FAQs

What to Expect

Service will be approximately 70 minutes. Our live worship team will lead us in singing, followed by a message from Pastor Josh. The message will be streamed online as well.

When should I show up?

If you can, show up 10-15 minutes early to help in finding a seat. If you have children who will be checked into the nursery, allow for a couple extra minutes to check them in as well.

What will my children do?

Nursery care will be provided for children up through 2 years of age. Christmas Eve services are a great time to join together in worship as an entire family. We will have activity packets available for children who are with you in service.

What to wear?

Come as you are. You will find a full range of what people wear, from people coming straight from work dressed casually to those decked out in their festive clothing.

What to bring?

Bring yourself, your family and your friends.

What will this year's Christmas Eve Offering go to?

The entirety of our Christmas Eve offering is geared toward refugee resettlement. This year’s offering will go to:

WATER FOR ISMAEL

  • Water for Ishmael exists to partner with the local church to build a welcoming community for Toledo-area internationals, to share the hope and love of Jesus Christ, and to empower internationals with skills to become successful.
EPC WORLDWIDE SYRIAN REFUGEE FUND/AFGHAN REFUGEE CHRISTIAN MATERIALS (TRANSLATION AND PRINTING)
  • In response to what is being called the worst humanitarian crisis of our time, the EPC has launched an emergency relief fund, EPC Worldwide Syrian Refugee Fund/Afghan Refugee Christian Materials (translation and printing), to help with the Syrian refugee crisis in the Middle East and Europe . The EPC is joining with church partners in Lebanon, Turkey, and Germany to not only assist refugees with physical needs, but also to share the gospel to meet their spiritual needs.
