Christmas Eve Services
We hope that you will join us for our Christmas Eve services on Thursday, Dec. 24th. In 2015, we will offer three services:
Children's Pageant - 5:00pm
Each year at GUMC, the children of our congregation are given the opportunity to participate in, The Christmas Story! This production that takes place in our Fellowship Hall with live animals! We are looking for children who would like to be a part of this tradition. Each child will be assigned a small speaking part to memorize at home - there is only one rehearsal, at 3:45pm the same afternoon. Bring your kids and family, this is a special GUMC family tradition! For more info or to sign your child up, contact the church office.

All are welcome for our candlelight communion services, which we offer at 7:00pm and 9:00pm. A traditional worship service, featuring familiar scriptures and hymns, as well as special music by our Chancel Choir. This special Christmas Eve service is a warm and inviting way to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and begin the Christmas celebrations. For more information, contact the church office.
