and friends!

Blue Christmas Service
On Thursday, December 21st at 7:00 pm, we’ll gather for our Blue Christmas or Longest Night Service. This is a quiet, reflective service that’s designed for folks who struggle with grief, depression, or seasonal blues. It’s a service that’s open to all as we seek to embrace the hope and joy that comes to us at Christmas, even amid life’s most difficult days. There will be a time for coffee, cookies, and conversation following the service.

Christmas Eve Services
December 24th at 7:00pm
Christmas Eve, we will have one service at 7:00 pm that will be full of music, scripture, and candlelight, with something for family members of all ages. As is our tradition, the service will end with candlelight and carols around the tree in the courtyard. During this season that can become full to the brim quickly, I hope that you’ll plan now to be a part of some of the many worship and fellowship opportunities at church.
