Christmas Eve Services
We will offer four identical Christmas Eve services, but, as with all things this year, it’s going to be a little different than usual. Our Christmas Eve services will be split between Sunday, December 20 and Thursday, December 24. Here the schedule:
- Sunday, December 20, 9:00am – Nativity Animals Petting Zoo
- Sunday, December 20, 10:30am – Streaming Available – Nativity Animals Petting Zoo
- Thursday, December 24, 2:30pm – Streaming Available
Thursday, December 24, 4:00pm– Streaming Available – This service has reached its seating capacity
At all services we will enjoy new and classic Christmas songs, activity boxes for the kids, a relevant message, and, of course, Silent Night by candlelight.
Sign language interpreting will be available on Sunday at 10:30am and Thursday at 2:30pm.
Christmas Eve Offering
Christmas is an amazing season of giving and since our Christmas Eve services are the highest attended worship experiences throughout the year we thought, what a great night to take an offering. That sounds like church, right? But this offering is very different because when it comes to our Christmas Eve offering, we turn around and give every last dollar away. Our church and community benefit from the work of great organizations around us and we want to bless them this Christmas.
This year we are excited to share our Christmas Eve offering with two great organizations: Samaritan’s Purse, and Safe Families for Children.
Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ. The organization serves the Church worldwide to promote the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Click here to learn more about Samaritan’s Purse.
Safe Families for Children is a nation-wide nonprofit organization that hosts vulnerable children and creates extended family–like supports for desperate families through a community of devoted volunteers who are motivated by compassion to keep children safe and families intact. SFFC seeks to keep children safe during a family crisis such as homelessness, hospitalization, or domestic violence in an effort to prevent child abuse and/or neglect. Keystone is excited to be helping to start a chapter of SFFC here in Washtenaw County. For more information click here. SFFC website.

What About After Christmas Eve?
On the Sunday after Christmas, Keystone is closed. CLOSED? No Church on December 27! Why would a church close? The reason we close is so that our entire team of volunteers (hundreds that serve each and every week) can have a holiday Sunday off to spend however they like. But we will be back to our normal Sunday schedule on January 3.
If you cannot make it to Christmas Eve but you would like to check out Keystone, please look around our website. Also, we will be starting a great new sermon series in January called “Love & Lead.”
