About the Event
Silent Night, Holy Night:
Christmas Eve is a special time at St. Peter’s UCC in Skokie. It is a combination of honoring tradition, with well-known and loved Christmas carols and scripture readings, and celebrating the future, acknowledging the joy and hope of the newborn Lord of Hosts.
Also, as part of our service, gifts of baby items for the Niles Township Food Pantry will be collected. Diapers, wipes, formula, clothing, and baby food are considered “gifts to the Christ child” and will be placed under the Christmas tree, to be delivered to the Food Pantry the following week.
St. Peter’s UCC is an Open and Affirming congregation, and at Christmas (and the whole year through) we invite everyone to partake in Holy Communion with us, regardless of denomination, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, color, race, economic status, or physical/mental ability. The Lord’s Table is open to all. Children who have not had their official “First Communion” are welcome to participate as well, receiving a Candy Cane during distribution as an emblem of Jesus’ love for us.
Worship is at 7:00pm on December 24 at 8013 Laramie Street in Skokie and livestreamed on our YouTube channel. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-673-8166 if you have any questions.
