Join us for a joyous celebration of Christmas at First Presbyterian Church in Davenport. We invite you to our special worship services on Sunday, December 24, 2023, where we will commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ in a meaningful and festive way.
The highlight of the morning service, starting at 9:30 am, will be a heartwarming Christmas pageant featuring the talented and adorable children from our church. Witness their reenactment of the nativity story as they bring it to life with their enthusiasm and charm. This is an event filled with joy, laughter, and the pure innocence of childhood. Don’t miss the chance to experience the magic and wonder of the Christmas story through the eyes of our young ones.
In the evening, at 7:30 pm, we will gather for a breathtaking candlelight service, filled with the timeless beauty of Christmas carols. Come together with your loved ones as we sing hymns of praise, rejoicing in the arrival of the Savior. The gentle glow of candlelight will fill the sanctuary, creating a serene and peaceful atmosphere that truly embodies the spirit of Christmas. It is a special time to reflect, offer prayers, and embrace the hope and love that this season brings.
We understand that this year’s celebrations may be different due to the circumstances. As part of our commitment to fostering connection and community, we are also offering a children’s pageant on Zoom. Families are invited to pick up bags filled with costumes and Christmas goodies, making it possible for everyone to participate from the comfort of their homes. This allows us to come together virtually and enjoy a relaxed retelling of the Christmas story, ensuring that no one misses out on the joyous occasion. Bag pick-up will be available between 9:00 am and noon from December 21-23, and if you need an alternate time, simply reach out to Pastor Katie, and we’ll be more than happy to accommodate you.
First Presbyterian Church of Davenport warmly welcomes anyone and everyone who desires to be part of this festive celebration. Whether you’re a member of our congregation, a visitor, or even a grandparent looking to join in the fun with your grandchildren, we encourage you to come and be a part of our Christmas worship services. The spirit of Christmas is alive and thriving at our church, and together, we will rejoice in the miraculous gift of love that was bestowed upon us on that blessed night.
May this Christmas season bring you peace, joy, and an abundance of blessings. We look forward to sharing this special time with you at First Presbyterian Church of Davenport.
