2021 Christmas Services

Please be aware that St. Paul is following current CDC guidelines regarding masks. Because Hamilton County’s COVID transmission level is high, all in-person attendees at worship are asked to wear face masks throughout the service. (If you do not have a mask of your own, one will be provided for you.) People living in the same household should sit together, at a distance of 6 feet from other households.

If you are unable to wear a mask, we ask you to attend the service from your home via the broadcast on our Youtube channel. 

Christmas Service Times

Dec. 24 – Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve, the candlelight worship service will begin at 7:00 pm, with special music starting at 6:45.

(Please note that although we normally offer nursery care for babies and preschoolers during worship services, care is not provided on Christmas Eve, so that our nursery volunteers can attend the service with their families.)

There will be no events on Christmas Day.

Dec. 26 – Lessons and Carols Service

Did you miss a favorite Christmas carol on Christmas Eve? Our regular Sunday worship at 10:30 am on Dec. 26 will be a Lessons and Carols service. (You might be familiar with the Lessons and Carols liturgy from King’s College Cambridge, which is broadcast on NPR.) We will hear a series of readings from the Old and New Testaments prophesying Jesus’ birth and sing carols and hymns after each reading.

Jan. 2 – Epiphany

The feast of Epiphany marks the arrival of the Wise Men at the manger. We will celebrate during the 10:30 am service with a Procession of the Kings. Come with the three magi to worship the Savior of the world! Children are especially encouraged to come, as they can participate in the processional and dress up as the three magi!
